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...

Flame shape and quality

30 January 2012, Published under Cement News

Arthur Harrisson investigates how burning and temperature in various types of kilns has an effect on the clinker produced and discusses different aspects of the burning process such as heating rate, maximum burning temperature, the burning time and the cooling rate to show their importance to clinker quality. Optical microscopy offers visual assessment of clinker quality In the cement manufacturing industry, people still tend to refer to the burner at the front-end of the kiln a...
