In our interactive area you will find useful tools and demos provided by CPI. We are planning several new interactive features, so please check back for new updates in this area.
Excessive variability in the cement manufacturing process is one of the primary causes of the poor performance of cement operations. Our Variability Calculator estimates total quality performance for each stage of the process and by inputting the standard deviation of each of the chemical and physical parameters into the calculator, users can review their performance at each stage of the process, and therefore review at what stage, if any, costly variability is being introduced.
As the main energy-consuming and greenhouse-gas–emitting stage of cement manufacture, reducing fuel consumption is a central concern of cement manufacturing technology. Fuel consumptions can range from the most modern 6 stage Precalciner kilns with fuel consumptions of 680-700 Kcal/Kg cl to the oldest wet kilns up to 1600 Kcal/Kg cl. As such it is important to benchmark fuel consumption against similar equipment types.
In the manufacturing environment it is essential to have access to technical back-up to assist in resolving some of the challenges of the cement manufacturing process. CPI has the facility to provide remote technical assistance from the UK with a guaranteed response time. All questions and solutions are stored within the remote support system as a reference for registered users at all of the client's plants.
