ABB in Cement

Cement Industry Solutions...


The Challenge to the Industry
Producing consistent, high-quality cement, meeting
environmental responsibilities, improving process
control, and managing information effectively to
reduce capital employed thats what cement
manufacturing is all about at the dawn of a new
century.
ABB helps you meet these business challenges
by providing automation and power systems that
improve operating procedures and integrate existing
plant equipment. Our experience is unmatched,
with a track record of supplying complete electrication for more than 130 cement plants worldwide.
So, whether you need a single critical component
or a complete turnkey electrication system, look
to ABB as your single source.

Raising Production Standards

ABBs tailored products and services improve


processes and help you achieve optimum
production standards. The automation system
minimizes material and energy use in complex
processes.
Besides improving klinker quality, results
measured in over 170 production lines show an
average of 3% decreased fuel consumption and of
5% increased production.
Protecting the Environment

Each year, environmental regulations get tougher.


And the more stringent the regulations become,
the more money is spent on waste processing and
disposal.
As emissions from cement production decrease
to all-time lows, cement kilns are recognized as
excellent incinerators of waste materials. But
product and operating standards must remain high.
Proactive, exible and adaptive systems are key.
Providing Environmental Safety

High Quality Look


to ABB for process optimization
and control as quality tolerances
get tighter and product diversity
increases.

ABBs Solutions
Boosting Quality

There can be no aws or failures in cement composition, or entire structures could disintegrate.
Advanced information and optimization systems
are needed as never before to monitor and correct
any deviations in quality standards from quarry
to dispatch.

Quarry

For more than 40 years, ABBs environmental


services have helped companies comply with
evolving environmental standards. These services
are being combined with ABB technologies
in process control and optimization, enabling
companies to increase operational efciency as well
as environmental safety.
ABB is working closely with manufacturers to help
them utilize waste products as an energy source
through incineration. The incineration can take
place in the kiln or preheater as a supplementary
fuel. This reduces the cost and consumption of
primary fuel. ABBs expertise and experience helps
manufacturers to maintain stable combustion
conditions while burning a huge variety of waste
products. In partnership with manufacturers we
help in moving them towards their goal of zero
fuel costs.

for Today and Tomorrow


Process Automation and Control

Cement plants need integrated process control


systems that can increase plant-wide efciency and
productivity. Plants must also manage vital process
and business information if management objectives
are to be met. Investments in automation and
control technology, therefore, must be able to pay
dividends as well as help you meet stringent quality
and consistency requirements.
A Comprehensive Approach

ABB, dedicated to excellence in cement, develops a


customer-specic approach. A full range of p roven
automation and power modules takes you from an
automation island to a complete process optimization and management information system that
drives plant-wide efciency. As pressure builds to
reduce capital employed, ABBs ne process control
and immediate data retrieval capabilities become
the essential tools for reducing silo reserves and
minimizing spare parts inventory. And through
our supply and maintenance contracts, you can be
assured of a long-term partnership with ABB.

Companies utilize
ABBs extensive laboratory
integration systems for
a exible approach to
automated modern sample
preparation and analysis.
Samples are taken at predened intervals and pneumatically dispatched to
the laboratory where they are prepared for analysis.
An ABB robot automatically feeds the individual
preparatory and analysis stations, achieving
handling rates of hundreds of samples per day for
the complete cement plant.
Managing Information

Accurate and timely information for your staff is


critical to achieving greater productivity. Whats
more, the time available to make critical business
decisions continues to shrink. The key is to bridge
the gap between process control and business
control systems.
Information at Your Service

ABB is a leader in providing you with immediate


access to essential information. This is where
our advanced cement information management
solutions help in proactive decision-making. You
have the capacity to access thousands of data points
instantly, when and where it is needed, including
business, nancial, production, environmental,
technical, and quality management information.
With complete access to plant and operating data
from a single window, you can deploy personnel
and resources decisively and effectively.
Customer-Specic Approach Empower the experience in your cement operations with ABBs eld proven
solutions.
