Condition monitoring for cement kilns

By Published on April 8, 2022


Some time ago, FLSmidth came to Brüel & Kjær Vibro for help with condition monitoring their cement kilns. FLSmidth offers kiln condition monitoring as a service with 24/7 customer support. FLSmidth needed an OEM that could provide a dedicated vibration condition monitoring solution. B&K Vibro and FLSmidth put in the time to collaborate to ensure FLSmidth’s needs were met.

The cement kiln is the central part of the plant. Its capacity determines the output of the plant. So, the kiln needs to operate continuously with very few shutdowns. The design and operation of the kiln make it prone to shell deformation defects. Defects in the shell will lead to costly unplanned downtime.

The VCM-3 was chosen to monitor their cement kilns. The VCM-3 is customizable to fit many monitoring needs and was the perfect solution for FLSmidth. The feedback from FLSmidth has been positive. Since adding condition monitoring for their cement kilns most critical failure modes can be monitored continuously and reliably. Whereas before, fault detection was performed once a year or less. B&K Vibro and FLSmidth now have more projects in the pipeline.
