    The humidity is also important, as well as the temperature. Finally, one key parameter is actually the size of the powder. Indeed, the MIE varies along the cube of the diameter of the dust : MIE = f(d 3) This means that the smaller the particles are, the lower is the MIE and the higher will be the dust sensitive to an ignition source. This dependency is important to interpret and understand ...

    These compounds, which are initially vaporous, condense on the kiln feed or the kiln dust, at temperatures between 700 °C and 900 °C, subsequently reenter the rotary kiln system and evaporate again. This cycle in the area between the rotary kiln and the preheater can result in coating formation. A bypass at the kiln inlet allows effective reduction of alkali chloride cycles and to diminish ...
