A Rotary Kiln is one of the most critical plant items in the cement making process. It is often a vital requirement for operators to have a constant view of the kiln’s internal operations on screen in the control room, in order to identify ring build ups, blockages or other upset conditions at an early stage.
The LYNX high temperature camera systems are extensively used for cement kiln viewing applications, owing to their robust build quality and excellent picture quality. Operators can view conditions inside the kiln from the comfort of the control room, avoiding the need to go to the kiln hood to check on the process.
For higher level kiln control, plants can use the Mirion SPYROMETER system to give multiple zone temperature measurement inside the kiln. The Spyrometer system combines a highly accurate, two-color pyrometer system to give the operator the ability to measure temperatures inside the kiln. Burning Zone Temperatures can be measured to a very high level of accuracy and repeatability, making the system ideal for integration into a closed loop control system. Refractory temperatures immediately inside the kiln can also be measured and monitored for kiln maintenance purposes.
