Lafarge Malaysia invests in new baghouse
31 August 2018

Lafarge Malaysia Bhd has installed a new MYR20m (US$4.8m) baghouse at its Kanthan cement plant following the installation of a MYR180m vertical roller mill in 2016. The new baghouse replaces the old electrostatic precipitator to reduce dust emissions at the plant.

"The bag filter is cleaned at pre-programmed intervals and the dust particles are channeled into hoppers to be recirculated into the kiln process for efficient material utilisation, said Lafarge Malaysia.

The upgrade at the Kanthan, Perak, plant is part of a MYR80m modernisation programme across the company's three integrated cement plants in Malaysia to improve efficiency and control dust emissions.
