Redecam offers highly engineered air pollution control solutions for the Cement & Lime, Metals & Mining, Coal & Oil Power, Waste-to-Energy & Biomass Power and Biomass & Pulp and Paper industries, helping customers meet or exceed their air emission reduction targets in a rapid and cost-effective manner. Our track record is strong with over 2,000 projects in nearly 90 countries and on every continent.

Here are a few of our projects in Australia:

Cockburn Cement, Munster Plant

Cockburn Cement, Munster Plant

Our Client: Cockburn Cement, a major producer of cement and the only producer of lime in Western Australia.

Country: Australia

Our installed turnkey air filtration solutions, including a Bag Filter and Double-Passage Heat Exchanger, have exceeded expectations, maintaining emissions around 3 mg/m3.

Our Contract: Find highly efficient emission reduction solutions for kilns 5 and 6 at the Munster Plant, which produce 100% of the quicklime in Western Australia.

Our Challenge: With the community surrounding their Munster plant growing, Cockburn Cement has become highly engaged in the community to keep pace with people’s needs. The company was looking to replace their existing electrostatic precipitators and to promote their commitment to sustainability with their new air filtration solution.

Our Solution: We provided a turnkey solution, designing, manufacturing and supervising the on-site installation of DPD-Model Bag Filters (baghouses) for kilns 5 and 6. We turned off the water sprays on kiln 6, which had anecdotally been identified as contributing to odour in the area, and added our large Double-Passage Gas-to-Air Heat Exchangers on both kilns. Both air filtration solutions have exceeded expectations: Cockburn Cement publishes a live emissions feed for each kiln on its website (updated every 20 minutes) and has had emissions around 3 mg/m3 since the kilns’ commissioning.

Cement Australia – Port Kembla

Cement Australia – Port Kembla

Our Client: Cement Australia, owned by Holcim (50%) and HeidelbergCement subsidiary Hanson (50%).

Country: Australia

Nothing less than the highest efficacy solution was needed for this highly publicized project. We delivered quickly and committed to always having spare parts available on short notice.

Our Contract: Install an air filtration solution for this new 1.1 million ton cement grinding mill which will be the largest single cement-grinding mill in Australia, producing both cement and ground granulated blast furnace slag.

Our Challenge: Our customer had high expectations from its suppliers and Australia has specific requirements regarding cement plants. We faced (and met) short delivery times, the need to transport all parts in preassembled condition and the requirement to make critical spare parts available on short notice. We had no issues meeting these challenges – our turnaround time is possibly the shortest in the business, we often preassemble our systems and Redecam spare parts are always available on short notice.

Our Solution: We designed a high efficiency very large DPM-Model Bag Filter for the plant’s mill and separator and supervised installation. Cement Australia has committed that this mill use the world’s best practices to efficiently reduce energy consumption. It has also pledged air quality and emission monitoring on its website, undertaken regularly. Our solution, therefore, had to attain the highest efficiency and efficacy standards possible.

Cement Australia – Gladstone (Queensland Cement)

Cement Australia – Gladstone (Queensland Cement)

Our Client: Cement Australia, owned by Holcim (50%) and HeidelbergCement subsidiary Hanson (50%).

Country: Australia

This plant’s clinker cooler is now considered the most energy efficient in the industry thanks to our Heat Exchanger and Bag Filter combo.

Our Contract: This plant, Australia’s largest cement plant with a production capacity of over 1.7 million tonnes of cement per annum, has been a customer since 1994. Over the years, Redecam has provided several air filtration solutions to this plant which employs the most energy efficient and environmentally sound methods of manufacturing cement and lime. Actually, Cement Australia was the first to introduce bag filters to Australia, resulting in a large reduction of dust emissions.

Our Solution: Our first project with Cement Australia at Gladstone was to design, manufacture and install a large Gas Conditioning Tower (25 m or 82 ft high) to cool the gases before reaching the new Bag Filter we installed on the cement kiln and raw mill. A few years later we returned to install one of our Gas-to-Air Heat Exchangers as well as a high efficiency DPD-Model Bag Filter on the clinker cooler. We have since added a Bag Filter for coal mill dedusting as well as several nuisance filters. Most recently, we returned to install a new Gas-to-Air Heat Exchanger and another high efficiency DPD-Model Bag Filter on the other mill’s clinker cooler. The plant’s clinker cooler is considered the most energy efficient in the industry because of its heat recuperation capabilities (Cement Australia website).
