Research projects on the subject Cement production
Optimisation of energy demand and product quality during grinding in the cement industry through the use of ceramic grinding media
The aim of the IGF project 21791N is to better understand the influence of ceramic grinding media (balls) on the comminution process and the product quality during cement grinding in ball mills. The data will serve as a basis for designing and predicting the energy requirements and behaviour of grinding plants when using ceramic grinding media.
EMSARZEM - Assessment of the use of waste incineration slag as raw material for application in the cement industry
Increasing energy efficiency in the cement industry through training by means of virtual reality (VR)
The aim of IGF project 21619 is to develop a training simulator with which learners can independently solve typical process engineering tasks within a virtual reality (VR) environment, particularly in connection with ball mills.
Investigation of the robustness of AI-applications for process optimisation in cement manufacturing
AI applications or machine learning applications such as soft sensors or assistance systems for production controllers represent promising solutions for process control and optimisation. However, this requires robust AI applications that do not jeopardise the operational safety of the complex production facilities in the cement industry.
Raw meal screening: Energy-optimised fine-rod screening of raw cement meal for the evaluation of process-relevant characteristic values
The subject of the research project is the fine-tuning of dry cement raw materials. The focus is on the influence on the electrical energy requirement during the comminution of the raw material and the thermal effects on the subsequent clinker burning process, caused by a changed raw meal granulometry.
Organic reduction on catalysts
The aim of the project is to be able to select operating parameters and catalyst materials in such a way that a maximum reduction performance takes place and the function of the catalysts is not affected. This should enable operators of cement rotary kilns, including many SMEs, to achieve a reduction in organic components without having to expect frequent failures of the SCR plant.
Method for rapid testing of the quality of flyable alternative fuels for use in the clinker burning process
As part of the research project, the German cement industry is to be provided with a utility model of a new type of apparatus for quasi-continuous incoming inspection of SRF deliveries. Based on a fast, technically robust and efficient characterization of flight capability, humidity and optically detectable features of SRF, a system shall be developed, constructed and tested in practice.
