Cement kilns are used for the pyroprocessing stage of manufacture of Portland and other types of hydraulic cement, in which calcium carbonate reacts with silica-bearing minerals to form a mixture of calcium silicates. Over a billion tonnes of cement are made per year, and cement kilns are the heart of this production process: their capacity .
Shaft kiln: shaft kiln is a kind of vertical set stationary cement kiln. It can be divided into the ordinary shaft kiln and machinery shaft kiln. Since mechanical shaft kiln can maintain continuous production, its output, and the quality of cement is higher than ordinary shaft kiln, so it is more popular in cement manufacturing plants.
Most Portland cement is made in a rotary kiln. Basically, this is a long cylinder rotating about its axis once every minute or two. The axis is inclined at a slight angle, the end with the burner being lower.
Cement rotary kiln, also called clinker kiln, can be divided into dry-process cement kiln and wet-process cement kiln according to the cement production technology. Dry-process cement rotary kiln is mainly used to calcine cement clinker.
Shaft kiln, also known as vertical kiln, vertical shaft kiln, is a vertical and fixed clinker firing equipment. The meal ball with coal is fed into cement kiln from the kiln crown, and meal ball moves from top to bottom, air move from bottom to top.
With the continuous progress of the cement industry, rotary kiln, as the core cement equipment of cement production line, is developing towards a large scale. Compared with the traditional rotary kiln, its technology is more complex, and the requirements for rotary kiln design and accessories are higher.
(b) Kilns, clinker coolers, material dryers, mills, and finish mills. (2) * * * Existing kilns that combine the clinker cooler exhaust and/or alkali bypass and/or coal mill exhaust with the kiln exhaust and send the combined exhaust to the PM control device as a single stream may meet an alternative PM emissions limit.
