Refractory Concrete

The real source of all the problems that occur in the process that occurs in petroleum coke firms is sulfur and vanadium in petrocoke content. Therefore, the amount of petroleum coke that a cement plant can use has a limit, and this leads to frequent replacement of fuel mixes, which often increases fuel costs. Sulfur Control Chemical is used to overcome this big problem, to increase the feed rate of petroleum fuel and to ensure that the petroleum coke containing high sulfur burns without decreasing yield.

Compared to the use of coal or other fuels, although more economical, the use of petrocoke presents a number of challenges for the cement plant operator. Usually, cheaper petrocoke has a higher sulfur content, making these problems even more complicated.


The use of high petrocoke and / or high sulfur petrocoke causes operational problems such as:


Low combustion efficiency.

Unstable operation and low rotary kiln capacity.

Reduction in alternative fuel use.

Unplanned stops for the cleaning of narrowing and blockages in the rotary kiln and preheater.

Long and risky cleaning activities in the rotary kiln transfer and cyclones.

Incorrect cold air intake due to long cleaning times

High specific calories and high fuel consumption.

Rotary kiln high electrical motor power consumption and increased risks of mechanical failure.

Decrease in the separation efficiency of cyclones.


In addition to the basic inefficiencies written above, there are some long-term losses.


The use of Sulfur Control Chemical provides a number of operational benefits, including:


Since the properties of existing wraps and belts are changed, they are easily swept away by the material flow in the process.

The formation of new wraps and arches is prevented.

The facility benefits from improved operational stability and the equipment used will have a longer life.

Less unscheduled downtimes lead to longer production times.

Cleaning activities at the furnace entrance and cyclones will be shorter and easier, thereby minimizing staff exposure to high-risk activities.

The enterprise can use higher amounts of high sulfur petrocoke in the fuel mixture while maintaining or increasing its maximum feeding capacity. Despite the increase in capacity, heat and fuel are saved.

A richer atmosphere in O2 allows more use of alternative fuels.

Clinker SO3 percentage values ​​increase with the use of high sulfur petrocoke and a sulfur control agent.

In spite of the increased feed tonnage, SO2 emissions retain their old values ​​or decrease slightly.
