The first clinker has been produced at the new cement production line at Cementos Fortaleza’s Tula plant in Mexico, following the commissioning of the FCB Kiln from French engineering group, Fives, in June.
In addition to the FCB Kiln, the new pyroprocessing line includes a FCB Zero-NOx Prece, FCB Preheater and Pillard NovaFlam burner. The new line will have a production capacity of 3300 tpd.
The successful start up of clinker production follows the commissioning of two cement grinding plants equipped with FCB Horomills in December 2016 and January 2017, as well as the commissioning of an FCB Horomill for raw meal grinding in June 2017.
An FCB B-mill will also be installed for petcoke grinding.
Cementos Fortaleza operates three cement plants in Mexico: the Palmar and Vito plants, as well as the Tula plant.
