McInnis Cement project video available now

Dome Technology’s new video highlighting the McInnis Cement dome project in Providence, Rhode Island, USA, is available now.

The DomeSilo is 134 feet in diameter with a storage capacity is 40,000 metric tons, and McInnis will continue utilizing existing flat storage as well. To maximize the terminal’s abilities, McInnis selected a barge unloader rated at an aggressive 800 metric tons per hour.

Dome Technology executed a prime contract directly with McInnis for the dome storage, structural steel and mechanical work for pneumatic transport and cement reclaim. More specifically, these tasks required installing a truck lane, steel storage silo, DomeSilo, structural-steel convey piping support, stair platform with connecting structural-steel bridge to the dome apex and a reclaim tunnel. The team also installed an FLSmidth Ful-Floor reclaim system.

In addition, piping on the loading side needed to be routed up and over the existing warehouse; it then was anchored to a structural stair tower as it climbed to the dome apex. Load bearing on the warehouse wasn’t an option, so a new truss and structural-steel supports carry the weight.

“Dome Technology has been very good to work with. They’ve been very flexible and accommodating,” Demers said.
