CTP Team awarded project for air pollution control in Malaysia

Published by
World Cement,

CTP Team has been awarded a turnkey project for air pollution control in Malaysia. The project consists of the conversion of an existing PL1 raw mill electrostatic precipitator (ESP) to a fabric filter and the upgrade of an existing exhaust fan.

The company has signed the turnkey project with YTL Cement for the Perak-Hanjoong Simen cement plant in Pedang Rengas, Malaysia.

The project consists of a full turnkey solution for the conversion of the existing ESP into a more efficient bag filter. The existing ESP is a 740 000 m3/hour unit, installed downstream of the kiln and raw mills on line one. The conversion will abide by the current footprint on foundations, with the minimum impact on steel structures, ducting, and dust transport system. With the new filter, emissions limits will be reduced to below 10 mg/Nm3 by June 2019. The target is to meet the government requirement for the control of dust emissions in a short period of time, in order to drive the cement plant to a safe and competitive position.

As part of an environmentally friendly strategy, the aim is to reduce dust emissions well below the limits imposed by the local regulation. The unit will be equipped with CTP Team’s advanced cleaning system with low pressure air, SWAP technology. The system reduces pressure with minimum consumption of compressed air and further benefit to OPEX for the operator.
