Band for a rotary kiln, from China to Horishni Plavni
Band (106 mts and 7 meters) and cylinder (65 mts and also 7 m), that we carried from China to inland Ukraine.
This a band that is supposed to hold together a large rotary kiln, used in processing rawiron ore to iron ore pellets. The ones that later are melted into iron and steel.
We carried this oversized cargo from China to Ukraine, deep inland. The band’s diameter is 7 mtrs, the cylinder is a little smaller. The band is really an oversized load, the one you need to carry with police escort. It is also too heavy to carry by the roads, and railway is not useable as 7 mtrs is just too wide. Therefore, we carried it via the Dnipro river and rolled it off the barge.
Remark: that was probably the only time we crawled along the berth with a ruler measuring water level in Dnipro, hoping it won’t change too much too fast. Centimeters did matter.
