kiln in cement industry

Cement Industry Overview

The cement industry has boosted efficiency by concentrating new capital investment in plants that use the dry process of cement manufacture, and by phasing out operations that rely on the more energy-intensive wet process. Since 1974, the number of wet process kilns has dropped from 234 to 25 -- a decline of 89 percent -- while the number of dry process kilns has only been reduced from 198 to ...

ENERGY AND EXERGY ANALYSIS OF THE KILN SYSTEM IN THE ...

Cement industry is an energy intensive industry. Theoretically, producing one tonne of clinker requires a minimum on 1.6 GJ heat (Liu et al., 1999). The specific thermal energy consumption in cement industries in India varies from 2.95 GJ to 4 GJ/tonne of clinker. The higher specific energy consumption is due to the harder raw material and poor quality of fuel. In this study, the energy ...

Possibilities and effects of using waste materials …

The use of waste as alternative fuel in the cement industry began in the 1970s, and the number of cement factories using alternative fuels and materials has since grown worldwide. The waste treatment process development has particularly accelerated in Germany, as well as in many other EU member states, since the adoption of the Landfill Directive in 1999, as well as tight biodegradable waste ...

The cement kiln - Understanding Cement

Manufacturing - the cement kiln. Most Portland cement is made in a rotary kiln. Basically, this is a long cylinder rotating about its axis once every minute or two. The axis is inclined at a slight angle, the end with the burner being lower. The rotation causes the raw meal to gradually pass along from where it enters at the cool end, to the hot end where it eventually drops out and cools ...

Use of Alternate Fuels in the Cement Industry

The cement industry can easily use bulk rice husk from mills as kiln fuel, though transportation and storage may cause problems. Rice husk has one more advantage for the cement industry. Rice husk, after burning, produces about 20% ash. Rice husk ash has high pozzolanic activity, and so can easily be used to produce good quality blended cement. It is an excellent replacement for fly ash, slag ...
