developed for the kiln mill drive used in Cement Industry using PLC, and which can be interfaced using SCADA. 1. Introduction . In cement plants, variable frequency drives provide controlled torque and speed to the kiln. In addition to enhanced process control, the VFD increases the life of the mechanical equipment and reduces mechanical

Dehydration of the gypsum added to the cement In the grinding process heat will be generated and the cement will be heated up. The temperature of the cement leaving the mill will be dependant on the temperature of the materials (especially the clinker) fed to the mill and to features of the mill and the grinding process.

to determine the effects of using a byproduct on the manufacturing process, cement performance and facility emissions. Portland cement is the basic ingredient of concrete. Concrete, one of the most widely used construction materials in the world, is formed when portland cement creates a paste with water that binds with sand and rock to harden.

The milling process generates heat and excessive mill temperatures are undesirable. It is clearly helpful, therefore, if the clinker is cool as it enters the mill. From an environmental and a cost viewpoint, the cooler reduces energy consumption by extracting heat from the clinker, enabling it to be used to heat the raw materials.

raw materials and clinker in raw mills and cement mills. The annual global cement production absorbs 18.7 TWh reaching a 5% of the total industrial energy consumption [1]. Cement grinding is very essential as to the product quality characteristics because during this process cement acquires a certain composition and fineness.

Function: A cement mill is a drive used to grind the hard, nodular clinker from the cement kiln into the fine grey powder that is cement. Most cement is currently ground in ball mills and also vertical roller mills which are more effective than ball mills. Process: Raw materials are fed to the mill in right proportion with the help of weighfeeders.

The cement manufacturing process starts with the mining of limestone that is excavated from open cast mines. Then this limestone is crushed to -80 mm size and is loaded in longitudinal stockpiles. Limestone is taken out diagonally from these stockpiles for grinding in raw mill hoppers. As mentioned earlier coal is used as a fuel to heat the raw ...

The power ingesting of a grinding process is 50-60% in the cement production power consumption. The Vertical Roller Mill (VRM) reduces the power consumption for cement grinding approximately 30-40% associated with other grinding mills. The process variables in cement grinding process using VRM are strongly nonlinear and having large time
