REPLACEMENT OF COLD WHEEL IN THE LIME KILN IN PLANT 1

PROBLEM

Deviation in the kiln´s rotation axis which was causing constant damages in the bearings and refractory loss.

SOLUTION

Alignment of the whole system and maintenance of bearings.

RESULTS

Operation at lower temperatures in bearings, which reduces pressure between rollers and wheel. Reduction of wear in other pieces, lower temperature operation between pinion-crown tooth wheel. Optimal operation in equipment.
