Heat Exchange Solex Thermal Science offers the development, design and manufacturing of high-efficiency, indirect heat ex- changers. The Solex heat exchanger is capable of han- dling any relatively free-flowing powder or crystalline bulk solids, making it the perfect candidate to cool cement, while using up to 90 percent less energy. The cooling of cement is an important step prior to stor- age in mitigating gypsum dehydration and subsequent moisture liberation that can lead to lump forma- tion. Recommendations vary but it is generally ac- cepted that with mill outlet temperatures of around 110 C to 120 C, cooling to below 80 C is necessary to avoid this reaction. The ideal temperature to fur- ther avoid moisture attrac- tion while in storage (due to its hygroscopic proper- ties) is in the range of 50 C to 60 C. With a heat transfer area of almost 10 times that of traditional vertical powder coolers combined with up to 75 percent less water usage, the Solex Cooler of- fers high efficiency, effec- tiveness and reliability. www.solexthermal.com 20. Wear Protection Kalenborn Abresist offers a variety of products for wear protection. The wear-resistant prod- ucts are ideal for lined slurry piping, bunkers, bunker spi- rals, chutes and hop- pers handling abra- sive and corrosive components such as mine backfill, mag- netite, tailings and ore concentrate.
