Lintec’s Aggregate Cooling System (ACS) is described as a new, patented and fully containerised plant concept for the direct cooling of aggregates for concrete mixes. Being showcased at bauma, ACS is said by Lintec to work in a desert environment without the usual and costly addition of specifically produced ice.
The patented ACS process uses pre-cooled water and a fan system to cool the fine sand as well as the bigger aggregates. The ACS system, available with new plants and through retrofitting on existing ones, is said to ensure cost savings of more than 50% compared to the use of the ice cooling system.
