Seminar success in the UK and South Africa

November 2019

During November our rotary engineering team have been busy sharing their know-how at two productive training seminars held in the UK and South Africa.

More than 50 of our customers from the cement, chemicals, fertilisers and minerals industries across the UK, Europe and South Africa joined us to gain new knowledge and skills in mechanical maintenance of rotary kilns and vessels.

“The feedback we are receiving this year is exceptionally positive, again, and the participants are already implementing their newly-acquired insight and technical skills. Our seminars focus on helping our customers to better understand their rotary vessels, to spot potential problems and understand the root causes, carry out corrective and preventative procedures and know when to call us for help.”

Steve Machin – Technical Manager, British Rema Rotary Engineering

“The course was and will be a great help to me in my new role and knowing that I can contact you in the future for any technical advice or assistance will be much appreciated. I’ve already mentioned it to the other area leaders on site regarding future courses.”

Rotary engineering expands its activities into China

October 2019

Following recent projects in Jordan, Oman, Egypt, Philippines, Iraq, Kazakhstan and the UAE, our rotary engineering division has now successfully completed major projects in China – continuing British Rema’s expansion into new and exciting markets.

The foundation for entering the Chinese market was established three years ago when our rotary engineering team was asked to help a global agri-foods business resolve performance issues with their Chinese-sourced OEM two-pier rotary dryers located in Ukraine.

After an insightful inspection, report and resulting recommendations from our team, the rotary vessels were fitted with an improved design of tyres, rollers, roller bearings, bases and tyre fitting systems.

Due to the excellent performance improvements achieved, our team was then asked to carry out a similar scope of work in one of the company’s Russian plants – which has now also been returned to full operating efficiency, resulting in a thoroughly delighted client.

Based upon these successful outcomes in Ukraine and Russia, the rotary engineering team was subsequently asked to carry out full inspections on three plants across the Chinese mainland.

Following our inspections last year, we recommended that tyre and roller resurfacing combined with realignment of the vessels would be enough to bring all three plants back to full operating efficiency. The resurfacing and realignment works were carried out in September 2019, again resulting in an immediate positive impact on plant productivity.

We’re incredibly proud that our rotary engineering team’s technical ability, experience and know-how enabled them to achieve outstanding performance and reliability improvements for our client whilst carrying out a broad range of services from basic alignment and grinding work through to inspections, design, supply and installation of major parts on a global basis.

New generation equipment designed to meet Aerospace customers’ demand

April 2019

British Rema has installed a new generation of its rotary classifier impact mill (CLM) at its processing facility in Chesterfield, UK, increasing capacity by 33%.

Once processed, the polymer material is used as an ingredient within composites manufacturing and is used in many applications ranging from aerospace to renewable energy generation.

The new CLM equipment incorporates a high-level control system to enable greater process control, reducing variability and enabling greater stability in production. A SCADA data acquisition system is also integrated, allowing the operation to be monitored remotely and in real-time through a variety of graphical and numerical data points. This enables optimisation of the milling system’s efficiency and capacity and identification of any potential problem points within the process and system.

Simon Abbott, general manager of British Rema’s Processing division, commented, “In response to our aerospace customers’ demands for process controls and product traceability, our long-term plan is to roll out this technology across the whole of the processing facility to ensure tighter quality controls. This data-driven programme of continuous improvement will benefit all our contract processing customers.”

British Rema’s Process Equipment engineering team are currently working on replicating the design and build of a similar CLM plant incorporating the SCADA system for installation at one of our customer’s facilities overseas.
