Did you know you can connect CO2 reduction with higher uptime?

With higher power density, intelligent heat management and unique flexibility and customizability, Danfoss Drives can help your cement plant become more sustainable and more profitable. Mineral processing and cement production are extremely energy intensive, but as energy efficiency is built into every aspect of Danfoss Drives, by optimizing your systems to be more energy efficient, you can deliver more while using less.

Decarbonizing cement with Danfoss Drives

Reaching net zero and decarbonizing cement requires lengthy changes throughout the value chain. With intelligent drives from Danfoss, you can get immediate results by optimizing your cement plant’s energy use while maintaining high equipment availability. Our drives help you use energy more efficiently, enabling you to achieve higher uptime using fewer resources – creating energy and cost savings from the offset

Through our unique solutions like back-channel cooling, load sharing and monitoring, you can, for example, reduce head load in a limestone crusher substation by up to 90%. This prevents thermal overload of your equipment and eliminates the need for a condenser. Danfoss Drives are part of the solution, enabling you to optimize maintenance, cut your energy consumption, and reduce CO2 emissions.

Benefits of using intelligent drives from Danfoss in your cement production

Cloud and advanced analytics

To meet ever-changing cement production and application specific needs, Danfoss intelligent drives connect with any cloud or analytics platform to bring intelligence, as well as condition-based and predictive maintenance, to your entire system.

Improved data security

By applying intelligence close to the data source and processing data on the edge, our intelligent drives increase data protection at your cement plant. They avoid the transmission of raw data to the cloud, on-premises data-storage or automation system, which reduces the amount of data at risk of interception or compromise.

Reduced investment

You can use the drive as a smart hub for external sensors at your cement plant, such as vibration sensors and pressure sensors, to enable condition-based monitoring and process control. As you only need one drive from Danfoss to create a hub, you can avoid spending on additional sensors and gateways.

Lower data cost

Streaming and processing raw data in the cloud can be costly for cement producers. Distributing intelligence and processing data on the edge means you can send pre-processed data, which reduces bandwidth and simplifies data analysis in the cloud.

Open and independent

Our drives work with any kind of motor technology needed for cement production, no matter whether it’s an induction, permanent magnet, or reluctance motor. You have the freedom to choose the best motor technology for your application. You’ll also be able to run the motor at maximum efficiency and performance.
