SOKA refurbishment IMG 7023-FIVES

Replacement works to improve the lifespan of the burning line were carried out, including:

  • Implementation of a new nose-ring fitted with a downstream seal, to reduce false air flow and improve brick-lining lifetime
  • Machining of the tyres, replacement of the rollers and installation of a new lubrication system, to improve the kiln scanning and enable an homogenous wear of the contact areas
  • Installation of grease spraying system fitted with a new girth gear housing to prevent from advanced wear initiated by grease contamination.
