Cement conveying systems are exposed to difficult operational conditions. Dust contamination, heavy material weight and high temperatures put strain on system components, potentially leading to early wearout and failures.
Although the potential risk of cement causing a dust explosion is low compared to other materials, the kiln at the heart of the cement plant has been the source of a number of explosions. Fired using coal, oil, gas or waste materials, it reaches temperatures of around 1,600°C.
Any conveying system used around the kiln or for the transportation of coal and cement should be carefully monitored for the risk of explosion hazards.
