Cement Kilns: Precalciner kilns

Precalciner cement kilns. As with conventional suspension preheater kilns, the gases leaving the top of the preheater are used for drying raw materials. Some heat is still wasted, because rawmills tend to run intermittently, since they are always designed with "overtaking capacity" to avoid restricting the …

Portland cement

The most common use for Portland cement is in the production of concrete. Concrete is a composite material consisting of aggregate (gravel and sand), cement, and water. As a construction material, concrete can be cast in almost any shape desired, and once hardened, can become a structural (load bearing) element.

Hazardous Waste Fuels and the Cement Kilns

The results is that nearly all candidate waste streams move on a disposal fee basis unless part of the material has recoverable value as a solvent or can be reused as a material rather than processed for fuel use. It is estimated that in excess of 200 million gallons of hazardous waste fuels were used in cement kilns during the last year.

Cement Production

Modern day cement is an unusual industrial product produced in huge quantities in special plants that can produce nothing else. It is produced by a combination of unusual unit operations involving mining, very fine scale blending of raw materials, very high temperature clinkering reactions, controlled cooling, grinding, blending, and finally shipping under controlled conditions.

End-of-life Tyres as an Alternative Fuel (TDF) in Cement Kilns

End-of-life tyres are a challenging type of waste since they are difficult to shred and are expensive to treat and get rid of. However, tyre-derived fuel (TDF) is an extremely good alternative to the traditional fuels used in cement kilns, like oil, coal, and petroleum coke. Here's how TDF can be used for heating cement kilns, and the solutions it can provide.
