Pavilion Technologies announced that Ash Grove Cement Co. will deploy Pavilion’s cement control solution on a single dry kiln at its Durkee, Oregon, in the USA.

Currently, Ash Grove Cement operates nine plants in the US and produces more than 7.8Mt of cement annually. This award marks Pavilion’s 43rd control project in the cement, metals and minerals industry, the company says.

“We were looking to upgrade our existing high level control system at Durkee and turned to Pavilion to be our control solution provider because of their reputation in the industry for consistently delivering results that support cement manufacturers’ business operating objectives, while providing a low cost of ownership,” says Mike Hrizuk, Ash Grove’s Western Division vice president of manufacturing.
