Burglengenfeld plant orders ATEC Greco burner for IKN project
Published: 15 April 2016


HeidelbergCement’s plant at Burglengenfeld, Germany, will receive an A TEC Greco kiln burner by the end of 2016. This project is part of the facility's complete modernisation, which is being carried out by IKN.

The scope of A TEC Greco’s supply includes the engineering, design and manufacturing of a tailor-made combustion system with the required peripheral systems for an efficient and reliable operation. The  axisymmetric design of the A TEC Greco burner uses three airflows to optimise the combustion process and therefore maximise alternative fuel injection. Fuels include lignite, sewage sludge, refuse-derived fuel, diesel and solvents. The burner's thermal power is 75MW.

Additionally, HeidelbergCement will achieve advanced control over NOx emissions through simple procedures. The burner operates with an outer ring whose high momentum, and therefore high exit velocity, is decisively responsible for the slim, firm flame shape. The high momentum is equivalent to the mixing zone length of the flame, which follows the ability to control the flame from the ignition point to the remaining flame length.
