Changing the burner nozzles and the baffle plate


a. General
b. Changing the nozzles
c. Changing the baffle plate

a. General
This maintenance instruction describes how to change nozzles and the baffle plate of
the rotary kiln burner.

NOTE!
All nozzles have a right-hand thread

In order to ensure easy assembly of the nozzles and prevent wear of the threads, all
threads should be coated with lubricating spray or paste. The compound used must be
resistant to high temperatures (for example: OKS white allround paste 250/2501).
Due to the conical nozzle design the nozzles have to be installed from the inside to the
outside.
Special tools
A special tool, one or more nozzle wrenches, are required to change the nozzle. The
nozzle wrenches are designed separately for each burner and are included in the
shipment.

Setting device for nozzle adjustment
Coal channels and gas channels can be equipped with individual devices for axial
adjustment of the relevant nozzle. If so, put the nozzle into the maintenance position
using the setting device before changing the nozzle.
For the coal nozzle, position 0 is
the scale setting for maintenance
(All non-adjustable nozzles are
mounted flush with the baffle plate)

For the gas nozzle, position S is


the scale setting for maintenance
(The gas nozzle is pushed forward
for easier installation)

b. Changing the nozzles


Procedure

CAUTION!
Risk of injury due to falling equipment!
Due to its weight, a falling nozzle can cause serious injury.
Therefore:
- Prior to work on the nozzle, secure it against falling.
Disassembly
1. Secure the nozzle with a suitable lifting device against falling.
2. To change the nozzle, use the correct nozzle wrench.
Place the bolts on the nozzle wrench into the corresponding holes on the nozzle.
Loosen the nozzle by turning the wrench.
3. When the nozzle is loosened, unscrew it manually.

Fig. 12.2: Use the nozzle wrench to loosen the


nozzle

Fig. 12.3: Unscrew nozzle manually

Assembly
1. Secure the nozzle with a suitable lifting device against falling.
2. Manually screw the nozzle in.
3. Place the bolts on the nozzle wrench into the corresponding holes on the nozzle.
Tighten the nozzle with the nozzle wrench.

c. Changing the baffle plate


To remove the baffle plate, the inner-most nozzle must be removed. The baffle plate is
held in place between the nozzle and bolt.
The images below show the nozzle head with the inner-most nozzle already
disassembled.
Procedure
1. Remove the inner-most nozzle, based on the description above.
2. Remove the baffle plate.

Fig. 12.4: Inner-most nozzle, disassembled

a. General
Two executions of the burner jacket tube are possible:
Divisible execution (consisting of the front and back jacket tube)
Non-divisible execution (jacket tube in one piece).
Points 12.7b to 12.7e are valid for the divisible jacket tube execution
Points 12.7f and 12.7g are valid for the "non-divisible jacket tube execution

CAUTION!
Risk of injury due to hot jacket tube.
Contact with the hot jacket tube can lead to serious injuries.
Therefore:
- Before disassembling the jacket tube, cool the burner to
ambient temperature.
- Secure burner on the burner trolley or take other measures
to have the burner in a secure position for assembly /
disassembly of the burner jacket tube.

b. Removing front part divisible burner jacket tube


The front part of divisible jacket tube can be independently removed from the rear part
of the jacket tube. The front part of the jacket tube has a length of approximately
1200 mm.
The essential advantage of this execution is that only the front part has to be removed.
This offers advantages if:
Little space is available for assembly / disassembly
The front part of the refractory is subject to highest wear
The burner jacket tube is particularly long
To keep the time to replace the front jacket tube to a minimum, a prelined front jacket
tube should be available.

with 2 or 3 fastening devices. The description is valid for both
executions.
1) The MAS-swirl setting has be in position 1 or 2.
2) Loosen the hex nut (1) including the lock nut. Unscrew both nuts back to the
fastening lever (2).
Use a M30
wrench.
The maximum
allowed torque is
120 NM

c. Placing front part divisible burner jacket tube


1) To ensure complete sealing between front and rear part of the jacket tube, make
sure that the sealing surface of both parts as well as the packing cords are
absolutely clean. If the packing cord is damaged, it has to be replaced.
2) The front part of the jacket tube has to be placed centric with great care. The front
part of the jacket tube is pushed back until the gap between front and back part is
10-20 mm (see the Detail "B" in fig. 12.7 above). Damage to the MAS hoses, the
flame setting device, and the packing cord must be avoided.
3) The hexagonal nut (1) including lock nut must be screwed back to the fastening
lever (2). Push the connecting rod (5) with the clamping lever in the direction of the
nozzle head, until the hex nut (1) is in line with the guidance pipe (4).
4) Turn the fastening lever (2) into the locked position (see View Z in fig. 12.7
above).
5) Screw the hex nut (1) in the direction of the nozzle head tighten it. The front jacket
tube is brought into its final position by the connecting rod(s).

NOTE!
The maximum allowed torque of the hex nuts (1) is 50 NM.

6) After the assembly is complete, fix the hex nuts (1) with the locking nuts. Ensure that
all the clamping levers (2) are in operating position.

h. Replacing packing cords


During the change of the jacket tube (both divisible and non-divisible execution),
replace the packing cord (29).
To remove the packing cord, first remove the clamping sleeves 2,5 x 20mm (29A).
Cut the new packing cord (made of fiberglass/graphite 10 x 10 mm) at an angle and
place it. Fix the new packing cord with the clamping sleeves.
Also replace the packing cord (30) at the divisible execution every time it is
disassembled. It is replaced by a packing cord (12 x 12 mm made out of
fiberglass/graphite), which is also cut diagonally at the ends.
The packing cord helps avoid leakages. Replace it with great care!

As the mechanical stress between the nozzle


ring (1) and the front jacket tube is low, they are
connected by an intermittend weld. This allows
the nozzle ring to be replaced easily and
without damaging the recess for centering.
