Case story: Ramliya

Arabian Cement Company in Ramliya, Egypt, had an SF Cross-Bar® Cooler that already exceeded its performance guarantees. They wanted to increase capacity even further beyond the equipment's intended limits. FLSmidth’s R&D staff surveyed the cooler and suggested a simple upgrade that gives increased clinker transport efficiency, allowing greater throughput and more control of the clinker bed under heavily loaded conditions – all with fewer wear parts. The upgrade was achieved with the majority of the SF cooler untouched. Essentially, it required only a change in cross bars and the hydraulic system. The upgrade took place during the plant’s normal  maintenance stop, and no heavy equipment was needed  to carry out the changes. Following the upgrade, production increased from  approximately 6,200 tpd to roughly 6,800 tpd, while  helping sustain the good process performance with the increased production.
