In a collaboration with Salt River Materials Group and its Phoenix Cement business, ST Equipment & Technology (STET) will license a particle separator and provide engineering and commissioning services for a fly ash beneficiation facility at the Rocky Mountain Power Huntington generating station in Utah. Equipment installation and ramp up are scheduled with an eye toward mid-year operation.
“[We] have been working closely to develop a commercially effective beneficiation process improving the quality of the fly ash,” says Salt River Materials Senior Vice President, Pozzolan Business Unit Dale Diulus. “We look forward to many years of fly ash sales into the Southwestern U.S. markets.”
“[Our companies] are respected leaders in the fly ash and construction materials fields, and it is a good fit to be collaborating on this project,” adds STET President Tom Cerullo. “The fly ash separator will be our first in the Western U.S.”
The project marks the 26th commercial-scale separator by ST Equipment, whose fly ash LOI (loss on ignition) reduction process is the most widely implemented technology of its kind the world over. For over 30 years, Cerullo notes, STET and its sister company Separation Technologies LLC have been leaders in providing dry powder separation equipment, technology and engineering services for fly ash beneficiation and minerals processing.
STET and Separation Technologies are subsidiaries of Titan America LLC, Norfolk, Va., the North American business of Brussels-based Titan Cement International S.A.
