Compressed Air & Blower Solutions for Cement Plans
We provide the most energy efficient compressed air and blower solutions for every application in cement plants. Our expertise in the sector, focus on service, and our global presence means that we have the most reliable air solutions with the lowest total cost of ownership in the cement industry.
Our cement blower solutions are designed to work under extreme conditions such as heat and rain. This combined with our global service network ensures that we maximize your equipment's uptime and lower the total costs of ownership.
Thanks to our long-standing expertise in the cement industry, we have gathered in-depth knowledge in pneumatic utility and have become a supplier focusing on specific areas of innovation. From cement silo blowers to bulker compressors, we have solutions for all your needs.
We provide the most durable solutions for your compressed air and blower needs. Our compressors typitcally account for a reduction in energy consumption of 30% - 35% compared to competitors. This lowers your TCO even further!
Compressed air is an integral part of the cement industry
Used as an energy source to move the materials in the cement-making process and for powering tools that can withstand the harsh conditions of the process and even more. We offer a complete range blowers and compressors to fit all your applications, making sure you have the optimal solution for both your production process and business.
Maximize efficiency, minimize effort
To further enhance the efficiency of your cement-making process we offer multiple ways to monitor and control your units, minimizing energy consumption, monitoring running conditions and providing information on maintenance status. This, combined with our global service network, reduces potential downtime when maintenance is needed.
Oil-free air avoids contamination
Our oil-free air compressors make sure your production process will not slow down. Air contaminated with sand, water, oil or solids can cause malfunctions of pneumatic tools and machines or make your operation of valves and cylinders sluggish and inconsistent. Additionally, it can cause corrosion, blockages, increases maintenance costs and therefore increase the cost of ownership.
30% less on the energy bill. That’s the difference Atlas Copco’s complete compressor set-up with blowers makes for Oman’s largest cement manufacturer and Middle East cement pioneer, Oman Cement Company SAOG (OCC).
OCC requires air for plant and instrument air, pneumatic conveyors and for aeration in the cement silos. The equipment has to operate continuously in the toughest conditions and at ambient temperatures up to 55°C/131°F. That's why OCC relies on Atlas Copco.
Union Cements Company, one of the biggest cement manufacturers in the UAE for Portland cement, replaced the lobe blowers in field with Atlas Copco screw blowers and maximized the energy savings at their plant.
National Cements Factory (NCF, Abu Dhabi), a leading manufacturer of Ordinary Portland cement in UAE is a subsidiary of Ittihad Group, a major industrial house in UAE. Atlas Copco ZS30 screw blower is serving at their factory to bring reliability and efficiency in the operation.
From dilute to dense materials, we offer the technologies that meet the pressure and flow demands of all your pneumatic conveying processes.
Bulker and train unloading
Opting for a stationary blower instead of a mounted compressor to unload fly ash from bulker to silo can reduce your unloading time by 25% increasing the effectivity of your cement blower for trucks.
When loosening, mixing and discharging bulk material, air is blown into a silo to set it into a liquid-like state, Class 0 oil-free air is needed to safeguard the quality of your cement silo aeration.
When heating up raw materials, combustion air (kiln) is used, the air supply needs to be constant to prevent the heat from dying out.
Accurate air supply doing the cooling process is crucial, as it is directly related to the thickness of the clinker bed. Control of air flow is key. Our products are available with Variable Speed Drive helping you adjust air supply and cut costs by decreasing energy consumption of the process.
Compressed air is used for vertical conveying systems such as an air lift or pump to transport materials to heights of more than 100 meters / 330 feet. A VSD system helps you save energy costs.
