Process Improvements

With today’s surging energy and fuel costs and with the increasing demand for higher production capacities as well as stable product quality, the cement industry faces globally the necessity for improving and modernizing existing plant facilities. 

A TEC is presently one of the world’s leading companies in the field of modifying existing cement kiln systems to reduce the energy consumption in terms of fuel and electrical power and to increase production capacity. To achieve before mentioned improvements, the pyroprocess as well as the grinding circuits and cooling equipment have to be taken into consideration.


A TEC’s team of highly experienced and skilled process and mechanical engineers conduct:

  • Detailed analysis and assessment of the existing equipment (heat and mass balance of pyroprocess and grinding circuits, finding of bottlenecks, mechanical analysis of existing structures etc.)
  • Computer aided simulation of process parameters after modification and possible achievements in terms of energy consumption and production increase
  • Engineering and technologies for modifications of kiln systems

For the modification work, depending on the customer’s requirements, A TEC will supply either turn-key solutions or supply the basic and detailed engineering and core technologies like HURRICLON® and HURRIVANE® to be manufactured and installed under expert supervision of A TEC engineers.

All our  successfully completed projects (entire or partial modifications of cement kiln systems) are the best proof of A TEC’s expertise and capability in this field. Please click here to have an overview of our references.
