KHD wins Turkish pyroprocessing contract

World Cement,

KHD Humboldt Wedag has been awarded a contract with LIMAK Bati Group comprising a clinker production line for the Trakya cement plant in Turkey. The core components for the 3500 tpd plant include:

  • 4-stage KHD preheater with PYROCLON®-R Low NOx calciner, equipped with PYROTOP® compact mixing chamber, tertiary air duct with dust settling chamber, and PYROBOX calciner firing system for coal dust.
  • PYRORAPID® two-tyre rotary kiln, with a diameter of 4.4 m.
  • PYRO-JET® kiln burner for coal and fuel oil.
  • PYROFLOOR® clinker cooler equipped with a PYROCRUSHER® System.

In addition to equipment supply and engineering, KHD will also be responsible for the supervision of erection and commissioning, including on-site training. The new calciner with PYROCLON®R will be KHD’s first Low-NOx calciner in Turkey. The PYROFLOOR® order marks the second for LIMAK, which already has one in place in the Sanliurfa cement plant.

Commissioning of the new line, which will be located near the existing 1850 tpd line, is scheduled for autumn 2014. The existing line will be upgraded by KHD in 2014.
