Clinker Cooler Optimization

Business Problem

The goal is to reduce energy consumption and thus reduce cost while also increasing yield.


Cement production is a complex, highly variable operation. The challenge is to optimize the process by maximizing second and tertiary air, while minimizing clinker out temperature. Process variability should also be minimized.

SentianController solution

SentianController can be used to predict clinker and air temperatures, allowing not only anticipation of future conditions but also understanding of trends and changes in the process. By using the prospective, scenario-creating capabilities of SentianController, you can control fan flows and stoke speed, taking cooler vent temperature and undergrate pressure into account for optimal performance.
