While two lines have been erected and exceed their 12,000 t/d design capacity, the third one is due to start up in April 2012. For the coolers of these new lines, Anhui Conch turned to Germany-based IKN.

Extraction of the mid-air from the grate cooler results in a further reduction of heat loss and an increased degree of heat recuperation.
