High-moisture fuel transport, no problem with teamwork

Up to 60% high-moisture fuel substitution at Monarch Cement

Monarch case

Case story: Monarch plant

Monarch Cement needed assistance in increasing the substitution rates of a challenging fuel: high-moisture petroleum coke. The fuel’s 50% moisture content made it difficult to handle and transport. The fuel needed grinding prior to firing in a kiln or calciner. It was agreed to dose the high-moisture petroleum coke with a FLS Pipe Conveyor to the existing vertical coal mill. The pipe conveyor is a fully enclosed conveyor system that allows spillage-free conveyance of material, thereby reducing maintenance costs. Today Monarch Cement substitutes up to 60% of its fuel with the high-moisture fuel. The system delivers the material to the coal mill at the rate the customer needs to have a very short payback.
