ABB Automation Tech has released an application factfile covering temperature measurement in the cement industry, available in PDF format.

Cement manufacturing sites are difficult, arduous applications characterised by extreme temperatures and corrosive dust.

As well as the risk of overheating key items of plant, there is also the risk of fire and potential explosions caused by dust particles.

Choosing the best type of instrument for these conditions is therefore crucial.

The double-sided guide explains the key considerations determining the selection of temperature equipment and outlines the various options on offer.

Recommendations are made for the three key areas where temperature needs to be monitored, namely the kiln, pre-heater and clinker feeder.

Also included is an at-a-glance guide to the range of high-temperature products from ABB, which includes high-temperature thermocouples, infrared thermometers and the TTF300 field-mounted temperature transmitter – the new generation of Hart temperature transmitters for demanding applications.

ABB’s range is specially designed for high-temperature, demanding applications with features such as in-built redundancy, robust housing with Atex and airtight 1/2 G EEx d approvals and a choice of special materials suited to intense heat applications.
