Pace Company acted as the turn-key supplier of this Railcar unloading system for a large cement supplier. The process requires transporting over one hundred tons per hour of material to trucks for localized delivery. Cement is initially unloaded from hopper railcars into a pit and conveyed vertically 120 ft. via bucket elevator. A bin vent was installed to capture fugitive dust and displaced air created during the silo filling cycle. The material is diverted to the appropriate silo through a series of Vortex Seal Tite valves. From there, a Vortex Aero-Slide system conveys the material to a Vortex Dustless Loading Spout positioned over a truck scale and is ultimately gravity fed into awaiting trucks. This system was featured in a company-wide publication and became the model process for a vast network of transfer terminals nationwide.
Pace partnered with a contracting and engineering team to provide a complete turnkey dust collection system to a local aviation products manufacturer. This new American Air Filter Optiflo Cartridge dust collector is used to capture fugitive fiberglass dust created in the production area. An NFPA-compliant design is a must for our customers. Pace provided an IEP Isoflap passive isolation valve and a Nordfab quick-fit ductwork system with blast gates to dampen airflows and offer flexibility to the operators. Finally, a new Allen Bradley control panel was installed to control and monitor the dust collector fan, filters, isolation valve, and existing vacuum pumps in the manufacturing area.
Replacement air classifier for 100 tph of limestone at 92 pcf. Produced a 10’ unit that is a knock-down design for easy installation Sturtevant performed lab testing to identify the best unit to achieve 97% minus 325 mesh. Once determined, a knock-down design was manufactured that could be installed by removing the railing. With on-site supervision by Sturtevant and a capable team at the plant and
local contractors, we were able to install the unit in the time available! The project manager laid out a tight timeline and kept all involved
with good communication.

In this project, we needed a way to move a loss in weight feeder between 2 tanks. Pace fabricated a custom and easily movable stack up for the operator to move. A “rail” and stack-up was designed to include a Volkmann conveyor, Tecweigh feeder, and KWS screw conveyor with nozzles to “dedust” the citric acid prior to feeding to a mix tank. Detailing was done with a fabricator in Virginia and delivered to the customer on time! It fits perfectly.
