Installation of Refractory Materials

For good lifetimes of the refractory materials in the clinker production line, a faultless installation is an important prerequisite. Even though the installation is carried out in most companies by external companies, supervision should be done by trained employees. This seminar should help the participants to be able to better evaluate the refractory installation and thereby recognise deficits at an early stage.

Wear of Refractory Materials

The refractory lining of a cement plant is subject to wear, which can be typical to abnormal depending on the process conditions. A premature wear of the refractory lining usually results in an unexpected loss of production, which is associated with high costs. In order to be able to better assess the reasons for the wear that has occurred, the course gives an overview of the types of wear in the cement plant and their interpretation. In addition, details are shown how the wear behaviour of the refractory lining in the cement plant changes as a result of the use of alternative fuels.

Energy Balances and Efficiency

Kiln and mill examinations are carried out in order to gather data on the performance and to validate warranty performance data such as the output, the energy consumption, input/output ratio or the efficiency. They also provide a reliable foundation for the optimisation of individual operational system components, the cement quality, the reduction of emissions levels and for assessment of material cycles and coating formations.

Basic Course Process Control

The SIMULEX® cement plant simulator for training plant supervisors, foremen, production personnel, control room operators and young engineers was developed by KHD Humboldt Wedag AG in cooperation with VDZ. For over ten years VDZ has been using the simulator within the framework of training courses and has been continually supporting the further development of the system with practical input from the industry. As a result, the simulator provides a realistic reconstruction of a production plant with a state-of-the-art supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA).

Firing Alternative Fuels: Opportunities, impacts on process, optimisation and limitations (Training course 2)

VDZ offers an online course that covers all the relevant aspects concerning the use of alternative fuels in cement plants. Starting with the main political drivers such as the circular economy and the European waste fuel strategy, the training will give a detailed view of the current state-of-the-art-situation with regard to the use of alternative fuels in the EU. In this context, pre-treatment and suitable quality control of alternative fuels will be also explained and presented. A main focus will be given to the drivers and barriers of the use of alternative fuels within the burning process. Relevant aspects will be explained and discussed with the participants. Finally, technical feasibilities, case studies and possible optimisation potential will be part of the training course. This training course provides four half-day training sessions in a webinar format. This unique format enables the employees to combine an adequate learning pace with their daily work in the plant.
