Cemmac orders a PiT Navigator, Slovakia
Published: 28 November 2007

Cemmac a. s., a cement producer in the Slovak Republic and member of the Austrian Asamer – Group has placed an order for a PiT Navigator from Powitec.
The Cemmac plant was built in the year 2000 with a clinker production capacity of 1200 tons per day. The plant is equipped with a 5-stage cyclone calciner and a grid cooler. The rather short kiln has a diameter of 3.4 m and a length of 46 m. Landscape circumstances determined the kiln length. Due to the disadvantageous L/D ratio the process has predispositions to various operation difficulties.
Cemmac thus decided to buy an optimization system to support a smooth process at constant clinker quality. Further optimization targets are:
-       Higher production rate
-       Increased use of alternative fuels
-       Reduced emissions
