IKN´s latest turnkey cooler revamping Project in Texas, USA

In December 2016, Martin Marietta Materials signed a contract with IKN for replacement of the existing clinker cooler in line #5 at their Midlothian plant in Texas, USA. The scope of the project includes the supply of a complete new IKN Pendulum Cooler® with a capacity of up to 8.500 stpd. The new cooler is equipped with an IKN Roll Crusher in the intermediate position. Modification of the kiln hood and a new kiln outlet seal are also part of the scope. The contract has been signed on an EPC basis and includes all related electrical, civil and mechanical installation supply and erection work. Sourcing and installation of the refractory will also be under the responsibility of IKN. Final installation of the project is planned for the first quarter of 2018 and is scheduled for 35 days flame‐to‐flame.

6 new 6.000 tpd Pendulum Coolers® shipped to Egypt

In March 2017, 60 containers were shipped to Egypt making this the largest single shipment ever in the history of IKN. Only 9 months before, IKN was awarded a contract for the supply of six new 6.000 tpd IKN Pendulum Coolers® for the Government of Egypt as part of the new lines which are being supplied by Chengdu Design & Research Institute of Building Materials Industry. Frank Lichomski, Director Sales:”This order is especially important for us because it proves the superior concept of IKN´s clinker cooling technology. The customer operates four similar lines at a different location with coolers based on “walking floor technology”, but for this important Project the IKN Pendulum Cooler® was selected because of ist lower electrical power consumption, high efficiency and trouble-free operation.” Installation and commissioning of the coolers is scheduled for the third quarter of 2017, and finalization of the whole plant is expected by the end of the year.
