NYC – Queens – Astoria: Kaufman Astoria Studios

Image by wallyg
Kaufman Astoria Studios was opened by the legendary Adolph Zuckor in 1920 for the Framous Players Film Company, which evolved into Famous Plaskers-Lasky and then Paramount Pictures, of which he served as president until his death in 1936.

Over 100 films were produced at Astoria during the Twenties. New York was the center of the fledgling film industry, and Astoria was the Mecca of the Silent Era. The main stage, basement stages and exterior backlot were heavily utilized, with up to six feature films in production at any given time. It was here at the Studio that the moving picture industry developed many of the techniques that were to become the conventions of production. From Valentino, Swanson, the Gish sisters and W.C. Fields, Astoria was home to the great talents of an exciting new industry. With the advent of "talkies", production at Astoria blossomed. Drawing on the wealth of writing and acting talent of Broadway, the Studio profited from its proximity to "the great white way". The Letter, the first all talking feature film shot at the Studio, earned an Oscar nomination for actress Jeanne Eagels. The talking film debuts of Claudette Colbert, Edward G. Robinson and Tallulah Bankhead were filmed here.

The Marx Brothers moved from Broadway to the silver screen in Astoria to produce their first two films–The Cocoanuts (1929) and Animal Crackers (1930).. In addition to the scores of feature films produced at Astoria, the Studio was home to the famed Paramount Newsreels ("the eyes and ears of the world"), and Paramount¹s prolific short film divisions. By the end of this period Adolf Zukor, the man who built the studio, had already moved out to California, as did much of the film industry.

At the start of WWII, in 1942 the United States Army Signal Corps Army Pictorial Service took over the studio for the making of Army training and indoctrination films, during which it became known as the Army Pictorial Center. In 1970 the Studio was declared "surplus property" by the Army and turned over to the Federal Government. In 1972, the Government offered the property to the City University of New York for use as the campus for LaGuardia Community College. The city budget crisis, however, did not allow the development to occur. Production returned to Astoria in 1975, with the leasing of the Studio for the production of Thieves and, the following year, The Next Man. he Studio was formally re-opened in 1977, under the auspices of the Astoria Motion Picture and Television Center Foundation, which acquired a lease for the property from the Government.

In 1982 the title to the Studio was transferred to the City of New York, and in 1982 real estate developer George S. Kaufman in partnership with Alan King, Johnny Carson and others, obtained the lease from the City. Kaufman proceeded to renovate, expand and revive the landmark into a full-service, comprehensive studios capable of handling any type, size and style of production.

Today, KAS is the location for major motion pictures, independent film, television shows and commercials. Telvision show credits include Sesame Street, The Cosby Show, MTV Unplugged, and Angels in America. Motion picture credits include The Wiz, The Warrios, All That Jazz, Arthur, Ragtime, Hair, Brighton Beach Memoirs, Radio Days, Money Pit, Ishtar, Fletch Lives, Glengarry Glen Ross, Scent of a Woman, Age of Innocence, and Carlito’s Way. It also houses the studios of WFAN, the nation’s first all-sports talk radio station.

Famous Players-Lasky Studio, now Kaufman’s Astoria Motion Picture and Television Center, was designated a landmark, as Paramount Studios Building No. 1, by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1978.

In October 1997, P.S.1 reopened to the public after a three-year renovation project by Los Angeles-based architect Frederick Fisher, including a new large outdoor gallery, a dramatic entryway, and a two-story project space.

P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) formalized their affiliation in January 2000, bringing together a leader in cutting-edge art and the world’s foremost museum of modern art.

Zenith Vertical roller mill used in the construction of cement grinding station

Divided by cement production process as cement clinker factory, grinding station and the

preparation of four types of plants. Grinding station, including: cement grinding,

homogenization and preparation of cement, cement and bulk packaging manufacturing processes

of enterprises. LM series is mainly used for a variety of vertical roller mill slag, limestone,

barite and other minerals in the milling process.

Increasingly widespread use of slag, fly ash will be used in its powder form.

Therefore, all new cement mill grinding station to be considered in the end, the former

library located slag cement (or fly ash) and slag powder library (or fly) measurement scale,

in order to match with a cement mill by “all” of post- into the cement silo. This will not

only improve the quality of cement, but also a significant increase compared with production

of cement grinding station. LM series roller mill cement grinding station core equipment in

recent years in product quality, equipment, process, technology, etc. are improved to some

extent the construction of the cement grinding station to resolve the problems.

Grinding station’s location is important, because vertical roller mill with a certain

degree of particularity and facilities, LM series of vertical roller mill manufacturers free

of charge to help users Zenith crime scene, the production process, on-site supervision of

installation and equipment operation training. Zenith vertical roller mill technical

personnel proposed to establish the general mining area near the raw materials of cement

clinker production line, in the vicinity of large and medium cities is close to the sales

market for the establishment of cement of cement grinding station, thus reducing

transportation costs. If the clinker production line built around the city, due to about 1.6

tons of clinker per tonne of raw material, we need a 60% increase in transportation costs.

Conversely, if the grinding station and clinker production lines with built near the mining

of raw materials, most of the mixed wood waste generated by the city, these hybrid materials

to be transported to the cement plant was built near the mine, the grinding into cement and

then transported to urban use, increased transportation costs. Therefore, in the grinding

station building near the city has its social and economic benefits to save transport costs.

So, in recent years, many cities around the establishment of a cement grinding station.

Roller mill cement grinding station is the main process equipment, LM series of strong

vertical roller mill crushing, crushing, high efficiency, and running stability. To a

certain extent, reduce the power consumption or increase the system output, to a certain

extent to solve cement production is low, running instability concerns. Also in the process

is concerned, relative to the closed circuit grinding mill is only open process save some

investment, maintenance and management convenience. But the closed-circuit grinding easy to

adjust, change and water quality of raw materials adaptability stronger. New grinding

station, from a number of companies to buy clinker clinker production, the clinker

grindability must be different, this time closed-circuit
grinding mill production and the fineness of

cement for easy adjustment and changes little advantage over open ground. Some recommend the

use of open-circuit grinding process of the experts believe, because the
cement mill grind open process with

closed-circuit grinding wider than the particle size distribution, and thus lower water

demand for normal consistency, concrete mixing station welcome. Choice of which method, the

cement plant can be based on the actual situation of their own choice, LM series of vertical

roller mill of the two processes are not strictly required.

In fact, the options have their pros and cons, there is not a perfect solution, the

key is when the owners to choose the goal must be clear. Select the program to be considered

advanced and mature, but also consider the quality of employees can fit. Such as the one to

save tons of cement from the lower operating costs, power consumption, the choice of the

final vertical roller mill grinding system is certainly the most advanced. On the current

level of technology, consider the grinding station has a running cost advantages and to

ensure the quality of cement, endorsed grinding station should be closed-circuit grinding

roller press + form grinding process.
