Hans Georg Conrads, PROMECON, outlines how gas flow can be better controlled and handled in the grinding and pyro processes in order to improve the efficiency of cement production.

In the cement industry, pressures as well as temperatures have often been used to calculate the process gas flows, however this method leaves uncertainty about the real flows of gas as well as enthalpy in the process.

Today, the following processes in the cement industry are of special interest when it comes to process gas flow measurement.

Nearly all these applications have several things in common which usually have a significant impact on conventional gas flow measurements.
