CEMENT FACTORIES Banner copy

Cement is a vital element in building infrastructures like buildings, bridges and residential homes. Many cement processing facilities follow standard safety protocols to ensure safety in the work areas as well as the safety of the workers and the neighboring areas they are located.

Cement is created by having to pulverize clinkers through the calcification of mixtures of materials that are calcareous at a certain temperature. These materials can be chalk, marbles, lime stones, lime sands, sludge, and shells. It can also be shales, clays, and slates.

Quarrying is one of the main steps taken in producing cement. It requires mining limestones by crushing them from mountains and then transporting them to the factories via a conveyor driven on the roads. The crushed materials are taken to a plant where these components are further grounded and dried. The raw material that comes out of this process have moisture. Heat is required to dry it up and remove the moisture, and kiln producing heat at a very high temperature is utilized. After the burning process in the kiln it is then transported to hydraulics that separate the air which divides the fine and the coarse materials and then they are blended in the homogenizing elements.

Fire is just one of the many possible hazards that can happen in the industry of cement processing. It can happen mostly due to the processing part and the raw materials used. The fires can become disastrous that it results in damaging properties, explosions, and ultimately causing injuries to working people and sometimes causing fatalities. Typically the fire hazard originates from the processes being undergone to produce the product as well as the combustible nature of the materials needed to make cement.

Cabling and Electricity

Cement plants require intense kind of energy and have so many heavy equipment that runs on electricity and utilizes too much power. It also needs a lot of oil for insulating purposes and equipment’s like capacitor, transformer and switch gears which are flammable by nature and pose a major fire threat anytime.

Explosives in the Quarrying Sites

Most cement processing plants have quarries located near the processing site. Quarrying requires using explosives therefore it is important to handle them with safety and in a proper manner to avoid any untoward incident.

The proactive approach in fire protection for cement processing factories is very much needed to avoid such tragic incidents from happening. Verifire is one of the best streamlined solutions for this. Verifire acts like a personnel’s eye that mans and constantly monitor risky equipment and areas round the clock 24 x 7. There is no need in hiring additional people just for the sole purpose of manning the area 24 hours. It can detect smoke and flame within 20 seconds at the first sign or in the very beginning and even less than that and provide instant confirmation without needing to go to the area affected. It can also connect without any issue to any fire control panel. Verifire gives almost none or the least fire false alarms than any other similar product in the industry. It can also capture a stream of images to detect motion and alert authorized personnel for any security breach.

Verifire can be integrated with existing fire alarm systems, this makes it easy to send alarm to everyone in the plant. Any fire and smoke alert can be viewed from anywhere using the mobile app. Live video can also be viewed in an instant you just have to connect the system to the internet.
