Efficient down to the last detail

SIEMENS AG/ Instrumentation efficiency

In addition to comprehensive major projects a significant reduction of the energy consumption can be achieved by small measures and the choice of the right equipment.

Cement manufacturing is an energy-intensive process. In addition to the high consumption of fuel for calcination and clinkering, which requires temperatures in the range of 1400 °C to 1450 °C, electric energy is needed to process the raw materials, cool the clinker, and grind the cement. The use of advanced technology such as rotary kilns and pre-heater has optimized the calcination process to a point where no further significant reduction of energy consumption through procedural measures is expected.1
