Project Arcos / Brazil
ZEMDES supplied the cyclone preheater for the new Arcos plant of the Brazilian CSN group. In the course of the year 2016, the assembly was completed. The trial operation of the plant began at the end of 2016. This was successfully completed by our staff, so the plant was handed over to the customer in the middle of December.
On the basis of customer specifications, the plant could not be operated with a guaranteed capacity 6.500 t/d for now. At the top were reached 6.100 t/d. The measured parameters of the system showed, however, that the guaranteed 6.500 t/d are easily accessible for the ZEMDES preheater.
