Kilns are used to raise materials to a high temperature, for applications including metal ore extraction and the production of molten metal, particularly iron.

Controlling combustion processes in the kiln will optimize process efficiency and the quality of the end product. Specialized, proven instruments are needed to handle the high particulate levels and extreme temperatures.

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 combustion gases in kilns, using trusted measurement technologies and specialized designs to deliver reliable performance, even in challenging and 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).
