Designed to reduce power consumption and maintenance costs
Cooler grate delivers a fast return on your investment
Get hassle-free grate maintenance and reduce your annual operating and maintenance costs. Wave Grates, in comparison to the original grate design, typically result in a return on investment in less than one year.
Want to reduce cooler-fan power consumption? The Wave Grate design reduces airflow resistance through the grate, which results in a reduction in pressure drop. This significantly reduces power consumption. For example, you could save up to 0.5 kWh/t if you modify all your cooler grates.
Help for over-stretched coolers
Are you stretching your cooler above its designed capacity? As an alternative option to saving power, you can use the reduced pressure drop to increase the cooling airflow in a heavily loaded cooler, with the potential to increase heat recuperation efficiency and reduce clinker exit temperature
Spend less time and money on maintenance
Reduce the operating and maintenance costs of your coolers
- Reduce power consumption
- The pressure drop across grates is drastically decreased due to reduced airflow resistance, resulting in significant power consumption savings of cooler fans. Industrial test results show approximately an 8% reduction in total pressure drop, providing up to 0.5 kWh/t reduced power consumption of cooler fans when modifying all of the cooler grates.
- Increase grate wear lifetime
- The upper Wave Grate is the only wear part that needs replacement and it has wear strips giving it an expected lifetime of more than five years.
- Easy to maintain
- To change the upper Wave Grate, you only have to access the bolts from above the cooler grate line. This advantage significantly reduces your maintenance costs and saves time
Two-part cooler grate designed specifically to meet your needs
Two-part wave design
The design of the cooler grate for the SF™ Cross-Bar® cooler and for the Multi-Movable Cross-Bar® cooler is in two parts and shaped like a wave. This means that the airflow is only deflected by 135 degrees, making it move in a wave pattern and reducing the internal flow resistance and thereby lowering the pressure drop. The reduced airflow resistance and resulting decreased pressure drop across grates gives you significant savings on your cooler-fan power consumption.
Quick access to the grate
With the original cooler grate, it is not possible to open and clean the grate because it is a single piece. And to change the original grate, you need access from both above and below the grate line. These issues are resolved with the new cooler grate. To remove the upper Wave Grate, you simply access the bolts from above the cooler grate line. This means cleaning and maintenance tasks can be done quickly and easily.
Wear strips to increase wear lifetime
The wear strips on the upper Wave Grate increase the wear lifetime to >5 years, further reducing maintenance costs. Because these wear strips typically do not wear evenly over time, the upper Wave Grate can also be rotated 180 degrees to extend the wear before replacement is needed.
