Optimized Kiln Operation by Keeping Kiln Shell Temperatures at Set Point with Controlled Water Cooling

Increasingly powerful and sophisticated kiln-firing process conditions make it necessary to cool the kiln shell in order to protect the refractory material and the steel body from overheating and wear. Traditionally the cooling is done with high performance blowers and only a few plants in the world are actually working more or less successfully with cooling by water evaporation.
