With a new product series of burners for outputs of 160 kW to 13 MW, Loesche ThermoProzess GmbH (LTP) from Gelsenkirchen/Germany has its own compact device for industrial applications. With an integrated combustion air fan and burner control system, LTP thereby supplements its existing burner product range for the process and heavy industry sector with a practical, tested component.
The product series has been developed in cooperation with CIB Unigas, headquartered in Campodarsego near Padova/Italy. The aim of the collaboration was to be able to offer a product for use in thermal plants such as hot gas generators, boilers and process plants of any kind, within the Loesche Group and for our customers worldwide. The burners are always delivered fitted to a plant part and in the mother company’s design as an LTP product. As quality and availability for global use are features of the product, the new burner series does not simply include a gas burner, but also burners for liquid fuels (light and heavy oils) and dual-fuel burners, which are equipped for both kinds of fuel per burner.
With the modular structure of the systems, an individual adjustment can be made with regard to the burner media, the fitting trains and the burners themselves depending on use and/or ambient conditions. In this way, the burners can be used for applications in the temperature range from - 40 to + 40 °C. This flexibility and the distinguished product features correspondingly may attract great interest from end customers and plant manufacturers in the material, metal and process industry.
Among others, the following grinding plants are equipped with the new burner:
Indonesia: Citeureup P14 clinker, firing of a LOMA® hot gas generator with industrial diesel oil
Indonesia: Baturaja clinker, firing of a LOMA® hot gas generator with light oil
Vietnam: Xuan Thanh, firing of a LOMA® hot gas generator with industrial diesel oil
Comprehensive customer services with fast and personal support in the pre- and after-sales department are important for reliable operation. LTP therefore has expanded its range of services in parallel with the burner development. The company’s engineers are thus available worldwide for commissioning, monitoring and optimisation tasks, for example in China, India, the Ukraine, Romania or Algeria. At the same time, LTP is also supported by various partner companies and subsidiaries in South America, the Middle East, Asia, Russia, Australia as well as New Zealand and their engineers.
The subject of measuring, open-loop and closed-loop control engineering as well as the communication of the components with such things as process control systems is becoming more and more important, as are increasing security requirements or local requirements. The new burner series can also take these demands into consideration by carrying out the implementation of our control engineering and programming, the switching cabinet design and the assembly in collaboration with LTP’s sister company Loesche Automation LAG.
