Cement mill audits

Long & short term data analysis

  • Production
  • Operation
  • Quality
  • Evaluation & Potential estimation based on:-Comparison with other grinding systems-Theoretical calculations

Short Term Data Analysis

  • Operation
  • Quality

Targets of a “B” Level Audit

Get to know well each of the circuit components

Measuring is the base

 

Requirements for the “B” level audit

  • Quality parameters to be known:

-Composition

-Fineness:

-Blaine

-[%] residue on a screen-

-A given PSD

-Early strength

-Late strength

-Cement target temperature

-LOI

  • Cement type choice (depends on targets)

The one with the highest throughput

-The most produced

-The finest one

– A chosen composition

– Stable operation for 6 – 8 hours

– Previous checking of:

-Feeders

-Instruments

-Etc.

Logical realisation order

  • Define the cement type (s) for the audit
  • Gather the main machines design data
  • Central Control Room visit
  • Circuit visual inspection
  • Field activities:

-Counters reading

-Sampling

-Measuring

-Mill, separator and auxiliaries internal visual inspection

  • Data compilation and analysis
  • Conclusions & report

Main machines design data

Mill Control System, Strategy & Trends

  • Information on:

-Available information at the CCR

-First contact with circuit layout

-Control system

-Control strategy

-First impression on operation

-Circuit stability

Circuit / Visual inspection during operation

Power measurement

Material and liquids sampling and measurements

Material sample analysis

Mill air measurements
