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.

Crash 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).

Plant Maintenance and Refractories Course

Our Plant Maintenance and Refractories Course covers all topics concerning the high efficiency and availability of a cement plant’s key machinery. Measurement of rotary kilns and ball mills as well as independent expertise in mechanical maintenance and inspections are also among the major aspects. We also provide an extensive know-how transfer on high quality refractory kiln brick lining materials and installation including their relation to mechanical failure.
