Published: 25 September 2013


The LIMAK Bati Group has placed an order with KHD Humboldt Wedag for a new 3500tpd line at its Trakya cement plant, near the town of Pinarhisar, in the Thracian region of Turkey.

The KHD contract includes engineering, equipment supply, and supervision of erection and commissioning, including on-site training.

The new kiln line will be erected near the existing 1850tpd line, which will also be upgraded by KHD in the beginning of 2014.

The core components of KHD’s new line are:
• four-stage KHD Preheater with PYROCLON®-R Low NOx calciner, equipped with PYROTOP® compact mixing chamber, tertiary air duct with dust settling chamber, and PYROBOX calciner firing system for coal dust
• PYRORAPID® two-tyre rotary kiln, with a diameter of 4.4m
• PYRO-JET® kiln burner for coal and fuel oil
• PYROFLOOR® clinker cooler equipped with a PYROCRUSHER® system.

The new calciner with PYROCLON®R will be KHD’s first Low-NOx calciner in Turkey. LIMAK will install its second PYROFLOOR® system (the first being at its Sanliurfa plant) to this new wroks in Trakya.

Commissioning is scheduled for the autumn of 2014.
