Rotary Kiln Repair at LafargeHolcim Cement Plant

In February 2021, Refracon took part in the repair of a rotary kiln at the LafargeHolcim Cement plant, located in Ferzikovo village of Kaluga Region. Our specialists have lined the furnace charging ring using specially developed low-cement andalusite-based refractory concrete, which shows excellent thermomechanical strength and alkali resistance.
During this project Refracon removed the old anchors, cleaned the surface, installed new heat-resistant anchors and formwork, and carried out the shotcrete application.
The use of special high-resistant refractory materials will prevent cracking and further destruction and therefore contribute to the environmental safety of production. This modern method of applying refractories also allowed our specialists to reduce installation time.
This was the first project at LafargeHolcim, as well as the first experience of rotary kiln lining repair at a cement plant. This project was completed successfully, since the entire procedure was finished strictly on time, and the quality of the work fully met customer requirements.
