numerical investigation of the impact of coating layers on rdf combustion and clinker properties in rotary cement kilns - sciencedirect

CFD-simulations of rotary cement kilns considering coating layers are conducted.Numerical models for RDF, coating and clinker bed are presented and combined.The impact of coating regions on RDF combustion and clinker properties is investigated.Light and evenly distributed coating profiles are found to be beneficial for the process.Heavy and locally concentrated coating can result in a high free lime content of 2wt%.

The formation of regions of solid coating, where agglomerated clinker material adheres to the refractory lining of the kiln wall, is very common during cement clinker production. While a thin coating layer protects the refractory lining, strong deposit formation can impair the material flow through the kiln. In this study, the impact of these coating layers on the clinker production process within a rotary kiln is investigated with CFD simulations. The fuel injected at the main burner is a mixture of pulverized coal and refuse derived fuel (RDF). Advanced models were developed to accurately describe the trajectories and thermal conversion of non-spherical RDF particles in the gas phase. These models are based on a detailed fuel analysis of major RDF fractions. A blocked-off region approach is used to consider different coating profiles within the simulation domain. The thermochemical processes in the clinker bed of the kiln are approximated with a one-dimensional model that calculates heat and mass exchange with the gas phase, the incorporation of fuel ashes into the bed and the chemical-mineralogical reactions of the clinker. The blocked-off region approach is also employed to account for the clinker bed geometry in the kiln, which greatly depends on the considered coating profile. Two cases, one with a thin and evenly distributed coating profile and one with a thick and locally concentrated coating, are simulated. The resulting impact on RDF conversion, gas phase properties and clinker phase formation are assessed and compared to a reference case without any coating. Results show that the insulation effect of a thin coating profile increases the gas phase temperature in the kiln and helps to reduce the free lime content of the final clinker product. In the case of heavy coating, a temperature shift towards the solid material inlet of the kiln occurs, which outweighs the beneficial insulation effect of the coating in the sintering zone and leads to lower local gas phase temperatures. In combination with reduced clinker residence times, this results in a slight increase of the free lime content in the clinker.

clinker ball formation in pre burning zone of the rotary kiln - page 1 of 3

clinker ball formation in pre burning zone of the rotary kiln - page 1 of 3

We have two kilns in our unit. In both the kilns, we are facing very big unshaped clinker coating coming from kiln inlet to pre burning zone and disturb the steady kiln operations. Sometime, this very big coating block the entire cross section of the kiln at the pre burning zone starting. Experts may kindly suggest solutions to solve this problem

Dear Mr. T.Rajgopal, Possible reasons for ring & ball formation,Raw mix design,High coal ash %High liquid phaseQuality/ condition of refractoryHigh alkali feedBurner pipe conditionCooler conditionBut to study all above reasons we have to run our kiln for 20 ~ 30 days continuously, we have technique to remove big clinker balls without stopping the kiln. Vikpro

Hello GopalYou mentioned that coating comming from the inlet side...{But Your subject is different}so must check the coating status at mixing chamber and riser duct and if you have inline calciner must take inspection at venturi area.......if your both lines facing same problem then lab must take serious action about it, may be your x-ray calibration is out of order

cement kiln refractories

cement kiln refractories

Refractories play a critical, if unseen, role in both the rotary kiln lining, and the lining of the high volume static equipment areas that comprise a modern pre-calciner kiln system.The durability of the rotary kiln brick lining generally determines the duration of a kiln operating campaign. Whilst great efforts are made to ensure appropriate refractory brick materials selection, installation, deployment (zoning) and the optimisation of the kiln light-up, it is primarily the nature and stability of the subsequent kiln operation that influences rotary kiln lining life.

A large number of kilns now use alternative fuels. Many of them substitute these alternative fuels through the main kiln burner as well as in the pre-heater / pre-calciner; the chemical and heat-release changes caused by inevitable short-term fluctuations in the fuel(s) mix has a major influence on the thermal, coating and atmosphere conditions existing through the rotary kiln into the pre-calciner.Expert systems are available that help limit the influence of fuel mix fluctuations on the flame shape, but not many cement kilns are equipped with such systems. Consequently, the main influence of the use of alternative fuels is often on clinker chemistry due to the different ash compositions of individual alternative fuels.Such fuel variations may produce any or all of the following:

Much can be learned from the clinker chemistry and microscopy about the environment existing within the kiln system. The clinker mineralogy, microstructure, minor phases, macrostructure and variability can each help to define more precisely the atmosphere and process conditions existing in the rotary kiln and clinker cooler. If any of the clinker parameters are found to be outside a safe range, or potentially indicative of conditions damaging to the coating or to the kiln refractory, kiln operators can use this information to attempt to achieve safer and more stable kiln conditions, thus reducing thermal and chemical stresses on the kiln lining.

Articles like this one can provide a lot of useful material. However, reading an article or two is perhaps not the best way to get a clear picture of a complex process like cement production. To get a more complete and integrated understanding of how cement is made, do have a look at the Understanding Cement book or ebook. This easy-to-read and concise book also contains much more detail on concrete chemistry and deleterious processes in concrete compared with the website.

Almost everyone interested in cement is also concerned to at least some degree with concrete strength. This ebook describes ten cement-related characteristics of concrete that can potentially cause strengths to be lower than expected.

a case study on accretion formation in rotary kiln of dri process | springerlink

In coal-based DRI process, accretion formation inside the rotary kiln is a genuine complex problem. Accretion formation in a rotary kiln of 100tpd DRI plant has been investigated. The nature of accretion formation with respect to the charge burden and operational parameter have been discussed. High ash content in the coal and excess use of dolomite lead to accretion formation. Two different types of accretion are revealed; the major one is due to agglomeration of DRI by-products while another one is sintered product of DRI.
