SIBELCO is a global material solutions company. As a diversified industrial minerals group, SIBELCO sources and transforms a wide range of minerals and is a leader in glass recycling. These include, for instance, silica sand, feldspathic minerals, olivine and clays. With over 114 production sites in more than 30 countries, SIBELCO employs more than 5,300 people worldwide.
Cristobalite is a high-temperature modification of quartz and occurs only very rarely in nature. For this reason, cristobalite is produced synthetically for industrial purposes from pure quartz in a rotary kiln at approx. 1500 °C. The main applications of cristobalite are dispersion-bound exterior paints and plasters, dental impression compounds, artificial marble, or countertops.
In Dessel, Belgium, SIBELCO operates the fully automatic filling station for cristobalite – designed and installed by the plant manufacturer EMDE within a short period of time. Thanks to the powerful weighing and control technology, up to 40 big bags can be filled per hour. Each big bag has a net weight of 1200 kg. To ensure the legal trade requirements of the filled bags, the W&M-approved SysTec weighing indicators are used. EMDE has been installing SysTec‘s innovative weighing systems and controllers on demanding filling lines for many years. To optimize the performance of the filling station, a weighed hopper was installed above the filling station to discharge the cristobalite into the big bag. This allows simultaneous filling of the container above during the big bag handling times.
“The W&M approved SysTec weighing terminal was easy to parameterize. I especially appreciate that the entire filling process is shown very clearly on the graphic display. This makes weighing technology fun!“Daniel Schaab, Software Engineering, EMDE
