Replacing filter bags on demand may seem like a convenient way of managing maintenance costs. But waiting to replace bags at the point of failure, or just before, can lead to a greater risk of non-compliance with emissions standards, higher costs, and higher overall emissions levels. So why are some cement producers opting for partial replacement over full?
When it became crystal clear that Asia Cement’s Pukrang Plant, in Saraburi Province, Thailand was going to need to upgrade its control system, the plant found the best available automation system on the market, discovering that it was the most cost-friendly choice, too.
Thanks to the FLSmidth KilnLoq® gas analysis solution and ReportLoq™ data reporting system, Faxe Kalk has full control over kiln fuel consumption, allowing the company to reduce NOx emissions, improve daily operations, and reduce maintenance requirements.
