KHD’s activity in the Turkish market is continuing to produce positive results, with an order for a new 3,500 t/d clinker production line at the Bolu Cimento’s Kazan plant and successfully completed recent performance test for KCS Kahramanmaras Cimento’s Maras Kiln Line II.
The Oyak Group awarded KHD an order for a new 3500 t/d clinker production line at the Bolu Cimento’s Kazan plant, located near Ankara, Turkey. The contract awards KHD the order for engineering, equipment supply, as well as advisory services for erection and commissioning. Core KHD equipment to be supplied for the pyroprocessing system include a 5-stage KHD preheater with PYROCLON®-R LowNOX calciner, equipped with PYROTOP® compact mixing chamber, tertiary air duct with dust settling chamber, PYROBOX® calciner firing system for coal dust, PYRORAPID® two-tire rotary kiln, with a diameter of 4.4 m, PYRO-JET® kiln burner for petcoke and PYROFLOOR® clinker cooler equipped with a PYROCRUSHER® System. The new kiln line will be erected next to the existing cement grinding unit and commissioning is scheduled for the spring of 2015.
The recently commissioned KCS Kahramanmaras Cimento’s Maras Kiln Line II was installed next to the existing Maras I Line, which was also installed by KHD. The new line, for which KHD has supplied the main equipment and state-of-the-art KHD technology for alternative fuel firing, produced impressive results at its recent performance test.
The test was conducted using a mixture of approximately 40 % petcoke and 60 % lignite (of the same quality and fineness) for the main burner and calciner burner. www.khd.com
