Published: September 24, 2020

Client: Cement Plant, Southeast US

Material Handled: Cement

Size and Weight: 14” (355 mm)


This Vortex Telescoping Loading Spout features a 14” feed inlet with a load rate capacity of up to 15,000 ft³/hr (425 m³/hr). The extended travel distance specified for this application was 8’ (2.4 m).

The spout connects to a Vortex Model 40 Filter rated for an air withdrawal capacity of 1,600 ft³/min (CFM) – 45 m³/min (CMM).

Dust created during the loading process is vacuumed through the Spout to the Filter where it is temporarily trapped and later reintroduced into the load. Neighboring companies appreciate this facilities approach to limiting airborne particulate in the environment.


Manufactured cement is loaded into rail cars and transported to company terminals for local distribution.
