Application

Large amounts of energy are needed to burn clinker in rotary kilns. Substitute liquid fuels such as spent oils or recovered solvents are often used for this purpose. The fuel storage tanks often contain a mixture of solvents, which can produce fumes and vapours in the air space. Due to the large amount of energy needed in cement production, the fuel inputs represent a significant cost factor, so accurate level measurement is essential.
