Kiln specifications are as follows:

  • 2200 tpd (supplied by A TEC).
  • 3.6 m dia., 45.5 m long.
  • Preheater tower with 1 string/5 stages.
  • Calcinator with tertiary air pipe.
  • Grid cooler (CemProTec).

The commissioning of the kiln is due to take place in October. Powitec will support the work from beginning with its software solution in the form of data mining (significance analysis), modelling, analysis of disturbance variables, scoring, etc. for a quick startup of the kiln.

After the calciner startup, the kiln and cooler will be transferred to full automatic control (PiT Navigator).
