KHD receives order from Askale Cimento
Askale Cimento has placed an order with KHD for engineering and equipment supply for its new 3,500-tonne per day (tpd) clinker production line at Van cement plant in the East Anatolian region of Turkey. Under a contract with Terbay-Aybars Is Ortakligi as general contractor, KHD received the order for engineering, equipment supply and supervision of erection and commissioning including onshore training.
The new kiln line I with similar design as kiln line II at AskaleŽs Erzurum cement plant, which was awarded to KHD in 2006 and has been in operation since the end of 2007, will be erected near the existing line I with a capacity of 850 tpd clinker.
Core components with KHD's design are: 5-stage Humboldt preheater with Pyroclon®R calciner equipped with Pyrotop®compact mixing chamber and tertiary air duct with dust settling chamber, Pyrobox calciner firing system for coal dust, Pyrorapid® two-tyre rotary kiln with 4.6 m dia x 54 m long, Pyro-jet® kiln burner for coal and fuel oil, and Pyrofloor® clinker cooler equipped with a hammer-type clinker crusher and controlled by PFC control system.
The new cooler will be the third Pyrofloor® system installed at Askale Cimento cement plants in Turkey. Commissioning of the plant is scheduled for 2012 summer.
