Lime kiln

Igniter (Combustion monitoring)

The igniter’s task is to light the burner fuel. 

  • Continuous igniters operate as a so-called “preburner.”

Flame monitor (Combustion monitoring)

The flame monitor ensures that the flame is lit. If the flame monitor doesn’t detect flame, fuel supply to the burner is halted. If the fuel supply isn’t cut off, there is risk of an explosion upon re-ignition.

Thermal camera (Combustion monitoring)

A thermal camera provides you with a real-time image of combustion, and allows you to quickly resolve any related issues.

  • Flame shape
  • Lime sludge accumulation
  • Lime falling into the radiator
  • Grain size monitoring
  • Monitor critical temperature targets and connect alarms to your automation system

Pyrometer (Combustion monitoring)

The pyrometer measures the temperature of burnt lime. Reliable and accurate lime temperature measurement allows you to monitor the lime kiln combustion process and the quality consistency of burnt lime.

  • The temperature of burnt lime correlates with the amount of residual carbon.

O2 and CO measurement (Combustion monitoring)

O2 and CO measurement increases safety and reduces fuel consumption. If carbon monoxide levels are too high, there can be an explosion in the electrostatic precipitator. High levels of carbon monoxide also indicate poor combustion. In turn, excess oxygen increases fuel consumption.

  • Measurement solutions for dusty and challenging applications
  • Control panel with touch screen

TRS, NOx, CO, SO2, O2, particles (Emissions measured with continuous analyzers)

In accordance with official requirements, emission measurements must be monitored continuously. These measurements ensure that nitrogen oxide emission limits are not exceeded and production meets environmental requirements.

Flow measurement (Emissions measured with continuous analyzers)

In accordance with official requirements, emission measurements must be monitored continuously. These measurements ensure that nitrogen oxide emission limits are not exceeded and production meets environmental requirements.

Infrared scanners (Kiln surface monitoring)

Infrared scanners measure the surface temperature of the kiln. This measurement ensures that the brick lining is in good condition.

  • Repairs can be made in advance so the kiln lasts longer. Brick damage will appear as hotspots on the temperature map
  • The scanner also detects ring formation in the kiln. Rings are distinguished by dark zones.

When you want to optimize the operation of your lime kiln but control risk and emissions, Sintrol can find the most suitable solution for your process.
