Our Client: SCHB, a subsidiary of Groupe Industriel des Ciments d’Algérie, one of the largest cement producers in North Africa.
Our Gas-to-Air Heat Exchanger offered a limited footprint while minimizing losses in pressure, and our Bag Filters reduced the consumption of compressed air by up to 40%.
Our Contract: To find a cost-efficient retrofit solution to the existing air filtration equipment on two clinker cooler lines.
Our Challenge: Our team, as well as our customer, had hoped to use the existing equipment’s structure for the new system. However upon inspection, our experts deemed that it was not structurally sound. In the end, our engineers designed a new foundation and structure to carry the additional weight load.
Our Solution: On each of the clinker cooler lines we designed, engineered and manufactured a new Gas-to-Air RF-Model Heat Exchanger, which minimizes losses of pressure, while limiting the heat exchanger’s footprint. We installed the HEs upstream of new DPD-Model Bag Filters (baghouses) which, thanks to our Bi-Jet Bag Cleaning System, reduce the system’s consumption of compressed air by up to 40%.
