Run plant without cyclone dip tubes.
Can we operate plant on full capacity without having DIP tube in bottom cyclone.
What are expected effect on Production, PH fan load, Cyclone exit and cone T & P and other operational changes if you know in such condition.

Re: Run plant without cyclone dip tubes.
We are running 5000 tpd kiln with the maximum capacity without bottom cyclone dip tube (due to shortage of spare parts). Running the kiln without a dip tube may only decrease the settling efficiency of bottom cyclone which can result in:
1) A higher temperature at top of the preheater
2) A higher heat consumption.
3) A little rise in negative pressure at top.
