Capitol Cement contracted Western Refractory to demolish the existing steel and refractory from the 4-stage preheater and work hand in hand with the owner's parent company, Zachary Construction, to reinstall the new low-pressure vessels. The company also lined the very first down draft calciner and deSOx system ever installed. Western carried out a major retrofit to the existing cooler, mainly to oversize teh tertiary air duct to take off. This project required 1905.12 t of refractory materials with just over 453.6 t of castable in the down draft calciner alone, which consisted of a 13.5 in. thick three part lining.
