Dome Technology recently completed construction of the largest clinker storage in the Western Hemisphere, second in the world only to a Romanian structure Dome Technology built in 2008.
Located in Mitchell, Indiana, USA, this dome for Lehigh Cement, a subsidiary of Lehigh Hanson, stands 220 feet in diameter and 160 feet tall. Its storage capacity maxes out at 169,000 metric tons, and three on-grade reclaim tunnels achieve 83 percent live reclaim.
“It’s a colossal project. It’s one of our bigger domes as far as storage capacity,” said Dome Technology sales manager Lane Roberts.
The project is being featured in the BMHR issue of World Cement, coming out soon.
