Cement fan motor replacement saves UK cement plant
A cement fan motor from MENZEL helped to prevent a cement plant shutdown. 3300V kiln fan motor solution from stock.
MENZEL Great Britain were called on an urgent basis following the catastrophic failure of a UK Cement Plant, kiln fan motor. With the existing failed cement fan motor design now obsolete and typical replacement from new in excess of 30 weeks, Menzel were approached to see if they could assist with their unique stocking policy. Menzel provided an alternative 3300V kiln fan motor solution from stock, which could get the cement plant back up and running, as the current situation saw the cement plant completely shutdown with production losses mounting.
Menzel engineers assessed the information from the customer, checked stock levels and fortunately were able to offer to the client a similar sized fan motor with minimal site adjustments. Whilst Menzel Berlin prepared the motor, the client and his local contractors made the subtle changes to the foundation to match up with the incoming Menzel motor.
Replacement kiln fan motor within seven days
With hard work on both sides Menzel Motors collaborated with the client with urgency and commitment and the replacement kiln fan motor was delivered from Germany, arriving in the early hours of the morning seven days from order. The replacement 3300 Volt cement fan motor was then fully run up to speed and brought to full load that very day.
This has led to a great new relationship with the end client and a very thankful cement plant management who initially were looking at weeks of non-production and possible job losses.
