A producer of cement in Mexico was looking to consistently meet maximum kiln feed. One challenge was fan capacity. With the existing filtration solution, fans only reached speeds of 725 – 730 rpm. This lag resulted in inadequate kiln feed peaks of 100.9 ton/hr, leading the producer to seek a new filtration solution.
The plant selected GORE® LOW DRAG™ Filter Bags to replace its existing membrane filters. The bags’ new membrane promotes increased airflow through the baghouse with persistently low differential pressure. GORE LOW DRAG Filter Bags are used in cement kilns to increase fan speed and efficiency, increase the use of alternative fuels, and ultimately help to increase clinker production rates. Gore installed over 2,850 filter bags in the pulse-jet baghouse and supervised start-up.
Following installation in 2018, the plant increased its fan speed to 745 –
