Getting on the wheels of sustainability
To reduce its dependence on coal while retaining efficiency, Goodyear South Asia Pvt. Ltd., a leading tyre company, reached out to Thermax for adopting sustainable heating solutions. The Heating business commissioned a 28 TPH Bi-Drum reciprocating grate boiler at its tyre manufacturing unit located in Waluj, Aurangabad. Capable of providing uninterrupted operation even on highly choking fuels, the boiler is designed to run on soya briquettes, biomass pellets as well as Indonesian coal to supply high steam pressure of 25 kg/cm2 for moulding, cleaning and drying of rubbers.
The project was completed on an EPC basis where apart from the boiler, material handling systems for fuel, dry ash and fly ash; ESP and chimney were also supplied, installed and commissioned by Thermax. The project was handed over to the customer for continuous operation within ten months.
