Air cannons are widely used in cement production, yet most were designed years ago and have barely evolved. Meanwhile, cement plants have gotten larger and have begun to burn more fuels which produce troublesome buildup.
Join Dracyon Corporation for an exclusive webinar on the following topics:
Improvements in air cannon design
Improvements in air cannon efficiency can be achieved as a result of the following factors:
1) Improved nozzles.
2) Improved reliability.
3) increased cleaning energy.
Achieving these goals enables Dracyon to now offer a 10 year warranty.
What cement plants should be asking for
Protecting both your air cannon and maintenance personnel is a requirement. Plants should not accept high pressure water washing or the use of cardox to provide supplemental cleaning. Plants should instead demand the performance from the air cannon that was advertised.
Plants should demand a cleaning range of at least 3 m, low maintenance costs, and a safe system.
Plants should also stop storing air in the air tanks: all air cannons leak and needlessly filling up air cannons too often becomes the number one usage of compressed air.
Selecting the right air cannon for the job
Testing has proven that in some applications a 4 in. diameter air cannon just is not powerful enough for the job. To face and solve buildup issues in the cement industry, plants must have a family of air cannons fit to suit the demands of each application.
