Boosting AF rates with flame thermography

06 November 2019, Published under Cement News

Over the past 30 years the cement industry has witnessed an increasing use of alternative fuels (AF), but the amount that can be fired in the main burner is limited by different process factors. To optimise AF firing in the main burner, VDZ has conducted several research projects with the aid of flame thermography. The know-how gained has been used to support producers seeking higher AF substitution rates, including a European plant that reached 100 per cent in the main burner without compro...

Processing depth for AFs

06 June 2019, Published under Cement News

In his paper ‘A new approach to burning alternative fuels’, delivered at the Cemtech Europe 2018 conference in Istanbul, Turkey, Oral Turesay of KHD Humboldt Wedag introduced the concept of ‘processing depth’. His thesis was that the greater the proportion of the thermal energy requirements to be provided by alternative fuels (AFs), the greater the investments for kiln modification are likely to be. That is certainly the case and has been borne out by many examples from the international cem...
