The original rotary kilns of short length had very poor thermal efficiencies owing to high exhaust-gas temperatures. Increasing the kiln length (and hence preheating the charge) tends to reduce the exit-gas temperature and improve efficiencies. Further improvement in efficiency is achieved by use of preheaters, heat exchangers and coolers.
A Revolutionary Kiln Design ... Some of this energy loss is the result of an improper gas-air ratio, inadequate fuel supply, the thermal mass of kiln materials, and/or poor kiln insulation. Still, much of of the firing cost is expended in the heating of cool air coming into the burners. ... The Kiln Book. Keramos, Bassett, CA, 1973. Rhodes, Daniel.
Plants that burn waste fuels enjoy a negative fuel cost (they are paid by industries needing to dispose of materials that have energy content and can be safely disposed of in the cement kiln thanks to its high temperatures and longer retention times). As a result, the inefficiency of the wet process is an advantage—to the manufacturer.

Like most kilns, the sources of heat loss are associated with the kiln shell heat loss and the discharge streams, so heat recuperation is important to improve the kiln's thermal efficiency. Coke kilns are especially vulnerable to heat generation as they are designed to process carbon, a combustible material, with exothermic heat generation ...
Heat exchange in a rotary kiln may be by conduction, convection and radiation, in descending order of efficiency. In low-temperature processes, and in the cooler parts of long kilns lacking preheaters, the kiln is often furnished with internal heat exchangers to encourage heat exchange between the …
Advantages of Tunnel Kiln Tunnel kiln has a number of advantages. 1, Continuous production, short production cycle, high yield, high quality. 2, It adopts countercurrent principle, and therefore high thermal efficiency, fuel economy, because the use of heat and waste heat to maintain very good, so it saves fuel.
Dry Kilns with Multistage Pre-heaters and Pre-calcination Whenever economically feasible a wet process kiln can be converted to a state-of-the art dry process production facility that includes either a multi-stage preheater, or a multi-stage pre-heater and a pre-calciner.
This optimisation of thermal efficiency allows a large output to be produced by a relatively small kiln. The kiln solely performs the sintering process, for which the rolling action of the rotary kiln is indispensible. A number of distinct advantages of air-separate precalciners has resulted in their almost universal use in modern cement plants.
With its structural soundness and greater thermal efficiency, the IFB proved an ideal choice for the tunnel kiln application. By using these lightweight materials rather than traditional firebrick and then backing them up with ceramic fiber materials, Thermal Ceramics now has a kiln with a cold face temperature of 148°F in the firing zone.

Many problems can also occur in lime kilns including: low thermal efficiency, high fuel consumption, ringing, balling, dusting, refractory and chain damage, poor lime quality and air emissions. In the causticizing plant, problems often encountered are overliming, poor mud settling and washing efficiency, high sodium and low
CEMENT ROTARY KILN Questions & Answers Question-1: What is the maximum continuous shell temperature a kiln stands without permanent damage to the shell? Answer-1: The maximum recommended kiln shell temperature varies by plant, by country and by kiln manufacturer, despite the fact that most kiln shells are made of low alloy carbon steel.

The degree of calcination of feed entering the kiln rises to around 90-95%, and this defines the 70% fuel limit - any more fuel will risk the formation of clinker in the preheater, and this must be avoided at all costs. This optimisation of thermal efficiency allows a large output to be produced by a relatively small kiln.
Increasing Thermal Efficiency. To improve the thermal efficiency of the kiln, a chain system is installed in the feed end. The chains pick up the lime sludge and expose it to the hot gases. The chains also absorb heat from the hot gases, transferring this heat when they again dip into the wet material.
Because of the log's heat storage capability, its large mass may result in better overall energy efficiency in some climates than in others. Logs act like "thermal batteries" and can, under the right circumstances, store heat during the day and gradually release it at night.
In cement kilns, NO x emissions are formed during fuel combustion by two primary mechanisms: ! Oxidation of molecular nitrogen present in the combustion air which is termed thermal NO x formation, and! Oxidation of nitrogen compounds present in the fuel which is termed fuel NO x formation. Often the raw material feed to the kiln may also contain a
The wet process kilns operating in Europe are generally expected to be converted to dry process kiln systems when renewed, as are semi-dry and semi-wet processes kiln systems. On average, pyroprocessing systems in the EU and US operate at below 35% thermal efficiency, which is rather low.
