Consequently. the cement clinker has to be cooled off so quickly that the tricalcium silicate does not disintegrate. cement clinker is produced in rotary kiln systems with kiln feed preheaters located upstream and clinker coolers located downstream (for other process techniques.

a distinction is made as to whether they are operated with a grate-type preheater or with a cyclone preheater. In the case of the rotary coolers or satellite coolers. the combustion air is preheated to about 600°C to 1000°C [1112°F to 1832°F] in a clinker cooler located downstream from the sintering process. . afterwards. 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. In order to be able to reach such high temperatures. satellite coolers and rotary coolers are employed as clinker coolers in the cement industry. and it is then fed to the rotary kiln burner as so-called secondary air. the gas is once again blown from the top to the bottom through the moist granules in the dry chamber. 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. the clinker that drops out of the rotary kiln after the sintering operation is cooled in a crosscurrent. which usually consist of 10 satellite tubes attached around the periphery of the rotary kiln. After the coarse dust has been separated out. The process gases coming from the rotary kiln flow through the cyclone preheater from the bottom to the top. The cyclone preheater essentially consists of four to five cyclone stages arranged one above the other in a tower that is 50 to 100 meters high. The dry.

The kiln feed entering the rotary kiln reaches temperatures of 820°C to 850°C [1508°F to 1562°F] at precalcining degrees of up to about 90%. the waste gases have a temperature of around 290°C to 400°C [554°F to 752°F].

Figure 2 shows a schematic representation of a cement rotary kiln system with a cyclone preheater and waste gas utilization. Upon leaving the cyclone preheater. the waste gases of the grate-type preheater have a temperature of about 90°C to 120°C [194°F to 248°F]. the process gas from the rotary kiln has a temperature of about 1000°C to 1200°C [1832°F to 2192°F].

Since about 1970. and from there to the secondary burner. the further development of kiln systems has led to the process involving precalcining. In the case of new systems with cyclone preheaters. new systems with cyclone preheaters are provided with an enlarged combustion chamber between the rotary kiln inlet and the lowermost cyclone. This method is employed with old systems in particular. that is to say. the amount of energy supplied is such that 70% to 95% of the calcium carbonate of the kiln feed has already decarbonated by the time it enters the rotary kiln.May 1992 Specification Vt 10 Page 13 Figure 3 . however.

Dust as well as the kiln feed in the preheater can also contain highly volatile compounds such as. for example. SO3. even over shorter periods of time. An interim result should be determined every 4 to 6 hours in order to obtain information about the time course of the mass flow. the examinations should be performed in the delivery state.

Here. The following relationship applies: Fuels: Fuels are weighed on industrial scales which have been previously adjusted. shipping scales). . a second clinker weighing procedure is not necessary if it is ensured that all of the dust mass flows remain constant. the fuel energy consumption is usually balanced by means of a comparison of the energy output with the energy input (see Section 4. Kiln feed: The kiln feed mass flow is calculated. Dust: Dust is preferably weighed on calibrated scales (for example. If weighing is not possible.3). 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. It results from the component balance of the sum of the non-volatile substances (see Section 4.1). also see the VDZ Specification titled “Dust quantity measurements in cement plants” [17]). However. care should be taken to ensure that the cleaning of the filter is switched to continuous operation before the dust is discharged.1.4.

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. only possible if clean gases of the kiln can be detected in their entirety. c) air balance of the cooler (often the most precise way with continuous volume flow measurement of the cooler vent air after the dust removal). deflection of the gas upstream from the measuring site. b) calculation on the basis of a CO2 and an H2O balance of the kiln system (imprecise when secondary fuels are used) [30]. substantial pressure fluctuations or a high amount of dust [for instance. expensive but accurate). this is often very imprecise). The bypass gas is measured with a pitot tube after admixing the cooling air. There are three methods for measuring the volume flow of the cooler intake air: a) inlet nozzles (often very imprecise). b) fan characteristic curves (only possible for fans with adjustable rotational speeds). c) conversion of the clean gas volume flow to raw gas conditions using an O2 or CO2 balance or an H2O balance (additional gas analysis and measurement of the volume flow in the clean gas is necessary.

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.

which are present as alkali sulfate: The total alkali fraction (A) results from the conversion of the fraction of potassium oxide into the equivalent sodium fraction according to the following equation: The following applies as an approximation for the melt phase (S): (for ϑ S = 1338°C [2440.4°F] and TM < 1.38).38).May 1992 Specification Vt 10 Page 102 The sulfatization degree (SG) indicates the percentage of alkalis in the clinker.

Whereas the type of the compounds depends primarily on the chemical composition of the kiln feed. provide information about the preparation of the raw material mixture and about the conditions during the burning and cooling of the clinker.5 Phase composition The phase composition of the clinker can be calculated on the basis of the values of the chemical analysis. the calculation only provides an approximation of the actual clinker composition [7]. xMgO = 0. according to equations (54) through (60). constitution and distribution of the clinker compounds.02.May 1992 Specification Vt 10 Page 103 xMgO enters into the formulas with xMgO = 0.02 at the maximum. 6.6 Microscopic examination The microscopic examination of the clinker provides information about the type.
