Industry-leading innovation

FLSmidth Airtech leads the industry in research and development investment. We work hard to continuously meet and exceed local environmental regulations with the most cost effective solutions for specific customer needs.

 

In the early years, our efforts have concentrated on removing dust particles. With our new technologies, such as the development of our catalytic filter solutions, we are now also able to remove heavy metals, NH3, NOx and a range of organic gaseous compounds. This makes our systems an important part of a cleaner and more sustainable future.

 

Our R&D department developnew technologies and improve existing ones in collaboration with universities and customers around the world. This allows us to respond quickly to both customer requests and environmental legislation. To ensure long lifetime for parts and components and to keep costs of replacement parts to a minimum, we also conduct extensive stress and wear testing of our equipment.

Because we have everything under the same roof, the time from idea to action is very short. We are among the first to come up with new ideas and strategies such as development of the GSA and catalytic filter solutions.

life time of support

FLSmidth Airtech provides a broad range of services, from maintenance and training to spare parts acquisition and help with operations on site. We believe that the perfect project is built on a foundation of good relations.

 

Our services teams are committed to helping our customers maintain efficient plant operations throughout the lifetime of their equipment. With a combination of know-how and cost-effective customised solutions, we look at each case individually and find the best solutions for specific needs.Our approach is to work with our customers to develop a preventative maintenance program. This will increase the time between maintenance stoppages and reduce the frequency of purchasing replacement parts.

 

We provide expert advice through a unique global network of Airtech experts and local customer service contacts.In more and more countries, our customer service is based on an effective mix of highly experienced supervisors who know the importance of fast decisions,and expert local field engineers who can act on those decisions quickly. A growing number of local service teams worldwide enable us to respond rapidly when we are needed.

 

Highlights from a few of our projects

Our environmental systems at the Norcem Brevik cement plant near Oslo, Norway, reduced the annual emissions of acid gases by the equivalent of one litre of concentrated sulphuric acid for each of Oslo's 600,000 inhabitants.

 

At the St. Genevieve cement plantan FLSmidth-supplied US facility with the world's largest cement linethe surface area of the plant’s bag filter is equivalent to the area of nearly five soccer fields.

 

For a pelletising plant in Swedenwe installed three new ESPs and reduced emissions to less than 1 mg/Nm3.

 

FabriClean® filter including long filter bag technology installed with zero downtime at a cement plant in India reduced the plant's emissionto less than 2 mg/Nm3.
