Chilamkur case


Case story: Chilamkur plant

The Indian Chilamkur plant wanted to increase capacity from 3,400 to 4,500 tpd in the most economical manner possible. Rather than replacing the existing preheater with a new, higher capacity tower, FLSmidth recommended installing a balancing tower, thereby utilising the existing preheater as well. All guaranteed performance parameters were achieved such as 1,700 tpd production from the balancing tower and 15 tph for the coal mill. By reusing existing equipment from a competitor and inserting FLSmidth technology in parallel, the plant got an innovative solution that increased capacity by 35 %.
