Re: kiln inlet material flushing

Dear Prisoner,

What we have observed two main reasons for material leakage from inlet seal. Either your inlet trough plates or tounge plates are wear OR inlet seal pneumetic jacks are not working properly. If so, try to run kiln with maximum possible speed or you will face more flushing with low speed in such condition. Hope this will help you.

Have a nice day.

Re: kiln inlet material flushing

One of the reason for kiln inlet material spillage, is due to mud ring formation near kiln inlet.

Possible reason for mud ring formation....

- High alkali / sulfur circulation.

- High calcination %

- Low rawmeal residue

- Burning zone ring formation

-  Inlet seal mechenical fault.

- Sometimes due to castable failure & abnormal coation formation at inlet.
