Temperature Sensors for Cement Manufacturing

Temperature Control in Cement Manufacturing

Temperature management is essential in cement manufacturing to ensure process control and product consistency.

As a temperature sensor specialist with experience working within the cement manufacturing industry, we understand how important it is to accurately measure the temperature during the clinker process. We recognise the importance of achieving high sintering temperatures in the cement kiln and the need to ensure process stability through adequate temperature.

At Peak Sensors we manufacture and supply a complete range of temperature sensors to be used within all stages of the cement manufacturing process, including the grinding and sintering processes. Our sensors are used within the kilns burning conventional fuel or refuse-derived fuel.

Temperature Sensors for Cement Manufacturing

Temperature sensors are used for monitoring purposes within the cement manufacturing industry. These sensors are typically thermocouples. Within lower temperature processes resistance thermometer devices (RTDs) can be used.

There are a few different thermocouple types available to suit your cement manufacturing process. To determine your thermocouple type (rare metal, base metal or mineral insulated thermocouple) or if a resistance thermometer is best suited to your process, the firing temperature and level of protection needed from the environment is taken into consideration.

Peak Sensors Cement Manufacturing brochure provides further information about temperature control and details about thermocouples and resistance thermometers designed for the industry.

Temperature Sensor Calibration

Old and new temperature sensors can be calibrated to ensure they are reading accurately and to specification. We can calibrate your existing sensors, offer calibration as part of the manufacturing process for new sensors built by Peak Sensors or provide on-site calibration visits.
