scanclimber by tractel - cement & lime industry

Scanclimber products are suitable for a wide range of industrial and infrastructure construction and maintenance applications. Products can be manufactured according to the specific requirements of each site, guaranteeing product functionality and long service life.

Cement and lime is combined to produce concrete which hardens to form a strong building material. Burnt lime though is produced separately in a lime kiln which is used in different industries like steel, paper and pulp, mining, etc.

Burnt lime production requires high temperatures exceeding over 900C. The whole process is carried out under extreme conditions. With such conditions, these plants need equipment which helps in efficient material handling and labor transportation at certain heights. In addition to that, this equipment must be able to withstand dust, moisture and warmth ensuring safety. An industrial hoist can be a feasible solution which could be used for many purposes like,

Ecocem manufactures environment-friendly, CO2 free cement, in several European countries. ORCEM, a subsidiary of Ecocem in the Netherlands, acquired a Scanclimber hoist to service and maintain the separation process plant in Moerdijk. In order for personnel and materials to reach the upper working floor, which is at a height of 24 meters, ORCEM invested in a new Scanclimber SC300K industrial hoist with a lifting capacity of 320 kg and the ability to transport up to 4 people.

cement/lime industry spray technologies | lechler us

For many years, nozzles and spray systems for environmental gas conditioning have been an integral part of our product portfolio. Our constant communication and knowledge with operators of cement/lime plants mean that we are always in tune with the latest developments. Extreme environmental conditions exist in the production of cement and it is very important to use materials that are highly resistant to these types of settings. For this reason, Lechler nozzles provide minimal wear because we use high quality components for valve skid units and systems.

lime saturation factor - cement plant optimization

Lime Saturation Factor (LSF)is the ratio of the actual amount of lime in raw meal/clinker to the theoretical lime required by the major oxides (SiO2, Al2O3and Fe2O3) in the raw mix or clinker. It is practically impossible to complete the reaction to 100%, in a reactor like rotary kiln, therefore there will always be some unreacted lime (CaOf) known as free lime. The amount of free lime in clinker indicates incomplete burning and needs to be monitored. When coal is used as fuel, the ash content and its composition should be considered in raw mix design. LSF of clinker lies in the range of 92-98. Higher LSF at controlled free lime content translates to better quality of clinker (high C3S), difficult clinkerization, high heat consumption.

Silica Modulus (SM)is the ratio of content of oxides of silica to the oxides of alumina and iron. SM signifies the ratio of solid content to the melt content. Therefore, when SM is too high, nodulization becomes weak and clinkerization reaction (C3S formation) rate slows down, kiln becomes dusty and difficult to operate. While as when SM is too low, more melt is formed in kiln, issues like thick kiln coating, kiln melting, snowman formation in cooler are more prone. Normal range of SM is 2.3-2.7.

Alumina Modulus (AM)is the ratio of content alumina oxide to iron oxide. AM signifies the temperature at which liquid formation starts, the nature of liquid formed and the color of clinker formed. The lowest temperature is obtained at AM equal to 1.6, which is the optimum for clinker formation and nodulization. Higher the AM, lighter the color of clinker (cement). Normal range of SM is 1-2.5.

We have collaboration with technology leaders like LEAN AUTOMATION for Industry 4.0 to facilitate three pillars for cement plant optimization at one window. Technology is a great enabler for optimization, But we need to update continuously the knowledge and skill set of front line action takers through capacity development training. So that the cultural transformation will take place to embrace newer possibilities and overcome skepticism.
