New exchanger for cement industry

Rueil-Malmaison, August 17, 2014

AIT Group has been awarded an order for new heat exchange equipment from one of the leading companies in the cement industry. 

The installation will recover heat from gas in a clinker cooler, which will be used to feed an ORC system

This procedure generates hot air (300°C) which is presently released into the atmosphere (following gas treatment). The client wishes to use the energy contained in the air to preheat a fluid loop (water or hot air). 

The nature of this fluid can be modified according to the phases of the project. 

Phase 1 :

As a first step (for approximately 2 years), the boiler will reheat a hot water system that feeds the district heat system operated by the company.

Phase 2 :

As a second step, the boiler will heat a fluid loop (water OR thermal oil)  to feed the heating system and an ORC (Organic Rankyne Cycle). The ORC produces electricity by using heat from a fluid.
