Food major opts for Thermax’s boilers and air pollution control systems

A leading manufacturer of nucleotides, lysine and monosodium glutamate (MSG) in Indonesia was a user of coal based chain grate fired boilers across their plants. Thermax was given an opportunity to replace their low-efficiency boilers with a Bi-drum FBC boiler in 2016. Satisfied with the quality and performance of the product along with curbing coal consumption, the customer placed a repeat order for 3 x 35 TPH Bi-drum boilers for its other plants. Thermax also supplied and installed four numbers of Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) on their existing boilers to achieve particulate emission norms of <100 mg/Nm3.

Thermax’s boiler at a herbal pharmaceutical major

In 2016, PT Thermax received an order from a leading Indonesian herbal pharmaceutical producer. PT Thermax supplied a Combloc boiler with reciprocating grate suitable to fire high moisture herbal waste. This has helped the customer to reduce its energy cost as earlier the herbal waste was being converted to pellets to be fired in an FBC boiler.

Based on their experience with the boiler and the accrued savings, in 2018, the customer placed a repeat order for another 10 TPH Combloc boiler with reciprocating grate for its sister concern.

Thermax sets a record by commissioning a 40 TPH boiler in just 40 days for Pharmaceutical major in Indonesia.


Thermax’s esteemed customer PT Cheil Jedang alias CJ Bio awarded an order for a 40 TPH Bi drum boiler. Thermax successfully completed erection and commissioning of the entire plant within eight months against a typical duration of twelve months. The entire commissioning activity was completed within 40 days instead of a four-months usual period.

Project Insights



In appreciating Thermax’s work Mr. Mukh Mustain (Engg Construction Manager) from CJ Bio said that “Erection of the boiler was completed on account of Thermax’s proper planning, safety, and technical expertise.”. He specially mentioned the work that was done by Sateesh D, Vaibhav Mohite and Rakesh Kumar and their respective teams for ensuring timely installation and commissioning.

This feat was possible owing to the high-quality execution by Thermax experts that eliminated any extra time spent in rework. The entire project was completed in adherence to the highest standards of safety resulting in zero reported incidents.

A critical success factor was the collaboration between CJ Bio and Thermax. The client provided all necessary support with logistics, planning, and execution.

The early commissioning not only helped customers resume operations before stipulated time but also helped Thermax achieve higher efficiency and cost savings.

to a strong association with CJ Bio in the future.
