Wear Protection for Plants in the Cement Industry

Technical Conference to be held in Berlin and Rüdersdorf from September 20 – 21, 2007

Large quantities of bulk material are handled in a cement plant, including conveying, storing and processing. The different plant components can operate for only a short time without wear protection. Of great importance is the layout of the equipment and the selection of optimal materials for these components. These include ceramic and metallic materials as well as plastics and rubber.

Endangered plant components in cement plants begin in the raw material storage and raw material processing. They are followed by coal pulverizing and coal injection in the rotary kiln. Other sections suffering of wear are clinker handling and clinker grinding as well as handling of additives and of cement.

Improper layout of plant components that handle bulk materials may entail reduced operating periods, re-investment volumes and even unintended interruption of plant operation. The costs associated with such incidents are much greater than the higher expenses for improved technical layout and the use of most appropriate materials.

On the occasion of the above event to be held in Berlin and Rüdersdorf from September 20 – 21, 2007, 8 experts will report on fundamental aspects of wear protection technology, such as: the protection of pneumatic, hydraulic equipment and mechanical conveying systems, on materials used for wear protection and time-tested wear protecting solutions. The direct relation to practical problems and the following extensive discussion of every lecture as well as touring the Rüdersdorf cement plant of CEMEX OstZement GmbH on the 2nd day of the meeting will give specific information for optimizing plant operation and for the planning of most appropriate wear protection measures.
