Water cooling technology- Kiln process optimization

The powerful and sophisticated kiln firing process conditions today make it necessary to cool the kiln shell in order to protect the refractory material and the steel body from overheating and wear. Traditionally, the cooling is done with high performance blowers and only a few plants in the world are actually working more or less successfully with cooling by water evaporation. In 2014, a team consisting of HeidelbergCement and the VDZ (Germany’s Cement Producer Association) decided to choose KIMA Process Control as an expert in measurement and control technologies.

The result is the world-wide patented “KilnCooler”™ system with over 30 installations in cement plants on all continents of the globe.

Expanding on the above Mr. Dirk Schmidt, Director at KIMA Process Control GmbH Germany will be presenting “Optimization of Kiln Operation: Case studies of IR- controlled kiln surface cooling by water mist”, at the Cement Business & Industry Brazil & LatAm 2019 Conference and exhibition to be held on April 11-12 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

From 2008 to 2015, Mr. Schmidt worked as a Sales and Marketing Director with Intercem Engineering, HEKO Ketten and PROMECON covering the global markets for the cement industry.

Process optimization, automation and consultancy based on innovative sensor developments and high-level control systems in industrial furnaces and grinding units are his core competences.

Since 2015 Mr. Schmidt has been the Director of KIMA Process Control (former known as KIMA Echtzeitsysteme).
