Green Castle Cement Plant Expansion

Behrent Engineering was contracted to provide engineering and design services for the Greencastle, Indiana cement plant expansion project.  This project included a semi-dry conversion to 4000 STPD and a 5000 HP wet raw mill. 

Behrent provided engineering design and construction support, including mechanical, structural and electrical engineering.  The construction support required a full time engineer to be on-site during construction and monthly site visits by lead discipline engineers. 

Behrent was responsible for the following engineering and design services:

  • Detailing the plant air, water and fuel piping systems
  • Power system design
  • Designing the belt conveyor foundations
  • Structural design of the preheater tower
  • CAD drawings of the preheater structure
  • Preheater tower designed for a future 5 stage dry system
  • Design drawings for nuisance ductwork from the dust collection pickup points, to the dust collector.
  • Design of the supports for the ducts and the ductwork between the dust collector and the dust collector fan.
