Air leakages through Side and in front of the plate

Pressure drop 25 to 50 mm WC

The Cooling air will always take the path of least resistance It makes uneven air distribution and causes formation of red river To Over come this the air should pass through a resistance before going to clinker bed

Importance of Grate Resistance

Resistance is the cumulative of pressure drop by

Clinker bed depth
Distribution of Coarse and fine particle

Pressure drop over the grate plate

To Increase the resistance, resistance type grate plate has Developed

Air Beam Technology

Fine Side Coarse side Resistance Grate Plate

Air Entry

Group of Grate plate is supported in a fixed or Movable air beam

Air is supplied to Grate plate through separate duct and air beam Air can be throttled by valve to individual group

IKN Jet Plate

IKN is only developed the term resistance grate first Longer air chamber, resulting high pressure drop S shape slot inclined towards the direction of transport

Cool the plates Surface and bottom layer of Clinker

Convey the fine fraction to top surface Re entrain the air for repeated contact to clinker

It has only 2-3 % open grate area compared to 8 to 12 % in conventional grate This pattern is followed for the entire cooler length

Day to Day Inspection

On the outside , over the grate: Check for hot spots,which may indicate Lining failure on the mild-steel casing. Look for cracks at the seal welds.

Day to Day Inspection

Through inspection ports under the grate Check the grates. Look for flawed and loose grate parts,cover plates etc. Examine supporting . Check for any Spillage if a spillage is there, increase the air flow in that compartment

Day to Day Inspection

Through Inspection ports over the grate: Check the grates. Look for flawed and loose grate parts, cover plates etc. Inspect brickwork chain curtain and coarse grate. Check the sectors for seal at kiln shell.

Grate Inspection (During Shutdown)

Check the vertical distance between the grate elements. The distance must be 3mm +/- 2 mm. Check the gap between shoes and grate plates for air quenching .The gap must ne 3mm+/- 2 mm Check the support rollers at under compartment to prevent distortion of the drive arm Check the flexible joints.

Trouble Shooting Irregularity Grate Movement failure

Possible cause 1: Deformed or loose grate units or cover plates.
Remedy: Replacement or fixation of the parts.

Trouble Shooting Irregularity Grate Movement failure

Possible cause 1: Incorrect vertical distance between the grate units because of worn supporting rollers.
Remedy: Insert thicker intermediates under the plummer blocks, or, if necessary, replace the entire supporting roller arrangement.

Trouble Shooting Irregularity Blow through of air beside the grate

Possible cause : Defective sealing plates at grates and frames caused by thermal impacts or skew running frames. Remedy: Parts to be replaced or aligned and positioned with the necessary clearance at the frame.

No Dust Fall through Grate

Transport tracks
Transport tracks are arranged in line with the direction of clinker conveyance The rows of transport tracks are positioned a certain distance from each other and the aeration elements are located between them The number of transport track rows is determined by the required width of the cooler Every row of tracks runs the entire length of the cooler To convey the clinker, the transport tracks move forward together and then move backward individually
