Laitex solutions included in Vapo’s new activated carbon plant in Ilomantsi

Laitex Oy will supply Vapo’s new activated carbon plant with process equipment, conveyors, and storage after the activated carbon furnace. This is a strategically significant project for Vapo to meet the growing international demand for activated carbon.

Laitex’s solutions include equipment after the activated carbon combustion. After the furnace, the activated carbon is cooled with a cooling screw supplied by Laitex from 650 °C to 60 °C. The cooled activated carbon is then transported by Laitex conveyors to four different silos. Laitex also supplied all silo unloading equipment.

“We are committed to building solutions for even the most demanding projects and are constantly striving to develop our customers’ business. Vapo’s Ilomantsi plant is a good sign of their courage to open up new markets, and we at Laitex help meet new goals,” says Lasse Kurronen, CEO of Laitex Oy.
