Cement is manufactured through a closely-controlled chemical combination of calcium, silicon, aluminium, iron and other ingredients. Temperature monitoring at key stages is essential to providing this close control.

Monitoring is also important to control emissions, ensure consistent quality, oversee the condition of the kiln, and prevent fire risk from hot spots in the process.

AMETEK Land has more than 70 years’ experience in supplying the cement industry and OEMs across the world with temperature measurement equipment. Our products deliver reliable, high-quality results that help improve efficiency, process control and extend asset life.

Cement & Lime Industry BrochureCEMENT & LIME INDUSTRY BROCHURE

Cement and lime manufacturing processes both involve mixing inorganic minerals calcined at high temperatures, typically using rotary kilns. The raw materials may be taken through a number of preheating and precalcining stages before being charged in the rotary kiln.

Application Note - Critical Measurement in Cement ManufactureTEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS IN CEMENT MANUFACTURE

Temperature monitoring across the manufacturing process is essential to support process efficiency and cement product quality. It can also help to prolong the life of the kiln through early detection of refractory issues or insufficiently quenched clinker, which could lead to production stoppages if left unchecked. Monitoring solutions also support safety and emissions control.
