Asia Cement Company Ltd (Korea) of South Korea has awarded KHD Humbold Wedag with a supply and engineering contract for the modernisation of its third clinker production line located close to Jecheon-si, Korea.

During the project, the existing preheater will be modernised with the installation of new PYROCLON R® calciner, as well as a PYROROTOTR®, a state-of-the-art rotary combustion reactor for low-processed alternative fuel.

The overall projet scope consists of the following equipment and upgrades:
    •    PYROCLON R calciner with PYROTOP® mixing chamber
    •    PYROROTOR alternative fuel combustion reactor
    •    PYROBOX® coal firing system for process start-up and operation balancing
    •    Replacement of stage five cyclones with new high-efficiency cyclones for calciner connection and               an overall pressure drop reduction
    •    Bypass mixing chamber installation
    •    A new kiln inlet chamber with orifice.
