First in India to Utilize Coal Fired Raw Mill HAG


for Cement Mill during Kiln stopped condition

35

Utilizing Raw Mill HAG in Cement mill when kiln


stopped condition

Raw Mill HAG located more than 250 m far from Cement Mill
Maintaining < 350 0 C gas temperature before it reaches ducting
is difficult
Installation of additional booster fan and ducting ,costs more.
Controlling the HAG outlet temperature with high CV coal is
difficult

Implemented Innovative idea

Removed RVRM booster fan impeller & Fully closed the chimney
damper
Dummy plate arranged in Raw mill inlet and cooler vent fan outlet
Running the CVRM booster fan
Coal mixed with 50 % Alternate fuel for reducing NCV
using the HAG coffee pot damper for dilution air to maintaining the
temperature < 350 0 C inside the duct

1.6 lit/Mt of PPC during kiln stopped condition


Net saving of Rs 174 lakhs/Annum

37

Increased Utilization of CPP reject water from 300 to 1500 m3

Conceptual change of reject generation from supplier driven to customer


focus and hence reject is generation cycle is synchronized with cement
mill
Communication channel developed between cement mill and CPP
through PLC
Auto starting of reject water logic was provided as soon as the Cement
mill water spray ON
Close monitoring of reject water consumption even by the top
management in the unit

Increased utilization of CPP reject water from 300 to 1500 m 3 / month

Facing heat availability problem in the raw mill grinding circuit since
beginning.

As the raw material was high in moisture it reduces the mill output. To
enhance the production we are running HAG in raw grinding circuit,
which increases the thermal and electrical energy consumption

Decided to utilize the maximum heat from cooler vent gases to RVRM
when ever the cement mill stopped condition and CVRM OPC running
condition by modifying the RVRM booster fan.

102

51
8/29/2013

Team identified scope for improvement with modification of the


Booster fan

RVRM booster fan speed increased from 990 RPM to 1064 RPM with
the help of VFD drive resulting in increasing the flow by 8.7 % and 1
MKcal / hr heat availability.
In house Modification of RVRM booster fan inlet cone portion was done
with the help of VIBCON engineers consultancy, resulting further increase
in flow by 8 % and 0.85 MKcal / hr heat availability
Due to increased heat availability HAG Running hrs were reduced and
thus reduction in cost of production.
