For decades, CDM has been an invaluable partner to a number of EPC customers for the material handling portions of their projects.
We will leverage our extensive experience to help your EPC firm deliver the best solutions to your clients, from the preliminary layout of your conveying systems and feasibility studies to designing, building, installation, supervision, and training. We specialize in identifying long-term cost savings and avoiding critical design flaws that can prove costly for your clients.
An EPC firm recently contacted CDM to get pricing, technical data, and specifications on a conveying system to feed wood chips to downstream equipment. Although it seemed like a very straightforward conveying application, further analysis determined that a conventional En-Masse or drag conveyor would not be suitable. Instead, the application would require a CDM Underpile Reclaimer.
A minor change in the layout was necessary to accommodate the material handling equipment, which CDM was able to accomplish with minimal redesign and cost. The result was a conveyor that made the application successful. There was an increase in the project’s upfront expenditure, but a lower-cost conveyor would have failed and required extensive reworking of the plant layout. This is how CDM provides long-term value to our EPC partners.
From the start, we work with our EPC customers to alleviate the burden of selecting the right piece of material handling equipment for the application. We also ensure that the selected piece of equipment is designed to be reliable.
We encourage all of our partners, especially EPC firms, to get CDM involved in the early stages of any material handling project. We can assist with every aspect of your conveying needs, basing our recommendations specifically on the product you’re handling, the characteristics of the product, the exact operating environment, and the expected service life of the installation. The result will be dependable conveying equipment that requires less maintenance and lower consumables turnover, with arrangements and layouts that are favorable to your operation.
