MULTICOR® system by Schenck Process is weighing and feeding equipment for Coal dust, Raw Meal and Fly ash etc. The highlight of this system is its very high accuracy and consistency. This system helps to improve and better the kiln performance in cement industries.
MULTICOR® uses a unique measuring system based upon Coriolis Principle, wherein a constant speed variable torque motor is used to drive the MULTICOR® at constant speed. Any variation in feed rate, results in change in motor torque which is measured by loadcell fitted with specially designed mechanism. This input is given to controller DISOMAT TERSUS which controls the pre-feeder to nullify the variation in MULTICOR® output thereby resulting in constant feed rate.
There are two different types of MULTICOR® systems for Pyro; (a) For coal-Schenck offers combination of MULTICELL® (pre-feeder) + MULTICOR® K (Measuring Unit) and (b) For Raw Meal- Schenck offers combination of Dosing Valve (pre-feeder) + MULTICOR® S (Measuring Unit).
MultiCor K-Coal Dust Application
The unique features of MULTICOR® K for coal feeding offer tangible benefits & superior performance to users as below:
- MULTICELL® + MULTICOR® K installation uses less headroom as compared to other alternatives, resulting in extra saving for the user.
- MULTICOR® K measurement is based upon torque & hence independent of external factors such as vibrations, wind force, tare etc.
- No venting is required hence no bag filter is needed. MULTICOR® is therefore easy to operate.
- No aeration is required on continuous basis as the system has integrated agitator which helps in homogenizing Coal & also facilitates the smooth & uniform Coal flow.
- MULTICELL® has wide inlet of 700-800 mm which makes mass flow possible in coal bin & avoids funnel flow. This facilitates complete filling of MULTICELL® pockets.
- The above system offers high accuracy, better than +/- 0.5%.
MultiCor S-Kiln Feed-Fly Ash Application
The high accuracy results in allowing customer to feed fly ash to max permissible percentage, thereby resulting in higher saving.
Schenck Prcess has more than 200 installations of MULTICOR® systems in India and the numbers are growing with high degree of customer satisfaction. The repeat orders from the major cement OEM’s is a vote of confidence for Schenck Process for high quality, performance & best services.
Cement Manufacturers ‘Benefits’ using MULTICOR® system:
- Assists in meeting CO2 reduction targets.
- Better ROI
- Retrofitting of solutions into existing plants.
- Co-operation with a global solution provider, who understands your market and production needs.
Over and above, enabling cement producers to reduce their investment levels in capital equipment and operating costs, utilising the MULTICOR® systems
It is simple to install due to its in-line implementation and compact construction. Maintenance and repair costs are both low.

Adani Group eyes Jaiprakash Associates’ Shahabad cement plant
Adani group has reportedly expressed interest in acquiring a cement plant from Jaiprakash Associates, located in Karnataka with a capacity of 1.2Mt per year. The plant is reportedly in the middle of an as yet incomplete deal between Jaiprakash Associates’ and Dalmia Bharath for a value of US$671mn for a transfer of the former’s cement and power plants.
It has also been reported that Adani Group is in talks with several companies over possible acquisitions as a means to double its cement producing capacity to 140mt per year by the end of 2028.
Dalmia Bharat records a hike in cement sales
Dalmia Bharat recorded a rise of 9.6 per cent in its sales y-o-yfrom 12Mt in the first half of financial year 2023 to 13.2Mt in the first half of financial year 2024. This rise has led to an increase in earnings from US$116m to US$144m during the same period. The company started commercial production from their new 5,00,000t/yr capacity clinker plant in Ariyalur and 2mt/yr Sattur grinding plant, both located in Tamil Nadu, raising the company’s clinker capacity to 22.2Mt/yr. This increase in capacity was attributed largely to the company’s foresight in estimating high growth in construction material demand in the country due to a boom in infrastructure development. The company has also managed to reduce their carbon footprint to 456kg/t of cement, lowest recording globally in the cement industry.
Total cost of decarbonising Indian cement and steel industry estimated at USD 627 bn
The Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), funded by power provider BP recently reported that it will require a Capital expenditure investment of USD627Bn to decarbonise the Indian cement and steel sector, to reach net zero CO2 emissions. According to the report, the Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) and other similar efficiency enhancing upgrades to cement plants can help reduce the industry’s emissions down by 32 per cent immediately.
