"We are very pleased with the final realization of Ingeteam's quality main drive technology and Ingeteam's punctual and budget optimized project delivery."
In December 2012, Ingeteam received an order from Scheuch, Austria, to supply the main drive package composed of: Line phase-shift rectifier transformer + frequency converter + motor, (ELIN make) to drive the kiln exhaust Induced Draft (ID) fan for INVECEM, Venezuela (former Holcim), in the frame of the expansion phase II of the Puerto Cumarebo Plant aimed at increasing the clinker production up to 4200 t.p.d.
Production of clinker generates exhaust gases that exit from the cold end of a rotary kiln. The solids leaving a cement kiln system in suspension in the exhaust gases are called cement kiln dust (CKD) – typically 30 grams per cubic meter-. By use of a fan (extractor), these particles evolved by the raw materials, are drawn out of the rotary kiln and collected for its treatment. Particles are captured by means of such extractors, which flow is efficiently controlled with a frequency converter which controls the motor and coupled fan.
