This project will consist of the development of a proposal that contributes to the optimization of the compressed air system of Caracolito Plant, cement producer and owned by Cemex Colombia. Located on kilometer 3.5 via Payande Tolima. The selected areas to carry out the development of the project will be Mine and Raw Materials with Calcination. This need arose due to the increase in the frequency of unscheduled machine shutdowns and their low efficiency; that are attributed to shortcomings of the compressed air system. This exalts the need to identify and analyze in detail the causes that generate instability of the compressed air system. It is based on the analyzes that plant personnel have carried out after every unscheduled stoppage and the reports of field operators. These have allowed us to identify the main conflicts that arise in the system, such as the presence of condensates in the distribution network, constant drops in pressure, air pollution with oil, presence of leaks in the network, high energy consumption and low reliability of compressor equipment. It is intended that with the implementation of the improvement proposals that are raised in this project, open a change that will be reflected in the progressive increase in the efficiency of the system. Achieving an optimum quality of the air generated for the different processes, decrease of the energy consumption and a significant increase in the reliability of the generation and treatment equipment.
