FLSmidth has received its first order for a HOTDISC on the Indian market. The order, along with an alternative fuel feeding system, has been placed by Vasavadatta Cements for unit 3 at its Sedam facility and marks an important order for FLSmidth, as this HOTDISC project will be the first of its kind in India.
At Vasavadatta Cements' unit 3, the low NOx inline calciner kiln system, also supplied by FLSmidth, already has provision for the installation. The HOTDISC is a safe, simple and effective combustion device that maximises the substitution of fossil fuels by alternative fuels in a controlled and environmentally sound manner.
The system to be supplied by consists of the latest generation HOTDISC with a triple flap sluice, as well as a complete receiving, storage, dosing and transportation system for shredded and whole tyres. A specially designed feeder system, along with belt conveyors, will be supplied for handling and transporting both shredded and whole tyres simultaneously.
This system will enable Vasavadatta Cements to feed 3.5 tph of tyres and replace approximately 30% of the coal fired in the calciner with alternative fuels.
