Basic kiln hoods – successful and ­innovative refractory concepts

The kiln hood of a rotary kiln in a cement plant connects the hot area of the kiln with the clinker cooler and is therefore always exposed to high thermal and process-related stresses. In recent decades, these loads have steadily increased in consequence of the use of alternative fuels and thereby induced higher process temperatures. For system builders, this means an enormous design effort, when rotary kilns are modernized.
