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...
