Re: Dust insufflation in kiln
I believe that you run a wet kiln. From my experience I can tell you , there is not a complicated technology you need only a hopper, a dosing sistem,a pneumatic pump and a pipe(refractory steel). Important is the position of pipe in the kiln : -between burner and material bed, or opposite to this(in this position be carefull to avoid dust falling on ignition point of fuel).I don't recommend to insufflate dust through primary air or center of the burner. For dosing and conveyance of dust you can contact Claudius Peters.
There is also a possibility to introduce dust in the kiln through holes in the kiln shell after chains zone but at a more expensive investment.
