Detect potential risks before they become a problem
Staying cool with preventative maintenance services
It’s essential to bring red-hot clinker down to manageable temperatures. The clinker-cooler is working constantly for your plant and preventative maintenance is vital to keep availability high. You need to avoid excessive wear on components, and have the right spare parts on hand for planned maintenance.
What we offer
Maximise cooler availability and eliminate excessive wear
To maintain overall plant capacity, your cooler must handle a constant throughput of clinker. Problems with the cooler can result in an unstable kiln, damage equipment, and influence the clinker quality. And excessive wear of cooler parts can lead to inefficient cooling processes and even production stoppages.
A regular preventative inspection can eliminate many of the root causes of excessive wear and keep your cooler running smoothly. As well as inspections, our on-site cooler services include: installation, repairs and refurbishments, and upgrades and overhauls.
Is your cooler always ‘all systems go’?
A complete cooler analysis can help you reduce downtime and keep production levels high. A problem detected in one area can have its root cause in another.
Using the latest fault-finding technologies, such as electronic data loggers and thermal cameras, we analyse each individual element in depth.
We work with you to identify and eliminate root causes, helping you to avoid:
Excessive wear on the grate line and under-grate compartments
Hydraulic system issues
Reduced heat recuperation
Inspections are carried out in two stages:
Stage 1: Before shutdown, to evaluate operating parameters
Stage 2: After kiln stop, to assess the cooler’s parts
The inspection service includes:
Hydraulic and lubrication systems
Test of hydraulic pumps
Oil contamination check
Process analysis of cooler operational parameters
We give you with a detailed measuring report and a general evaluation of the equipment and spare parts. We recommend actions to take during a scheduled maintenance stop and suggest ways you can optimise the cooler.
Maintenance to improve cooler performance includes:
Replacing the seal packing
Adjusting seal plates
Ensuring air tightness
Hassle-free cooler installation with a fast turnaround
Getting your cooler installed is easy. You can rely on us to install and align all equipment parts, from linear bearings, drives and cylinders to frames and the fixed inlet. Our installation services include the delivery and replacement of complete units or specific parts, as necessary, and we supply all the required equipment for on-site maintenance.
And after installation, we won’t just leave you to it. We’ll continue to assist you with commissioning your cooler equipment. The scope of our cooler installation services includes a range of wear parts:
No snowmen here: upgrades to increase cooler output
When you want to increase your cooler’s output and efficiency, we can help you with a range of upgrade solutions, such as:
Installing fixed ABC™ inlets to eliminate snowman formation
Fixed inlet upgrade (CIS to ABC)
SF™ to Cross-Bar® cooler upgrade for improved transport efficiency
Cooler extensions to increase capacity
Upgrading the cooler control system
Overhaul and upgrades of the crusher and hydraulic roller breaker
To maximise the performance of hydraulic components and lengthen system lifetime, our specialists can overhaul your hydraulic pumps and cylinders and flush your hydraulic systems. After a complete cooler overhaul, to ensure the best possible start to your operations, we’ll stay on-site and assist in adjusting operational parameters.
