Advanced Process Control - Lime Kiln Control and Optimization

Opportunity: Lime Kiln Control and Optimization.

Solution: The implementation of a control of the charge of fuels and non-condensable gasses, stabilizing the temperatures in different regions of the kiln can be realized by OptProcess. The control alleviates disturbances from changes in the mass of mud and solids present in it and gasses, increasing energy efficiency and improving lime quality.

Result: A reduction of 5 to 10% in energy consumption is expected.
