#WarrenYard_cement #cement Cement Works - 14 - Silos for Loading Bulk Cement Wagons. This is structure 27 on the site map. It receives cement powder from the Bulk cement storage silos (25) via an aerial conveyor from the transfer house (26) for loading bulk cement wagons, the prototype fills CEMFLO wagons but mine will load PRESFLO wagons too. The building is based on the ex-cement facility (Blue Circle Cement Co.) at Cliffe in Kent and implements many of the features of it. Information and a link to a YouTube video showing how the wagons were loaded can be found in part 5 of this series of posts. Key features include the styling of the silos where the base level is very much the same cross-section as the silos themselves, I have found that many were designed in this way as a means of simplifying the structural aspects in a cost effective manner. Detail features include the loading personnel walkway with hinged platforms, external framework supports, wagon filling pipes and entrance canopies. The building uses 60% of the Walthers Add On Silos kit 933-3023, the remainder of which was used for the silica sand silos (12). Jim
