AFS-built systems maximize the benefits from TDF and other solid-waste fuels by providing precise reliable control of fuel feed rates. Our systems are built tough to withstand the demanding environment of the cement industry. Daily use of our equipment saves thousands of dollars in fuel costs annually at cement manufacturing plants across North America and Europe.
Scrap tires and other select solid-wastes, when properly integrated and injected into the cement manufacturing process, typically result in savings of 15% to 30% over the cost of conventional fuels without disturbing a kiln's operational capabilities, product quality, or environmental compliance.
Our Mission - We strategically develop long term partnerships and provide technology know-how and equipment that is cost-effective and performance proven to global cement companies. Our efforts actively support the worldwide cement sustainability initiative. In 1975, under the direction of...
To increase the fuel substitution in Precalciner Kilns AFS provides material handling systems that use Suspension Burners for whole tires. At a rate of 1.5 tons per hour per Suspension Burner most of the tire is burned before it falls to the feed shelf. This reduces sulfur volatilization that... Read more
AFS provides automated material handling systems that use a Double Gate Airlock Valve for introducing Whole Tires and other Bulk Fuels to the Feed shelf to achieve fuel substitution rates as high as 30%, and a fuel-savings ROI in under 24 months. Read more
