Modelling the Clinker Burning Process
Applying the modelling concept for high temperature processes to the cement rotary kiln plant enables a detailed description of the process. Due to long residence times at high temperatures, the complex chemical conditions can be adequately modelled by thermochemical equilibria. The plant behaviour can be simulated for different raw meal and fuel compositions at different operation parameters. A steady state solution for the process model is calculated iteratively. Buildup of alcali and sulphur cycles is described in good agreement to measurement results. Thus, by applying the developed modelling concept it is possible to characterize operating points for new raw materials or fuels.
