Stone, Glass and Concrete - KWS Manufacturing

Processing Stone, Glass & Concrete Products

The minerals mined from the earth must be processed into finished products for consumer use. Glass, cement, concrete, brick, tile, wallboard, hydrated lime, and diatomaceous earth are some of the products we use every day. KWS equipment is found throughout the minerals processing industry to convey these products. Our heavy duty, high torque conveyors are designed for the harsh conditions and can power through upset conditions to keep the process running. Our unique dust-tight designs reduce emissions and improve working conditions in the plant.
