Assessing the True Costs of Filter Bags in Cement Kiln Baghouses

EVONIK, Webcast Experts, Cement Kiln


October 2 | NEW YORK 11:00 AM | CHICAGO 10:00 AM | DENVER 9:00 AM

Cement plants are struggling to keep costs down while adhering to increasingly stringent emission regulations such as the Cement MACT rule which specify PM limits of 0.07 lb/ton of clinker for exiting plants and 0.02 lb/ton of clinker under the New Source Performance Standards for new plants. Meeting these stringent emissions limits requires a thorough consideration of filter media options for plants with baghouses. Factors such as filter bag lifetime, PM removal efficiency, and reducing downtime and maintenance costs all need to be considered in selecting baghouse filter media best suited for each plant’s operating conditions. Further, the ever-increasing demand for higher cement quality is a challenge for the grinding system and the high amount of fine dust requires a highly effective filter media.

Now offering Certificates of Completion for all our Webinars.

Evonik Fibers P84® polyimide fiber provides a proven, high-temperature filter media option warranting strong consideration for demanding cement plant applications. During this informative webinar, Nathan Schindler, U.S. Technical Sales Manager will address an effective and efficient means of evaluating the total cost of ownership of cement plant baghouses through a filtration assessment.

This informative webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Evaluating the impact of your baghouse on energy use

  • Evaluating the impact of your baghouse on production reliability

  • Evaluating the impact of your baghouse on maintenance costs

  • Evaluating the impact of your baghouse on operating costs

  • Examples of Filtration Assessments

  • Case Studies demonstrating the benefits of selecting the right filter media

Specific questions to be addressed include:

  • What are the key differences between conventional fibers and Evonik’s P84®?

  • How can Evonik’s newest fiber help your plant handle high temperature upsets?

  • How do I meet Cement MACT and other emission requirements without sacrificing efficiency?

  • How does reduced pressure drop and ΔP recovery translate into lower operating costs?

  • How does the proper filtration decision prevent production losses?

The webinar will help cement plant operators identify and determine the most suitable filter media solution for your filtration specifications.

  • Who should attend:

    • Owners and Operators of Baghouses

    • Cement and Lime Plant Managers and Engineers

    • Maintenance Personnel
