Holcim (Argentina) S.A. has placed an order for a state-of-the-art IKN Pendulum Cooler® with a grate area of 61 m² and the latest Coanda Wing® technology, designed to replace the existing drum cooler at Puesto Viejo, Argentina. The new clinker cooler will be single stage with a single hydraulic cylinder drive located under the IKN Clinker Inlet Distribution System (KIDS®), including a Clinker Flow Optimiser (CFO) and an IKN Roll Crusher with four rolls at the cold end.
Included in the scope of supply is a new pan conveyor to bridge the distance between the clinker discharge of the new cooler and the existing clinker conveyors plus a new electrostatic precipitator including dust emission control and the corresponding exhaust fan. The order was placed in May 2014.
