Alternative fuels are gaining popularity in cement plants worldwide. As a result, problems with chemical build-up and alkali attacks have become more common. This threatens the entire structure of the preheater tower, and reduces production efficiency. Skamol offers a back-up insulating brick that is specifically designed to withstand these hazards and enables the use of modern, alternative fuel types.
The back-up insulating product, HIPOR 450 offers the following benefits:
Protect the lining and steel shell against acid attacks
Reduce surface temperature, minimising the development of hot spots
Enable the use of both standard and alternative fuels
The light-weight insulating bricks, HIPOR 450, allows for low-weight refractory lining constructions with excellent thermal efficiency, minimising the refractory load and making it possible to withstand and maintain the temperatures needed for hard-to-burn alternative fuels.
For productions using fuels such as coal, natural gas and oil, Skamol also offers the SUPER-ISOL and SUPER-1100 E boards. They are constructed from a non-fibrous composition, granting them great thermal insulating properties, giving you
Outstanding protection throughout the temperature range
A considerable reduction of the energy consumption
Quick and easy installation, reducing production down-time
Excellent protection against alkali attacks
Skamol’s SUPER-1100 E insulation board has been developed for calciners and pre-heaters with little or no risk of acid attack.
