Detector for the toughest work environments in non-hazardous areas
In cement production, the heart of the system is the rotary kiln, and the corresponding cooling system that follows it. The efficient operation of these two systems together is critical in maintaining efficiency and profitability in the manufacturing process. With operating temperatures in excess of 1000°C, the measurement of important parameters, such as the level of clinker on the cooling grates, is fraught with problems. Traditional, intrusive level measurement technologies simply cannot last in such a harsh environment.
To optimize cost savings, the airflow must be regulated to the proper amount for the mass of the clinker present on the cooler grates. This requires an accurate level measurement of the clinker. Berthold’s non-contacting and non-intrusive radiometric level measurement technology provides a means of making an accurate and reliable clinker level measurement while operating outside this extreme high temperature environment. The high degree of accuracy, stability and repeatability insures high production rates, optimal efficiencies and superior product quality.
