Synthetic Gypsum

Kamengo has developed a design practice capable of tackling complex projects, including retrofits of storage and feed arrangements that suffer from plugging.

Synthetic (FGD) Gypsum is a sticky, cohesive material that is particularly difficult to handle when wet.

When compacted, gypsum can gain a concrete-like strength.

In service are two mass-flow hoppers and Kamengo Feeders storing and feeding FGD gypsum in arctic conditions in Northern Alberta. Also, two Kamengo Feeders for handling FGD gypsum were installed in 2002. Each of these feeders discharged FGD gypsum from a 36.5-foot long discharge opening below a 55-foot tall silo.
