US Ash Grove’s pyro upgrade of Leamington plant


Ash Grove Cement, a CRH Company, has chosen FLSmidth for the pyro upgrade of its Leamington plant in Utah in the USA. The facility opened in 1980 and has been upgraded 1996 for the first time. The new pyro upgrade targets the efficiency of the kiln system, including a new calciner section, a new tertiary air duct, a new kiln drive system and other parts. A main goal is to reduce the pressure drop of the system and the reduce fuel and electricity consumption. The Leamington plant supplies cement to the Salt Lake area and parts of Nevada and New Mexico.
