How Do I Improve Equipment Reliability?

In the cement industry, reliability is the product of maintenance and equipment design. However, many factors limit the degree of reliability that maintenance teams deliver. It is critical that the equipment be designed to adequately perform its required function.

Cement manufacturers have expertise in their industry, natural raw materials, processes, and in-services equipment to produce cement to fill the needs of ready mix concrete which is one of the key building materials to support our nation's growth.

How Do Cement Manufacturers Maximize Equipment Capabilities?

How does operations actually use the equipment? This is a good question if you want to solve issues and not fight fires. Generally, every plant operates a little differently. However, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) designed the equipment using a specification supplied from or agreed to from the plant owner—often without taking into account how the equipment will actually be operated during production.

We founded Pure Prime Solutions (PPS) to partner with companies to develop environmentally sustainable processes and equipment through a simulation-driven approach. Note: There is nothing sustainable when you're fighting fires environmentally or otherwise.

How Could Simulation Analysis Save Money On Maintenance Costs?

Simulation Analysis is the process of developing a mathematical representation of an actual or proposed product to make sure that it will work as intended. Simulation can also be used for predictive maintenance by testing durability and reliability in the cloud. Engineers who use simulation analysis can verify their products much more quickly than doing hand calculations, which could take years instead of minutes!

PPS can simulate cement dust distribution in airflow, and using simulation analyses to verify product performance over its lifetime to predict when it will need maintenance (i.e., predictive maintenance).

How Could Simulation Analysis Save Money On Maintenance Costs?

We package a wide range of equipment options. We are not limited. We develop cost-effective environmental solutions—including green cement—that exceed your reliability requirement while meeting the needs of ready mix concrete—one of the essential building materials required for new construction projects. Simulation is fast while being precise to predict breakdowns accurately. We work with cement plant maintenance professionals to overcome barriers to achieving reliability in the manufacture of portland cement.

Let's Speak With Data — A Scenario For Your Consideration:

What If My Cement Plant Is Unique?

With our Cement Manufacturing Services we not only design, engineer, and manufacture, but we also support all of the equipment needed to manufacture cement. We are cement-plant-equipment-design experts. Instead of spending millions on tribal-knowledge-based equipment redesign, let our cement equipment design engineers design the cement plant dust collection system that will meet your operating requirements and achieve Cement Waste Minimization (CWM) using advanced technology and data-driven simulation analyses for the cement industry.

It is crucial to utilize the right equipment. Our cement plant design engineers will simulate and analyze your dust collection system to ensure that you have the most reliable dust collection system possible. We know how to deal with tricky situations as you produce cement—like high dust loads, material grades, moisture content, etc., and guarantee maximum reliability at an affordable cost.

Services & Equipment — Our Cement Industry Focus

At Pure Prime Solutions, our core focus is providing the best equipment maintenance and solutions to various industries. Our company was founded on decades of experience with equipment design, simulation, and analysis of industrial assets. This experience allows us to develop many innovative approaches that solve reliability problems.

Our team has the expertise need to design and construct new processing plants and optimizing existing plants for better performance, understanding operational needs and delivering better equipment through simulation-driven approaches.

The surest way to align a cement plant with the environment is by having a detailed understanding of its equipment design, operational performance, and real-world environmental impacts—including the increasing demand for green cement as one of the sought after construction materials. Our process starts with understanding what problems cement manufacturers are facing. We then apply specialized expertise to deliver the solutions that align with stakeholders' challenges and goals.. We ensure all project objectives are met within strict time frames by working closely with our cement manufacturers' people and teams. On the one hand, industrial assets such as dust collectors provide a crucial role in maintaining machinery function and efficiency. On the other hand, industrial assets create an environmental burden on communities and ecosystems.

Our mission is to breathe new life into
cement plant worldwide.

Helping professionals at cement plants improve their current manufacturing process equipment performance through environmentally sustainable processes through better designs, operations solutions, simulation-driven analysis, process improvement, asset management, and equipment modification for better operation, reliability—to support construction services, communities, and the environment.
