We use PROMECON’s coal flow measurement system and density dampers to improve combustion. A new Kalman Filter will also be applied to increase in load swing capacity. I can recommend the McON Air system as a useful and reliable measurement solution to optimize the air/gas flow with hot dusty applications in the cement industry. We are satisfied with the McON Air measurement performance and excellent customers support by PROMECON and treasure the McON Air experience on the kiln to evaluate further applications. We recommend the PROMECON McON Air system as a low maintenance and drift free alternative to conventional analog measurements based on delta pressure. We have utilized the McON Air System on our coal mill and downcomer for nine years and currently adding a third system to our raw mill to control air flow.

LafargeHolcim ordered five McON Air System from PROMECON for three of their plants in France.

Over the last nine months Lafarge Holcim has ordered various PROMECON McON Air systems in order to optimize their facilities. According to LafargeHolcim, the measurements led to excellent results. This is why they decided to order some more PROMECON McON Air measurements only a few weeks ago.

The McON Air systems all got installed at the application lepol grate, where the velocity flow is up to 25 m/s. The dust content is between 5 to 15 g/m³ while the process temperature is approximately about up to 550°C.
