Cement cooling is an important step in the cement production process, as it reduces the chance of gypsum dehydration and the formation of lumps, reducing the overall quality of the final cement. Learn how cement is cooled using innovative new technology that is more energy- and cost-efficient.

With over half of the world’s food supply dependent on fertilizer due to nutrient lacking soil, the importance of fertilizer production, fertilizer storage and transport continues to grow.
Novomoskovskiy Azot (NAK Azot) is one of Russia’s largest chemical enterprises. It operates a highly upgraded and modernized facility that has a strong foothold in ammonia and nitrogen fertilizer production. It is the second largest ammonia producer and the largest nitrogen fertilizer producer in Russia as well as a major exporter in the world market.
Solex Thermal Science Inc. has been selected to provide a 50 metric ton per hour sugar cooler to Zucarmex for their Melchor Ocampo mill in Mexico. Zucarmex needed to find a solution to prevent their sugar from caking to improve the quality of their product for their customers.
Salt is Big Business. Salt manufacturing is among the oldest chemical industries in the world. Over the past century, annual global production has risen from 10 million tonnes to more than 200 million tonnes.
Bulk solids cooling is a common step in many chemical processes.
The importance of fertilizers to the world economy can hardly be overstated and the growth in fertilizer consumption since the 1960s has been impressive. By supplying crops with essential nutrients, fertilizers facilitate efficient use of land and water.
The concept of a bulk solid cooler for fertilizer products was introduced to the industry over 20 years ago. Since then Solex has installed more than 60 coolers of this type in fertilizer plants around the world.
Traditional Cooling Technology Requires High Energy Consumption The most common method of cooling bulk solids is direct air-cooling – like fluid bed coolers or drum coolers.
Fluid bed technology is used for cooling, heating and drying of bulk solids materials, and takes place by passing a gas (most commonly air) through a perforated distributor plate which then flows through a layer (bed) of solids.
