Commissioned in 1974, Sibirskiy Cement’s Krasnoyarsk plant produces clinker for special cement production. Its Kiln 5 will benefit from a new burner, designed to improve its fuel consumption. At present, the kiln is equipped with a Soviet-made single-channel oil-fuelled burner, which includes a metal cylindrical tube with a cone section (nozzle). The tube supplies coal dust mixed with primary combustion air while the secondary air is supplied from the clinker cooler. The telescopic device in the cone section enables the operator to adjust the position of the burning zone.
