IKN placed order for A TEC GRECO kiln burner

Published by
World Cement,

A TEC GRECO will deliver its Kiln Burner to HeidelbergCement’s plant at Burglengenfeld. The project will be completed by the end of 2016 and is part of a complete modernisation of the plant at Burglengenfeld, which is conducted by IKN.

The scope of A TEC GRECO’s supply includes the engineering, design and manufacturing of a tailor-made combustion system including the required peripheral systems for an efficient and reliable operation.

The unique axisymmetric design of the A TEC GRECO burner using three airflows allows optimising of the combustion process and therefore maximising alternative fuel injection.

Additionally HeidelbergCement is achieving high control over NOx emissions through simple procedures. The burner operates with an outer, individual to kiln conditions adapted momentum flow of primary air (external air), with high momentum and therefore high exit velocity responsible for the slim, firm shape. That produces a shorter and high radiant flame compared to low momentum burners. The high momentum is equivalent to the mixing zone length of the flame, which follows the ability to control the flame from the ignition point to the remaining flame length.
