Within the battery manufacturing process CMH have supplied bulk storage and mechanical distribution systems for Lead Oxide, used to coat the battery plates and on the other side of the process we designed, installed and commissioned a vacuum conveying system for Lead and Tin chips, the punchings from the battery plate manufacturing process.
For the revised system the chips were collected via a vacuum conveyor, stored in silos [fig 1] before being drawn off and vacuum conveyed to be re-smelted, hence reducing both handling and waste.
Cleeve Materials Handling Ltd. has delivered 2 materials handling and lime injection systems between 2014 and 2016 to us. We have found their equipment to be of a high quality and competitive. As a company, they have a can do attitude and have been very reactive to the few issues encountered.
