600 tpd PFR Kiln with 20% electric energy savings

We are happy to inform you about a new order for a state-of-the-art 600 tpd Maerz PFR lime kiln in Tarma, Peru, awarded by the local cement producer UNACEM. Together with the CALIDRA group from Mexico, UNACEM will build and operate the kiln.

Thanks to innovative airtight sealed charging and discharging systems the kiln is not only ready for future CO2 capture technologies, but also will significantly save electric energy by up to 20% compared to conventional rotary piston blowers by using high-pressure fans to provide the process air.

Detailed planning is underway and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Maerz’ scope of supply will be the petroleum coke firing system, skip winch, charging and discharging systems, high-pressure fans, hydraulic unit and control system. According to the schedule, commissioning should take place in the first half of 2025.

Do you have any suggestions on the topic or want to know more? I look forward to hearing from you.
