Pavilion Technologies, a world leader in advanced process control (APC) has been selected by Dyckerhoff AG to implement kiln and mill Advanced Process Control (APC) solutions across several sites in Europe. Pavilion’s APC solutions will enable Dyckerhoff to stabilise production while further increasing the company’s use of alternative fuels, consistently reducing operating costs, and supporting the company’s culture of continuous improvement.
As part of Pavilion’s ValueFirst program, Dyckerhoff piloted an initial kiln project at the company’s site in Lengerich, Germany. The company chose to address an important issue for many cement manufacturers – reliable and increased use of alternative fuels without compromising production performance goals. The initial solution controlled a precalciner that handled three different fuels.
