Application

Large amounts of energy are needed to burn clinker in rotary kilns. Apart from conventional energy sources such as gas, oil and coal, solid substitute fuels such as dried sewage sludge, old tires or meat and bone meal are increasingly being used. Since the required amounts of energy represent a significant cost factor in cement production, exact level measurement of the solid fuels is essential.
