# Abstract

Cement production has been one of the most energy intensive industries in the world. In order to produce
clinker, rotary kilns are widely used in cement plants. This paper deals with the energy audit analysis of a dry
type rotary kiln system working in a cement plant in FCCL. The kiln has a capacity of 3000 ton-clinker per day.
It was found that about 40% of the total input energy was being lost through hot flue gas (19.15%), cooler
stack (5.61%) and kiln shell (15.11% convection plus radiation). Some possible ways to recover the heat losses
are also introduced and discussed.
THE IMPORTANCE OF HEAT BALANCES
The heat balance calculation is basically a calculation where heat inputs and outputs are measured, calculated
and compared.
The heat balance calculation provides a snap shot of the specific heat consumption of the kiln system with the
kiln in stable operating conditions. The purpose of the heat balance calculation is to:
Establish the specific heat consumption of the stable operating kiln
Yield information about where the heat losses occur in the system
Gather information on the size of heat losses where they occur.
With this information, the plant personnel can decide if any action is required and identify the points where
attention might be needed.
The specific heat consumption of a kiln is calculated based on the calorific consumption and the clinker
production. The calorific consumption can be calculated when the fuel consumption and the net heat value of
the fuel are known. The kiln clinker production can be calculated either from weighing the clinker, from
calculations based on the consumption of raw meal or from the amount of cement that is produced. The figure
for specific heat consumption is often available on the factory calculated on a weekly or monthly basis.
However the value for the long-term specific heat consumption will always be higher than the corresponding
figure for the periods of stable kiln operation, as it includes the period where the kiln production is low.
The approach taken here in performing a heat balance emphasizes the practical aspects and uses simplifications
to permit a rapid set-up and calculation. The simplifications will limit the accuracy of the heat balance to
approximately + 2% relative. This must be considered satisfactory as many of the measured values in the plant,
such as air flows and surface heat losses, will have a greater margin of relative error.
For the practical use of the results where also the historic changes are evaluated, the absolute figures might not
be so important. The important thing is to ensure that the values are reproducible. If, for instance, the surface
heat loss from the pre heater is continuously underestimated in the balance, the trend in the specific heat
consumption and other heat losses over a time period will still be clear.
HEAT BALANCE PROCEDURAL STEPS
When a heat balance is performed, the procedure is as follows:

## Define the system

It is customary to draw the boundary just after the pre heater cyclones before the ID fan and just after
the exit of the clinker cooler.
Define input and output material flows
Inputs include raw meal, the fuel and the air. Outputs are smoke gas, the dust with the gas, and can
also include by pass gas and excess air in the cooler. The flows are often expressed as kg material / kg
Define input and output energy flows
Define the temperatures and specific heat content of the material streams.
Define other sources of energy input or output.
Other sources include heat of reaction of the raw meal and radiation losses from surfaces.

Calculate the energy flows. This is often calculated in kcal/kg clinker but can equally be joule/min or
other units.

## Heat in dust loss

To calculate Heat in dust loss we have two possibilities.
(A)
Clinker Production & Back Calculation
(B)
EP dust to trucks
But according to design figure we know 17.7 tons / clinker dust hour
By Formula

## 17.7x24 hours x 1000 (conversion into kgs)

3000 (total production) x 1000 (tons into kgs)
=
0.142 kgs / kg ckr.

## Heat Capacity in Raw meal Dust:

## H2O in Raw meal

Heat Loss in Raw mill
Assuming that 0.5% H2O in Raw meal
Temperature of water 60Co
Calculation of water
= 210 Tons/h x0.5 H2O%x24hoursx1000 kg into tons
100 x 3000 tons/D x 1000 tons into kgs
Now we have to temp increase
