counteracting ring formation in rotary kilns | mdx

We developed a numerical combustion model that revealed in our case study that rings are typically formed in zones of maximal radiative heat transfer. This local overheating causes the overproduction of the liquid phase of the granular material that tends to stick to the oven's wall and to form rings.

To counteract this phenomenon, we propose to increase the amount of secondary air injected to cool the oven. Experimental validation at the plant has repeatedly shown that this solution is indeed effective. For the first time in years, the kiln has been operating without unscheduled shut-downs, resulting in a monthly five-digits cost saving. The above mentioned model was developed with STAR-CCM+.

cementing the future of rotary kilns through simulation and intelligent design exploration | simcenter

On a recent trail run along the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains near my home, I ran alongside the beautiful Lexington Reservoir. Curious to learn about why and when the reservoir was constructed, I got back home and looked up the information. As I read through the text, it got me thinking about other reservoirs and dams that I had visited, the Hoover Dam in particular. Did you know that the amount of cement that went into building the Hoover Dam is enough to pave a standard highway 16 feet wide, from San-Francisco to New York City [1]? While I continued with my online refresher on cement, I learned that there were three major developments in the manufacturing process that led to modern Portland cement [2]: the development of rotary kiln, addition of gypsum to control setting, and the use of ball mills to grind clinker and raw materials. With over a billion tonnes of cement being made per year [3], one could say that the rotary cement kilns are the heart of this production process.

The mention of rotary kilns quickly made me put my combustion hat on and sparked an interest in me to learn more about the latest efforts that have gone into addressing the design and performance of these systems from the standpoint of environment sustainability, operational efficiency, cost reduction, and innovation. Simply described, a rotary kiln is a long cylindrical drum that is installed horizontally, at a slight incline, and is slowly rotated about its axis. Raw materials that are to be processed are fed from one end and move along the length of the kiln as the drum rotates. The material gets heated by the hot gases created by the flames from the installed burners, and eventually exits through the other end of the drum before being cooled down.

Figure. 1 A typical rotary kiln used in the cement Industry [courtesy KFS] These systems are quite versatile and are not just used for the cement industry. They are used for processing raw materials and feedstocks via thermal processing or calcination in the lime, cement, metallurgical, pulp and paper industries, and are also used as incinerators for treating hazardous wastes. They can operate on a wide variety of fuels such as coal, biomass, heavy fuel oil, or natural gas and have burners specifically designed for multi-fuel use depending on the industry they cater to.

Figure 2. (a) A multi-fuel (gas/solid/biomass) lime kiln burner, (b) multi-fuel (gas/liquid/petcoke) pulp and paper burner (c) light weight aggregate kiln burner (courtesy KFS)Kilns are huge consumers of energy and are identified as a stationary source that emits more than 25 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOx) per year [4] due to the high flame temperatures encountered in these systems that create favorable conditions for the formation of NOx. The increasingly stringent requirements for emissions control across the globe are forcing equipment manufactures and companies operating them to develop new and cost effective ways of minimizing/controlling emissions. In terms of the NOx control strategies that are applicable to the lime or cement industry, one could either focus on the combustion process itself to lower NOx, or one could employ post combustion control approaches to reduce the NOx formed during the combustion process. Examples of combustion control approaches include using low NOx burners and low NOx pre-calciners, using staged combustion, through mid-kiln firing, or through process optimization, in which, the amount of fuel being fired or excess air being supplied is optimized to maximize thermal efficiency and system performance.

The most common post combustion control approaches, also known as secondary methods for controlling NOx, include Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR), and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). The SNCR process involves the injection of ammonia in the form of ammonia water or urea solution in the flue-gas, at a suitable temperature to convert NOx to N2. While the SCR process adds ammonia or urea in the presence of a catalyst to selectively reduce NOx emissions from the exhaust gases. Although SCR has been used extensively for gas turbines, internal combustion engines, and fossil fuel fired utility boilers, it has been less commonly used for cement kilns. One possible reason for the lack of widespread adoption of SCR for the cement kilns is due to the blockage of the catalyst under high dust environments.

