Waste Heat Recovery

Waste Heat Recovery Optimization in Cement Production with PROMECON's McON Air

Our advanced air flow measurements in cement plants are specially designed devices. Measuring tools, like the patented gas flow analyzer system, McON Air Compact, provides a unique solution for controlling and optimizing the gas flow to the waste heat boiler.

Why Waste Heat Recovery?

Cement production is energy-intensive, with up to 40% of energy used for grinding processes. Even efficient mills can be further optimized with precise measurements. Our technology enables improved combustion control, promoting energy efficiency and alternative fuels utilization.
