Holcim (Argentina) SA has placed an order for a state-of-the-art IKN Pendulum Cooler® with a grate area of 61m² and latest Coanda Wing® technology, designed to replace the existing drum cooler at Puesto Viejo, Argentina.

The new clinker cooler will be single-stage with a single hydraulic cylinder drive located under the IKN Clinker Inlet Distribution System (KIDS®) including a Clinker Flow Optimiser (CFO) and an IKN Roll Crusher with four rolls at the cold end.

Included in IKN's scope of supply is a new pan conveyor to bridge the distance between the clinker discharge of the new cooler and the existing clinker conveyors plus a new electrostatic precipitator including dust emission control and the corresponding exhaust fan.
