CTP Sinto America receives Holcim (US) order
Published: 03 July 2015

CTP Sinto America entered into a contract with Holcim (US) Inc to supply air pollution control equipment for reduction of emissions from one of the cement kilns at its Midlothian facility. In this  project, exhaust gases from the main baghouse and coal mill baghouse are combined and sent to the new system and then directed to the existing wet scrubber.

The project scope includes supply and installation of a CTP Model AutoTherm6-4200 designed to handle 420,000Nm3/h of gas, and duct modifications required to route the gas to the RTO and return it to the exhaust. CTP Sinto America will provide engineering, manufacturing, project management, field operations, installation and commissioning. Controls will be integrated into Holcim’s existing plant-wide DCS. The system will be ready for operation in 2016.

The RTO will be manufactured at SandMold Systems in Newaygo, Michigan with some specialty parts manufactured at CTP facilities in Austria. SandMold Systems, a Sinto America company, is well known for providing large scale industrial equipment and complete plant systems to the mineral processing industry in the US, Canada and Mexico. They are affiliated with CTP Sinto America through Sinto America Inc.

More stringent regulations based on National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants in the US require compliance by many cement manufacturers.
