Upgrade with fuel substitution solution

Upgraded preheater and HOTDISC™ at Anhovo

Anhovo case

Case story: Salonit Anhovo cement plant

As part of a 10-year reconstruction plan, Salonit Anhovo wanted to upgrade and modernise its plant, which at that time was a traditional suspension preheater kiln with a planetary cooler. Greater operating reliability, energy efficiency and high environmental standards were important objectives for Anhovo. In the first phase, FLSmidth provided a new Cross-Bar™ cooler supplying the calciner with hot tertiary air. In the second phase, an ILC preheater with a calciner suitable for alternative fuel and a HOTDISC™ was installed. Today, kiln output has increased from 2,100 tpd prior to the upgrade to 3,500 tpd and the HOTDISC™ has achieved fuel substitution with more than 5 tph of whole tyres.
