Rotary kilns used in cement processing are made from steel, lined with ceramic refractory material to protect the steel from the heat of the burner (1500°C/2700°F).
Knowing the status of the refractory is critical to maintain kiln performance and prevent cost intensive breakdowns.
- Detect hotspots due to refractory loss, damage or wear
- Detect abnormal operating conditions, such as baking
- Optimize and manage kiln maintenance
- Extend operational life of kiln and refractory
