PMSA, Van Dyk Stene launch new African solution
Van Dyk Stene is the first cement plant in Africa to use a full curing system from German technology leader Kraft Curing, distributed locally by PMSA. The total automated solution supplied, covers batching (mixing and weighing), a stacker and destacker, an RE1400 block making machine and automated wet and dry side product handling.
The advanced technology from Kraft Curing provides PMSA’s customers with the solution to reduce their input costs by decreasing the quantity of cement used in the production process whilst maintaining the quality material.
“Van Dyk Stene is now able to achieve the same strength requirements, but with 30% less cement, a cost-saving that will have a significant impact on its bottom line,” says Quintin Booysen, PMSA sales and marketing manager.
The Kraft Curing technology offers consistent control of temperature and relative humidity levels of between 90 and 95 percent together with improved operational efficiency.
Booysen explains that PMSA focuses on providing total concrete solutions to meet all of its customers’ requirements. PMSA was awarded the contract by Van Dyk Stene to supply all of the equipment for the state-of-the-art plant which officially opened on 20 May 2015.
The company has immensely invested in modern production techniques for efficient high-volume output of its broad product range.
