Refractories play a crucial role in the cement industry. Rotary kilns, high volume static equipment, burner pipes and many more systems that are exposed to high temperatures, corrosive, or harsh environments use refractory systems to shield them. Each stage of the cement-making process places unique demands on the refractory lining. Refractory selection is influenced by the kiln design, fuel burned, raw meal and operating characteristics. Refractories play a crucial role in maintaining a productive, safe, and efficiently operating system. Some areas in the Cement industry where refractory is commonly used are:
- Rotary Kilns
- Kiln Hoods
- Burner Pipes
- Preheaters (Cyclones, Ducting, Caclciners)
- Meal Pipes
- Tertiary Air Ducts
