Certain pieces of equipment are process critical for smooth calciner operations, such as the feed screw, preheat burner, discharge device, fluidized bed cooler, ESP, etc. Periodic inspections during the planned shut-downs, conducted by a Metso Outotec specialist, provide precise information about the condition of the equipment. The inspection reports summarize the equipment status and developments to provide maintenance, operational, and safety-related recommendations. This information is critical in maximizing operational capacity by minimizing unscheduled downtime and maximizing the possible campaign life. It also allows planning the requirements for the next shut-down as well as the operating expenses over the long run.
Metso Outotec also applies process know-how to perform comprehensive calciner plant/process audits, to investigate bottlenecks, the potential for improved process performance, production or product (Alumina) quality, and the impact of raw material or fuel basis changes, etc. We value customer feedback to ensure continuous improvement and R&D activities as we strive to enhance equipment and designs. Continuous improvement includes the latest technologies as potential retrofit solutions.
