Cemcor upgrades Cookstown cement plant’s bag filter

Cemcor has installed a new US$7.54m bag filter at its Cookstown cement plant in County Tyrone. The system will detect signs of bag damage and isolate the affected row of bags for either online maintenance or, if the damage is minor, resealing with process dust.

The Irish News has reported that managing director David Millar said “We are forward thinking at Cemcor and understood it was time to put our money on the line and invest in the plant’s efficiencies and sustainable outputs, to protect the environment around us and future-proof the plant itself.”
