Cement Processing - Infrared Monitoring of Kiln Shells
Rotary kilns used in cement processing are made from steel, lined with ceramic refractory material to protect the steel from the heat of the burner (1500°C/2700°F).
Knowing the status of the refractory is critical to maintain kiln performance and prevent cost intensive breakdowns.
- Detect hotspots due to refractory loss, damage or wear
- Detect abnormal operating conditions, such as baking
- Optimize and manage kiln maintenance
- Extend operational life of kiln and refractory
