what should be inspected in a rotary kiln?

Rotary kilns, like any other high-performing piece of equipment, need regular inspection and maintenance to ensure ideal operation. The list below highlights the areas of a kiln that should consistently be inspected:

Prevention is key when it comes to maintaining a rotary kiln. Regularly inspect and service the refractory, burner, seals, and alignment to keep the kiln running efficiently, and to extend the life of the kiln itself.

The rotary kiln forms the very heart of pyro-metallurgical processes, objectively determining the actual status of the kiln timeously triggers the relevant proactive corrective or preventive maintenance interventions.

Ultimately this contributes towards maximising the vessels overall effectiveness. Dickinson Group in alliance with Fives FCB, a member of the Fives Group offers a revolutionary comprehensive rotary kiln inspection program that has been streamlined to determine the complete status of a rotary kiln within 5 days (for a 3 pier Kiln).

The core parts of the inspection are done while the vessel is in operation, there are however some additional options that require relatively short stoppages (see step 8). This article will give a brief step by step overview of this rotary kiln inspection program.

An inspection while your rotary kiln is running provides you the flexibility of obtaining valuable information about your kiln without shutting down and losing production. We provide a comprehensive inspection along with recommendations for your consideration.

A typical kiln inspection while running includes a thorough visual inspection that consists of temperature measurements, noise observations and visual condition of equipment. We visually inspect the following:

Cracks periodically arise within the kilns refractory because certain areas are exposed to more direct heat. The area closest to the combustion chamber is the hottest, and that is where the refractory will become extremely dry. As a result, cracks can form, and the refractory can fall off, creating extensive damage to the kiln.

The purpose of a kiln alignment inspection is to precisely determine the drums positioning in plan and elevation view and detail the corrections required to improve the performance and operation of the kiln. Misalignment in kilns can lead to excessive forces and wear on bearings, gearing, rollers, and riding rings leading to expensive, premature failure. Carrying roller slopes are identified as well along with necessary recommendations.
