Mechanical moles get to the bottom of silo storage problems

The Ash Grove Cement Company plant in Louisville, Neb., produces as much as one million tons of cement per year from raw materials such as limestone, clay, gypsum, and sand. The raw limestone is crushed and burned in a kiln to produce another cement ingredient -- a gravel-like substance called clinker. The clinker is then ground into a powder and mixed with other ingredients to produce cement. All these materials -- raw material, clinker, and finished cement powder -- are stored in bulk silos.
