Railton Cement Plant, TAS
Located in North West Tasmania, Cement Australia’s Railton plant produces in excess of one million tonnes of cement per annum, the majority of which is transported to the Victorian and New South Wales markets.
Operational since 1923, the plant produces cement using the fuel-efficient pre-calciner manufacturing process and has its own limestone mine facility and operation. All production at the plant is controlled and closely monitored by a Gamma-Metrics cross belt x-ray analyser along with a fully equipped laboratory.
Raw material for the Railton plant is sourced from Cement Australia’s nearby mine. Cement manufactured from the plant is then transported 26kms to the Devonport shipping.
Great emphasis is placed on achieving consistency of products and processes, from the mining of raw materials, to the manufacture and delivery of bulk and bagged cement. Advanced process controls and laboratory systems are used to manage and monitor each step of the production and delivery process to ensure the highest standards.
