Fly Ash Handling
The construction industry, especially those who produce construction materials, are aware of how important fly as is to their industry. Fly ash is a by-product from burning pulverized coal that chemically reacts with the by-product calcium hydroxide. Calcium hydroxide is released by the chemical reaction between water and cement. Fly ash has the properties needed to make concrete stronger and more durable. A company that produces construction materials particularly cement needs to find a steady supply of fly ash that they can use for their day-to-day operation. A fly ash supplier needs to have a nationwide network of terminals and fly ash handling transportation equipments that can efficiently transport fly ash to their buyers. They invest in the latest equipments and technology to ensure that they are able to meet the demands of their clients. Major fly ash suppliers also have material scientists, engineers and qualified chemists to assist their clients who may have any concerns with how they will effectively infuse fly ash into their products. They are always available to assist individual customers in solving whatever challenges they may be facing.
