Incessant R&D, innovation, provision of value-added glass manufacturing and fulfilling customized demands of local and international customers have made Ghani brand a glass superpower in the region.
On July 1st, 2021, a 0.3 MTPA customized CDE MicroGrader® Silica Sand Processing Line was commissioned by CDE Asia at the mining site of Ahmed Brothers Materials located in Khushab, a city, as well as a district of Sargodha Division, located in the Punjab province of Pakistan.
On being questioned on the intentions behind commissioning the plant, the Company’s Director Mr. Anwaar Ahmed Khan said:
“We were looking for a high-purity silica sand processing plant to meet the requirement of our glass production facilities. As a company with many patented products, we knew CDE Asia would understand our requirement of in-spec sand and provide a solution that is cost-effective and eco-friendly in its own right.”
· Modular Silica Sand Processing: The commissioned plant uses advanced wet processing technology to reduce Fe2O3, TiO2, Al2O3 and other contaminants present in the mined silica sand without losing a significant amount of feed material. A high-purity, silica sand grade can be achieved, which can be used for the production of float glass or container glass depending upon the requirement of the project.
· Eco-Friendly Technology: The installed plant minimizes water use (consumption: 0.28m³ per ton/hour) with recycling, conserves power (consumption: 650 KWH), and has zero effluent discharge.
· Easy to Install: The MicroGrader® F70D customized plant from CDE Asia is a fully automatic system with a modular setup with minimum geographical footprint.
Speaking of how the sand beneficiation plant will be a game-changer for Ghani Group, Alexander Baart, Regional Director of PT CDE South-East Asia located in Jakarta, said, “Being the leading company in wet equipment processing industry, we are proud to have assisted a prestigious client like Ghani Group to achieve their targeted silica sand grade. This is our first project in Pakistan. I will ensure that we handhold the project in terms of providing both remote and in-country service support and making parts available through our Indonesian warehousing facility”.
Smart Technology with Internet Inside:
This project will also remain memorable as a testimony of how well-planned collaborations based on trust and cooperation work. Although the plant & equipment along with required utilities were already available at the project site, Covid-19 and restrictions on international travel posed significant challenges for the installation and commission of the project. CDE Engineers were not allowed to travel to Pakistan due to Visa restrictions. The entire erection and commissioning of the project were completed using the CDE Smart Technology, a massive achievement by engineers on both sides of the border.
CDE Asia’s Operations Manager, Sanjit Kumar added “The MicroGrader® F70D is preinstalled with multiple IoT sensors and internet capability that communicates with CDE Command Center servers throughout its operations. This allows our customers to operate their business from anywhere in the world. They can start & stop their plant remotely, receive a daily report of production, power usage, water usage and more, all from the comfort of their homes. The CDE plant is always connected with CDE Command Center through the internet making it possible for our team to assist our customers 365 days a year. We are grateful to Mr. Shahid Ali, Project Head of Ahmed Brothers Materials for trusting us with this first project in Pakistan and giving his support and teamwork to install and commission the project remotely”.
