Control strategy for a multiple hearth furnace in kaolin

01/12/2018· In this paper, the concept of a mineralogy-driven control strategy for multiple hearth furnaces for kaolin production is presented and discussed. The aim of the advanced control concept is to increase capacity and to reduce energy consumption while maintaining the desired product quality. The control is based on two main soft sensors: the spinel phase reaction rate indicator for energy use

Control strategy for a multiple hearth furnace in kaolin

Kaolin is an important industrial clay mineral used in multiple products such as paper, rubber, paint, and refractory items. Various applications of kaolin require calcination to enhance clay mineral properties and to provide added value to the material. Calciner furnaces such as rotary kilns and multiple hearth furnaces (MHF) are widely used

Dynamic modeling of a multiple hearth furnace for kaolin

A dynamic model of a multiple hearth kaolin calciner has been developed and is presented in this article. This model describes the physical‐chemical phenomena taking place in the six furnace parts: the solid phase, gas phase, walls, cooling air, rabble arms, and the central shaft. The solid phase movement, in particular, is described by a novel mixing model. The mixing model divides the

Dynamic modelling of a multiple hearth furnace

The aim of this thesis is to develop a dynamic model of a multiple hearth furnace (MHF) used for the kaolin calcination process. The resulting model facilitates in studying the complex physico-chemical phenomena occurring inside the furnace and providing a dynamic simulator for monitoring purposes. The dynamic model also provides means to develop a better control over the temperature profile

Production of Calcined Kaolin MDPI

The Multiple Hearth Furnace (MHF) that is used for the calcination of kaolin is presented in Figure1. The MHF is composed of eight hearths and eight burners, located at the fourth and sixth hearths, which combust natural gas to provide the necessary heat to trigger the calcination reactions. Adjustment of the gas flow controls the temperature inside the calciner [3,10,11]. Minerals 2020, 10
