Vietnam is the world’s fifth largest cement producer and second-largest cement exporter, and leading producer Xuan Thanh Cement sees exponential growth in the years ahead. FLSmidth supplied the main pyroprocessing line for Xuan Thanh’s new 12,500tpd kiln line, part of a US$700 million plant that is part of select club of mega kilns installed worldwide.
The preheater of the Xuan Thanh Cement plant in Ha Nam province consists of five cyclone stages in a two-string arrangement that features FLSmidth’s In-Line Calciner (ILC). This proven design ensures low NOx and CO emissions, allowing Xuan Thanh to meet local environmental emissions regulations. The plant will consume approximately 2400tpd of coal, its primary kiln fuel, which is prepared by two ATOX® 32.5 vertical roller mills and fed to the kiln, where it is burnt using a FLSmidth Duoflex® Burner. The pyro line is completed by the inclusion of an FLSmidth Cross-Bar® Cooler (22x74) installed in front of the 100,000t clinker silo.
