FCT delivers conversion of direct system to indirect firing for the largest iron ore producer in Chile

Compania Minera del Pacifico, the largest iron ore producer in Chile, contracted FCT Combustion to deliver the conversion of their direct system to indirect firing.

A new dedusting system was supplied to the grinding plant to allow the conversion, complete with gas analyzers and inertization system. Coal conveying to the silo was also supplied, as was the dosing system to the burner. FCT Combustion’s Turbu-Jet burner technology was selected for its customizable multi-fuel capabilities, which in this case will burn fuel oil, natural gas and coal, with nominal thermal power of 100Gcal/h. The supply included oil pumping skid, valve train for oil, and burner management system.

FCT Combustion is proud to have been responsible for integrating the complete EP package, which was commissioned by our dedicated team in March 2020. For more information about the range of solutions FCT Combustion can provide your operation, please contact your local office for a confidential discussion.
