Kilns & Combustion Equipment

Combustion control in the rotary kiln is important, but can prove challenging due to the presence of high levels of dust and other particulate matter. Efficient control of the combustion processes in cement and lime production can help reduce the fuel costs involved in creating the significant amounts of energy required, and also lower emissions.

Kilns are used for the pyro-processing stage of many cement and lime manufacturing processes, where the raw materials are subjected to high temperatures. This heat is generated by combustion, which must be controlled for safety and efficiency.

Kilns use combustion to achieve high temperatures for the calcination process.  The effective control of combustion increases burner output while also reducing fuel costs and lessens emissions.

We provide proven solutions for monitoring gases in the combustion process. These use a range of different gas analysis technologies to provide the best match to the application– with options for high-particulate conditions.

    Combustion control

    The key to combustion efficiency is to find the optimum ratio between air and fuel in the combustion reaction. This requires, at the minimum, accurate monitoring of oxygen, and also benefits from additional measurements: combustibles (for process optimization) and methane/hydrocarbon (for safety).
