Re: Yellow fumes

Yellow (or orange) fumes indicate an excessive amount of NOx coming out of your stack. This indicates a very hot main burner and/or calciner burner flame temperature combined with highly oxidising kiln conditions.

As a last resort, NOx can be reduced by adding a small amount of ammonia or urea solution to the preheater gas stream at a location upstream from the pre-calciner, where the gas temperature is between 850 and 1150 deg.C.

Plenty of information on this process is available on the internet.
