The big challenge in the Cement Industry

Cement making is a power consuming business. Up to 40% of the energy in a plant is used only for the grinding processes. Even efficient vertical roller mills (VRM) offer an optimization potential by a better and more reliable measurement. Hot and most dusty gases from rotary kiln, pre-heater tower and clinker cooler can be measured faster, accurately and without any maintenance which opens a huge potential for combustion optimization like the kiln ID fan control.

VRM (raw mill)

VRM (raw mill): drift and maintenance free measurement to control the recirculation of dust laden primary air to optimize the grinding process*

Bypass: to control the amount of bypassed gas to reduce the accumulation of pollutants in the process.* 

Downcomer (Kiln-ID): - control the draft through the preheater tower - optimize fan control - reduce el. energy consumption* 

Bypass
Clinker cooler: detailed control of each cooler stage and balance of the rotary kiln combustion air in combination with TAD and exhaust measurement.

TA: measurement and control of tertiary to the separate line calciner: - stabilize rotary kiln operation - reduce calciner downtime - increase the usage of alternative fuels**

Waste heat recovery: control and optimize the gas flow to the waste heat boiler*
