In the case of the rotary coolers or satellite coolers. and it is then fed to the rotary kiln burner as so-called secondary air. satellite coolers and rotary coolers are employed as clinker coolers in the cement industry. raw meal mixture is fed into the waste gases prior to entering the uppermost cyclone stage. An intermediate gas fan blows the process gas of the rotary kiln from the top to the bottom through the layer of granules in the hot chamber. and it is once again separated from the gas in the cyclones. Grate-type preheaters consist of a traveling grate on which the kiln feed that has been made into granules or briquettes travels through a closed tunnel that is divided into a hot chamber and a dry chamber. depending on the clinker output. a distinction is made as to whether they are operated with a grate-type preheater or with a cyclone preheater. the clinker that drops out of the rotary kiln after the sintering operation is cooled in a crosscurrent. the gas is once again blown from the top to the bottom through the moist granules in the dry chamber.

Figure 2 shows a schematic representation of a cement rotary kiln system with a cyclone preheater and waste gas utilization.

As a function of the process. the process gas from the rotary kiln has a temperature of about 1000°C to 1200°C [1832°F to 2192°F]. depending on the number of stages and capacity flow ratio.Schematic representation of a cement rotary kiln system with cyclone preheaters and waste gas utilization.May 1992 Specification Vt 10 Page 12 Both with cyclone preheater systems and with grate-type preheater systems.

The combustion air for the secondary burner can be conveyed through the rotary kiln. For this purpose.Schematic representation of a cement rotary kiln system with a grate-type preheater. the further development of kiln systems has led to the process involving precalcining. the combustion air is conveyed in a separate gas duct.

the dust mass flow is determined by means of an isokinetic partial stream suction (in this context.May 1992 Specification Vt 10 Page 26 In the case of immediately consecutive kiln performance tests. The following relationship applies: Fuels: Fuels are weighed on industrial scales which have been previously adjusted. a second clinker weighing procedure is not necessary if it is ensured that all of the dust mass flows remain constant. also see the VDZ Specification titled “Dust quantity measurements in cement plants” [17]). .1. For this reason. However. shipping scales). Kiln feed: The kiln feed mass flow is calculated. care should be taken to ensure that the cleaning of the filter is switched to continuous operation before the dust is discharged. It results from the component balance of the sum of the non-volatile substances (see Section 4. Translator’s note: See Section 8 for the list of abbreviations used in the formulas.3). Here. If weighing is not possible. Dust: Dust is preferably weighed on calibrated scales (for example.1.1). the precision levels achieved in this manner are often not sufficient for evaluating the kiln system. the fuel energy consumption is usually balanced by means of a comparison of the energy output with the energy input (see Section 4.4.

There are three methods for measuring the volume flow of the cooler intake air: a) inlet nozzles (often very imprecise). There are three methods for measuring the raw gas volume flow: a) direct measurement with a pitot tube (in the case of unfavorable measuring conditions. b) calculation on the basis of a CO2 and an H2O balance of the kiln system (imprecise when secondary fuels are used) [30]. expensive but accurate).

Evaluation of the cement clinker

As a rule, new systems are only examined once the clinker properties and thus also the cement properties have been achieving the desired quality requirements for quite some time. In contrast, kiln performance tests with old systems can also serve to optimize the quality of the cement and clinker.

6.1

Degree of burning

The degree of burning of the cement clinker is usually monitored on the basis of the bulk density (weight per unit volume) of a narrow particle range, for instance, 5 to 7 mm, whose values lie between 1.2 and 1.6 kg/dm³. The bulk density, however, is not only dependent on the degree of burning, but also on the chemical composition and on the porosity of the clinker. Moreover, the content of free CaO also provides information about the degree of burning.

6.2

Particle-size distribution

The coarse and fines fractions of the clinker (for example, < 2 mm and > 25 mm) provide information about the kiln operation and the clinker quality. They are ascertained by means of sieve analysis.

6.3

Grindability

The grindability of the clinker provides information about the necessary work in the cement mill. It is primarily tested with the device according to Zeisel.

6.4

Chemical composition

The chemical composition yields the lime standard (KSt), the silica ratio (SM), the alumina/iron ratio (TM), the sulfatization degree (SG), the total alkali fraction (A) and the melt phase fraction (S). The lime standard indicates the content of CaO actually present in the raw material mixture or clinker as a percentage of the maximum CaO content that can be bound to SiO2, Al2O3 and Fe2O3 under industrial burning and cooling conditions. Several formulas, which do not differ markedly from each other, are commonly employed to calculate the lime standard. According to F.M. Lea and T.W. Parker, for example, the following applies [7]:

The silica modulus is the ratio of silicon dioxide to the sum of aluminum oxide and iron oxide. The following applies:

Since the silicon dioxide is primarily bound in the solid phases tricalcium silicate and dicalcium silicate at the sintering temperature, but since aluminum oxide and iron oxide are present in the melt, the silica modulus refers to the solid-to-liquid ratio in the sintering zone of the cement kiln. Generally speaking, the silica modulus lies between SM = 1.8 and SM = 3.0, most frequently and most advantageously between SM = 2.3 and SM = 2.8. The alumina/iron ratio (TM) is the ratio of the aluminum oxide content to the iron oxide content. The following applies:

It provides information about the quantity ratio of calcium aluminate to calcium aluminate ferrite and consequently about the clinker melt. With clinker having a commonly employed composition, this value lies between 1.5 and 4.0. With an alumina/iron ratio of 0.638, the calculation indicates that all of the aluminum oxide contained in the clinker is bound as calcium aluminate ferrite having the assumed composition 4 CaO · Al2O3 · Fe2O3.
