The Weba Chutes team successfully designed transfer point solutions for some of the largest producers of lime, limestone and cementitious products in the world. Our primary clients in this industry include Carmeuse Lime, the largest producer of lime and limestone products in North America, and PPC Limited, the leading supplier of cement in southern Africa.


With the LS1 to LS2 transfer point installed at the Carmeuse Lime operation in Tennessee, Weba Chutes created a custom design to facilitate the client’s needs while ensuring optimum production levels through reduced blockages and spillage.

The Silo discharge to Conveyor 2 transfer point installation for PPC Limited in South Africa accommodated the client’s exact requirements with a 1050 mm belt that can handle the lump sizes and tonnage of 40 and 300t/h of their operation.

Both designs have assisted the clients in optimising their production flows and are easily maintained through removable covers in the chute.
