KILN SEAL REPLACEMENT

Problem

Due to the ongoing work of the kiln and exhaust particulate matter, there are produced wear on the slides that form the seal, presenting input “false air” to the system causing high fuel consumption in its operation.

Solution

New lamellae that form the seal. Planning and scheduling of work change the seal. At this time there was need to change part of the kiln section where the seal support lamellae.

Results

Good sealing of the kiln. No false air entry and normal fuel consumption for operation.