The SNCR has been an attractive NOx control methodology for kilns as it requires lesser capital expenditure. However, the operational costs can become high for systems that are not operating optimally. An SNCR systems performance in cement or lime kilns depends on the temperature (Figure 3), residence time, reagent injection rate, turbulence or the degree of mixing between the injected reagent and the combustion gases, oxygen content, and baseline NOx levels in the kiln. The effectiveness of the SNCR process is strongly dependent on the gas temperature. The process is relatively ineffective at temperatures below 800 oC and above 1150 oC. At temperatures below 800 oC, excessive amounts of ammonia are released to the atmosphere through the stack because of incomplete reagent dissociation, and at higher temperature, the reactions favor NOx formation and significantly higher reagent injection rates are required to meet the target NOx levels. The SNCR system is typically installed in the preheater of a lime kiln or the pre-calciner of a cement kilns as illustrated in Figure 4.

Schematic of rotary lime kiln and preheater The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to study the design and performance of these systems is a cost effective alternative to expensive and time-consuming field tests. One recent case study of interest is that done by KFS [6] in which they carried out combustion and SNCR modeling of a rotary kiln with preheater in a lime plant using Simcenter STAR-CCM+. KFS has developed a methodology where they combine the combustion process optimization in the kiln along with SNCR optimization for cost effective, site specific NOx control. The methodology consists of three main steps:

In order to help improve the NOx reduction process effectiveness, a design exploration study was undertaken for the preheater geometry, wherein, a number of injector configurations were investigated. The injector positions and the total number of injectors were varied to identify an optimum configuration that could achieve the desired NOx reduction with minimum urea slippage. The best design resulted in approximately 60% NOx reduction of the baseline furnace value with a urea slippage of less than 1 ppm.

Limestone, which was previously finely ground and mixed with clay, is heated to over 1,000 degrees Celsius in a rotary kiln so the raw materials partly fuse. The resulting clinker then has to be cooled in a carefully controlled process. Both steps are energy-intensive. Since some low-voltage motors in the cooling system had reached the end of their service life after years of use, Hanson Cement brought Siemens on board as its long-term partner who had already successfully completed modernization projects at the companys Purfleet and Ribblesdale facilities. The goal: a comprehensive, energy-efficient solution for the cement plant in Ketton. A clever approach The key criterion here was to eliminate energy guzzlers in the production process. Hanson Cement and Siemens focused their attention on the low-voltage motors in the cooling phase following the rotary kiln. The fans had to run at full power and then be braked manually during the sensitive cooling process, resulting in a constant waste of energy. Siemens service experts pursued this lead and went one step further. and the digital transformation Taking another approach, they not only wanted to produce sustainably with greater energy efficiency, but also ensure operating reliability. Every single day of unplanned downtime at Hanson Cements Ketton plant costs a small fortune. The digital transformation of the plants critical drive systems was to play a key role here.

Thanks to the energy savings achieved by upgrading the cooling system to variable speed with the new low-voltage motors and the SINAMICS G150 frequency converters, the investment made by Hanson Cement paid for itself after just a few months apart from the fact that the company now saves around 711 tons of CO2 a year by using less energy. Not only is Hanson Cement slashing its annual energy bills by roughly 86,000 but the company is assured that the connected drive systems are directly and efficiently monitored via PROFIBUS.

Thanks to intelligent SIDRIVE IQ Services like Expert Assistance and Expert Diagnostics, valuable condition and operating data of the connected SIMOTICS HV M high-voltage motors and the SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY GH180 frequency converters help make the plants operation more reliable. The data is analyzed and evaluated directly by Hanson Cement or Siemens service experts in MindSphere, the open cloud-based IOT operating system from Siemens. This way, Hanson Cement is always aware of the actual condition of critical drive system components and can selectively schedule pending repairs or maintenance work to coincide with planned system downtimes, without having to fear costly unexpected downtimes.

With a market share of around 25 percent, Hanson Cement is not only an important player in the English construction industry, but with 120 employees also one of the largest local employers and an important part of the local community. Given this social responsibility, environmental protection plays an important role for Hanson Cement. The new low-voltage motors are not only more economical, but also help reduce the plants noise pollution through their quieter operation.
