Lafarge Cauldon cement plant is located between the villages of Cauldon and Waterhouses in Staffordshire and was the UK’s first dry process cement manufacturing plant. The plant has been in operation since 1957. With a sustainability strategy launched in April 2022, Cauldon’s focus is on the Air Pollution Control system for emissions monitoring.

CTP Team will replace the existing electrostatic precipitator with new fabric filter for the kiln/raw mill exhaust gas. The original ESP, located inside the existing building will be bypassed and the new dedusting unit will be positioned outside between the existing compressor room and the substation. The new fabric filter will treat approximately 510,000 Am3/h and collect about 310 T/h of dust. It will also effectively control the residual emissions at the stack to ensure compliance with local emissions regulations.

The installation of new connecting ducts from the mill and GCT outlet to the new filter unit, as well as from the filter to the existing fan, will pose complexities for this EPC turnkey project due to space limitations in the area.

The design of the new filter unit aims to balance and minimize energy consumption. It is equipped with our efficient Sonic Wave Acceleration Pulse (SWAP) technology. This proven low-pressure technology for cleaning bags works online, maintaining constant pressure drops over time, and minimizing the consumption of compressed air through quick opening piston valves.
