Kahramanmaras Cimento (KIPAS)

The recently commissioned KCS Kahramanmaras Cimento’s Maras Kiln Line II was installed next to the existing Maras I Line, which was also installed by KHD. The new line, which has KHD supplied main equipment and state-of-the-art KHD technology for alternative fuel firing, produced impressive results at its recent performance test. 

The test was conducted using a mixture of approximately 40% petcoke and 60% lignite (of the same quality and fineness) for the main burner and calciner burner. Following are the results of the test:
