FLSmidth was selected to supply the major equipment pieces needed as Holcim (US) looks to modernize its Ada, Okla., plant. The modernization of the pyro process is expected to deliver lower emissions of nearly all air pollutants while anticipating an increase in the plant’s capacity.
The contract includes a dryer crusher, a single-stage preheater with an ILC-calciner, a dedusting cyclone, a Rotax-2 kiln, a kiln bypass system, a Duoflex kiln burner and an FLSmidth Cross-Bar cooler.
With the installation of two new FLSmidth dust collectors, the project will significantly improve the plant’s ability to reduce the particulate emissions.
The partnership further demonstrates FLSmidth’s ability to help U.S. cement producers prepare for the upcoming NESHAP regulations, noted the company in a press release.
