Daily 23.000 tons of sugar beets are unloaded in the bunker, 145 days a year. As a result, about 100 million tons of sugar beet has slipped over the ABRESIST lining in 30 years, and yet 80-90% of the original cast basalt tiles are still in perfect condition.
In 2017, Kalenborn replaced ABRESIST plates and repaired joints in some areas. In this context, further areas were wear-protected with KALPOXY. In 2018 the Kalenborn fitters repaired the worn and destroyed concrete on the upper edge of the bunker with a solid KALCRET Hardcompound lining.
The photo shows the condition of the bunker in July 2019. Both KALPOXY and KALCRET show no signs of wear.
