Kiln inlet graphite plates seal





THIS INLET SEAL CAN BE INSTALLED ON ANY TYPE OF ROTARY KILN

Energy savings and production increase thanks to the graphite plates system which prevent false air entries


Advantages :

  • Adjustable to any type and size of kilns
  • Long lasting efficient leak tightness without any specific maintenance
  • Prevents false air entries in the kiln
  • Ensures pressure stability in the kiln
  • Prevents release of hot gases and dust particles from the kiln
  • The dust suppression outside the kiln ensures a longer life time of the mechanical components (bearings, roller, etc.) located nearby
  • Allows an increase of the throughput through the kiln
  • Its installation requires only 10 days under our supervision
  • The replacement of a graphite plate does not require a kiln shutdown


Principle :
 
  • A specially designed circular bearing race (or sliding track) is mounted on the kiln and adjusted to compensate any pre-existing eccentricity
  • The graphite plates are mounted on a specific support (designed case by case) which is bolted on the fume box
  • The graphite plates are held in contact with the circular bearing race with the help of 2 metal cables and adjustable counterweights
  • Cooling of the graphite plates is done with air blown in a dedicated duct
  • The graphite plates are overlapping each others to enhance the overall leak tightness


Performances :
 
  • Average life time of graphite plates : 4 to 5 years
  • Fast payback, typically from 6 to 18 months depending on the condition of the seal to be replaced
