Cement Kiln Mercury (Hg) Emission Issues

Not all of the observations made regarding mercury emissions and controls for those systems can be directly applied to cement kilns. Further, the unique operating environment inside a cement kiln may present innovative and cost effective control methods for cement kilns that are impossible or impractical to apply to coal fired boilers.

Coal Grinding - Cement Plant Optimization

Drying of moisture in coal is achieved normally by ducting part of the kiln exhaust gas through the mill with inlet temperatures of up to 300°C. Inert kiln exhaust gases with oxygen content of about 3-5% are most suitable for the intended purpose due to high risk of fire/explosion in fine coal.

Cement Kilns: Firing systems

"Firing" in cement industry parlance is the supply of heat to a kiln by use of a burning fuel. Throughout the early history of the industry, fuel was added to static kilns in lump form, pretty much in its "as-received" state. With the advent of the rotary kiln, it was necessary to develop sophisticated means of preparing the fuel and injecting it into the kiln system.
