Dear, the holding time for the material during calcination process is seems to be long Please provide us the flow diagramme for the entire process enabling us to suggest.

Also let us know the temp. at outlet and pressures at inlet and outlet of dust collector.Please also let us know the make of the kettle. In China there are very few cos. who provide the complete plant and take gurantees otherwise most of them are traders who only want to sell the equipment only.

first of all i would like to thank you for your effort to solve my problem

the process is the material will be crushed by hammer crusher then fed to Raymond mill then it will be conveyed by bucket elevator to the calciner( kettle) from the top and there is one burner at bottom works by using heavy oil furnace .

2, regarding the temperature we have got only two readings, the first one is inserted in to the vertical kettle its temperature reaches most of the time from 150-190 and the second one is for the heavy oil the temperature reaches around 100

3, for the pressure u have asked we don't have any gauge to measure the pressure inside the kettle but the pressure for the oil reaches about 2 bar

Gentleman,Your selection for the Raymond mill is wise ,please also let me know the maker of Chinese Kettle.In China there are very few suppliers who supplies good equipment.The price difference between good suppliers and traders sometimes more then 40% so lot of clients falls in to their trap.

The compatibility between equipment supplied by various suppliers is not a easy thing.

Please let us know location of this plant and also flow sheet for the entire process.

Since, you have shopped equipment from various suppliers I think process flow sheet will not be available with you.

thank you gentlemen the location of this plant is in Ethiopia and i don't know the producer of the kettle but we bought all the equipments from one manufacture named yatai

Gentleman, This is the perfect example of not doing pre engineering/study before going for any plant.If the entire system is bought from one source then the customer can ask for guarantees from the suppliers.I think you will have to call the supplier from China if this kettle is still in grantee period.Now, you may face music from these suppliers when they will ask for the huge fees for the visit and then they will put blame on other supplier.This is a baby with lot of boy friends.

Please send us the flow sheet for the entire system showing--Material in feed capacity,size and temp.We will try our best to solve your problem.
