During 2013, six Cross-Bar coolers were successfully installed in China. Four of them are now in operation.

At CUCC Jiyuan, China’s first complete Cross-Bar cooler was installed between April and July. The cooler includes a hammer crusher located in the cooler outlet and is now successfully serving the 4,000 tpd cement production line.

Yadong Ruichang has had two Cross-Bar coolers installed, serving lines 5 and 6, respectively. One was completed in April, the other at the end of the year. Each have a capacity of 7,000 tpd, and this is the first time in China that the HRB crusher is located in the central part of the Cross-Bar cooler.
