HOW CAN LAB AUTOMATION IMPROVE AFRICAN CEMENT PRODUCER’S PROFITABILITY AND PRODUCTION EFFICIENCY?

  • Today in most parts of the world it is realized speed and frequency of chemical and mineralogical analyses support profitability of the plant and reliable products for the clients. Samples are shipped 100m/s to a central laboratory to maintain minimum offset in between sampling times - analyses and actions to correct an observation not matching to own and external quality requirements.
  • Modern pressed pellet modern XRF and XRD machines collect the required information on compliance of the sample with own targets. Each sample also serves as a window into the kiln shell to supply information on the degree of calcination, volatile cycles and finally the clinker quality. tkIS had been the frontrunner on premium sample preparation tools for the cement industry.
  • Automated laboratories pay back in less than 2 years. Automated laboratories contribute to earnings as correctives in raw meal are saved, clinker production is stable at high kiln availability and clinker substitution in cement can be maintained constantly and high values to come high specific cost of cement production.
