  • How to Take Temperature Measurements Inside a Cement Kiln
    The inside of a cement kiln is an extremely challenging environment for making any kind of temperature measurement. Kiln rotation, high temperatures, and the movement of the sintering material along the kiln, make thermocouples and other contact-based temperature sensors impractical.
  • MEI-PDL Case Study - Holcim - Cement Kiln Dust
    Holcim Cantagalo recently came to Macawber Engineering's Brazilian licensee, PDL Sistemas for a quality Cement Kiln Dust pneumatic conveying system for an intermediate system conveying to a final storage silo. This is to replace a pressurized silo truck which led to dusty conditions and inefficient
  • Measuring the Temperature of a Cement Kiln Using an Infrared Imager
    Temperature measurements across the cement manufacturing process are essential to support process efficiency and cement product quality, and accurate knowledge of the kiln shell temperature is essential for plant reliability and safety.
  • Measuring Gas Temperatures In Combustion Processes By Infrared Pyrometry
    Infrared thermometry is used in a wide range of industrial processes to measure the temperature of objects as diverse as a blast furnace shell, glass in a melt tank or the clinker in a cement kiln.
  • Oxygen Measurement Improves Efficiency and Product Quality in Cement and Lime Kilns
    The measurement of oxygen (O2) inside a rotating kiln provides a good indication of combustion efficiency. This oxygen measurement can also provide an inferred indication of calcining rates and the production of thermal NOX. Maintaining a consistent oxygen level can prevent variations in product
  • The Significance of Monitoring Rotary Kiln Hot Spots
    Rotary kilns play a pivotal role in various industries, including cement, lime production, iron ore pelletisation, waste incineration, and more. These cylindrical furnaces, lined with refractory stones and slightly tilted, continuously process materials as they rotate.
    Temperature monitoring in and around the kiln is essential to an efficient process, and to produce cement of consistent quality. It also enables early detection of kiln refractory issues or insufficiently quenched clinker, which could lead to production stoppages if left unchecked.
  • DynaGuard Flexible Insulation Used in Rotory Kiln Applications (.pdf)
    Producers of lime and Portland cement operate rotary kilns as part of their manufacturing process. These rotary kilns are large horizontal cylinders, slightly elevated at the charge end to permit gravity to propel their product through kiln, which rotates slowly to tumble the product inside
