Dual-process dosingThe Indian company J.K Cement Works started production at their new green field plant in Fujairah (UAE) by the end of 2014: The plant is not only one of the few plants worldwide which produces white cement. On top, this plant also produces grey cement in one and the same production line. It is able to switch the necessary fuels for the clinker process - petcoke and coal dust - in next to no time. One reason for this smooth switchover: the fuels which fire the kiln and calciner are dosed by pneumatical rotor weighfeeders from German FLSmidth Pfister. Those devices are engineered for flawless handling of different pulverised fuels.
