IKN GmbH is a medium size company located in Neustadt near Hanover, Germany. The company’s root and strength within the cement industry is the field of clinker cooling namely the IKN Pendulum Cooler.
At the beginning, IKN has revolutionised the cement industry with the development of the clinker inlet distribution system called KIDS. Whereas it has been introduced as an upgrade to existing clinker coolers it forms today an integral part of the IKN Pendulum Cooler.
Further innovations such as the highly precise and wear less mobile frame support called LPS manifested the company’s success.
In 2002, IKN extended its activities further by acquiring PSP in the Czech Republic. With the integration of the PSP Pyro engineers the company has extended its competence towards the entire kiln burning line under the name of IKN.
IKN and PSP together provide excellent know-how and in-house manufacturing capabilities for entire greenfield installations and refurbishment projects.
With more than 500 installations worldwide since 1982, IKN has become the market leader in the field of clinker cooling technology. References include smaller coolers with a capacity of 500 tons per day as well as the three largest clinker coolers ever built – each sized for a capacity of 13.000 t/d.
A first set of references for burning lines has been established in Europe and the Middle East.
Customers rely on local offices for service and sales in China, Singapore, USA, India and Brazil, whereas engineering remains concentrated at IKN’s head office in Neustadt.
