Our Client: Holcim, one of the world’s leading suppliers of cement and aggregates.
We successfully used the existing support structure to lower costs. Our air filtration solution drastically reduced the average dust concentration to 3-7 mg/Nm3.
Our Contract: The plant, under Holcim’s Geocycle brand name in Vietnam, was designed to facilitate the co-processing of waste materials – everything from footwear to agricultural wastes – in its cement kilns. Co-processing practices and new technology developments meant that the 10-year-old electrostatic precipitator (ESP) needed to be replaced with the lowest-cost yet effective air filtration solution – ideally using existing equipment.
Our Challenge: Unlike other retrofits we do, we had to demolish the exterior casings as well as the internal components as they were in bad condition.
Our Solution: We successfully installed our new Bag Filter solution using the existing supporting structure, which was more cost-effective for our customer than a complete replacement. Redecam’s new Bag Filter provided an enormous improvement in performance, reducing the average dust concentration from 40-50 mg/Nm3 with the old ESP to 3-7 mg/Nm3.
