OAO Mordowzement in Komsomolski, Republic of Mordowia, Russia, has placed an order with the KHD Humboldt Wedag AG, Cologne, and its subsidiary, ZAB-Industrietechnik & Service GmbH in Dessau, for a new kiln line with a capacity of 2300tpd of clinker, based on the semi-wet process.
OAO Mordowzement is a significant cement producer in Russia. The new line will be set up in the Staroalexjeewskij cement production plant adjacent to the already existing four kiln lines.
The semi-wet process of KHD Humboldt Wedag is said to combine the utilisation of the available cement raw slurry capacities with the most modern technology of the drying process after the raw material feed to the preheater.
The optimal integration of the existing cement raw slurry processing system and the existing store and grinding section for clinker offers decisive advantages such as: reduced realisation times, € relatively low investment costs and largely unrestricted continuation of production during the construction phase.
Finally, the heat consumption of 3559kJ/kg or 850kcal/kg of clinker is almost half of the existing wet kiln line. Clinker production is scheduled to start in 2006.
