Belt Conveyors Dos Santos High Angle Conveyors for Spanish Refineries
Conveyor specialist Dos Santos International supplies two more Snake high angle conveyors to Spain.
Dos Santos International (DSI) announced the order of two DSI Snake sandwich high angle conveyors for facilities of Spanish refinery operator Repsol. DSI had already implemented a Snake at the Aceralia Steel Mill in Gijon, Spain, in 2003, replacing an older and problematic vertical pocket belt system. The Gijon Snake has been elevating raw coal at a 75 degree angle successfully for the last seven years and counting.
One of the new conveyors is being built at the Muskiz Refinery in North-Eastern Spain, where it will elevate coke and deliver the hot product to an intermediate storage. Specially designed for operations in a potentially explosive environment this conveyor system complies with the latest Atex standards.
A second DSI Snake was ordered with a special C-shaped profile for a refinery in Cartagena. The Cartagena Snake will be part of the facility's sulfur storages, transporting solid particles from the solidification process.
