OPTIMIZING ENERGY COSTS
The costs of heat and electricity are major factors in the production of cement. The powerful electric drives in mills and rotary furnaces also create a huge demand for reactive power. To reduce the costs of the reactive power purchased and comply with the connection requirements of the grid operator, appropriate compensation systems are almost indispensable. The use of speed-controlled drives reduces demand for electric power. As a result, harmonics may place strain on the grid. Appropriately designed filter systems help to retain the line voltage quality and comply with the requirements for connecting to the grid. For special cement, manufacturers also use electric arc furnaces, the voltage of which requires optimum control to prevent line perturbation and to keep the smelting process stable.
INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR EFFICIENT PRODUCTION
Reinhausen helps to optimize your cement production. MR on-load tap-changers regulate the step-up transformers, which supply your drives with the right voltage, with the maximum reliability you are accustomed to. Our vacuum on-load tap-changers perform 300,000 and more tap changes without maintenance. They also undertake the high number of tap-change operations needed for optimum control of electric arc furnaces. Reinhausen Power Quality helps you keep control of reactive power and grid disturbances: We analyze your requirements and provide compensation systems for reactive power along with tailored, high-precision filter systems for harmonics. And our global service team is of course always on hand.
