Pneumatic Conveying of Cement to 1,800 Degrees Fahrenheit

Fox Venturi Eductors are used for pneumatic conveying of cement to 1,800° F in dilute phase systems. Is a maintenance-free pneumatic conveying solution of interest at your plant?

Fox venturi eductors are installed in hundreds of cement plants all over the world. Their ability to convey abrasive cement, CKD, ash, and alternative fuels with no moving parts makes them applicable in a large variety of applications. Because Fox eductors are machined from bar, they are rugged, heavy-duty, heavy-walled equipment ideally suited for pneumatic conveying applications in cement plants.

Typical uses include:

a) Fuel injection, especially pulverized coal

b) Alternative fuel injection such as agricultural waste products like rice husks, corn cobs, seed and nut waste, wood chips and sawdust, and industrial or municipal waste (RDF), such as shredded paper and plastic, shredded tires (TDF), hazardous waste including dried sewage sludge, used oil filters and MBM—meat and bone meal.

c) Pollution control systems, such as activated carbon injection ( ACI), flue gas desulfurization (FGD) and other sorbent injection applications for pollution mitigation where 24/7 reliability is critical.

Fox eductors are often installed under leaking rotary kilns to capture and convey high temperature CKD before it hits the ground and creates a fire and work hazard. Fox eductors often convey CKD at temps to 1,600° F with no moving parts—something impossible to do with a rotary valve.
