Re: Kiln Zone !

The burning zone of a cement kiln is the hottest part of the kiln, under the flame where the final combination into the clinker minerals takes place. Behind that burning zone is the upper transition zone where the temperatures is rising to that in the burning zone. In front of that burning zone where the clinker has been formed and is about to enter the cooler is the lower transition zone.

You might be able to tell from the coating on the lining. There should be coating in the burning zone, but the upper transition zone is often withut coating.
