Limestone storage – A spatial structure application


The cement manufacturing process starts from the mining of raw materials that are used in cement manufacturing, mainly limestone and clay.

The limestone is excavated from open cast mines after drilling and blasting and then loaded onto dumpers, which transport the materials and unload it into hoppers of limestone crushers. The clays are excavated from open cast mines and loaded onto dumpers, which transport the materials and unload it into open yard storage.

As we know cement manufacturer or cement company operator have to ensure that their product maintain quality and consistent properties. But most of the limestone quarries produce material of varying chemical composition. To obtain consistent quality in final product, quarried raw material must be blended before it is fed into the kiln. With our structure, any amount of limestone can be stored.

Although stockpiles are created by slewing stacker to minimize fugitive dust, most of the cement producers enclose their stockpile to protect the surrounding environment, and to prevent loss of material due to water runoff and wind.


The construction systems uses mild steel in case of limestone shed, no welding is required because the connection of the member consists of a very efficient moment-resistant mechanical joint. Limestone shed may be built in single- or double-layer configurations, depending on the load and span for the application. Experience suggests that for the spans required in limestone covers, a-double-layer is the most cost-effective.

Advantage of limestone storage shed:
1.For achieving effective prevention and control of potential fugitive emission

2.Lesser Operation and Maintenance cost

3.Comply with current environmental guidelines by CPCB (Central Pollution control board)

Conclusion: 

Our Structure is fully complying with new environmental regulations for air quality and prevention and control of fugitive emission. So that it does not require stock pile owners to make huge investments or shut down operations. Our solutions presented here not only allow affordable compliance, but also enhance the reputation of any plant.
