Since first coming to market in 2003, FLSmidth’s KilnLoqTM high temperature gas analysis probe has delivered the fundamental data needed to face industry challenges. The latest evolution of KilnLoq features standard reliability with unique upgrades.
For cement and mineral plant operators, access to reliable on-line process information plays a fundamental role in optimising product quality, reducing operating costs and curbing harmful emissions. A dependable kiln inlet gas analysis system is an important tool to give operators the data they need to meet plant production strategies.
On 1 January 2011, FLSmidth released the latest version of its market-leading gas analysis probe system, KilnLoq. Building on the reputation of the previous KilnLoq system, the new version retains all of the characteristically simple, strong and reliable design advantages, but it also offers a list of unique benefits to make the successful and powerful probe even more useful.
High temperature gas analysis is sometimes perceived as complicated or troublesome. However, with nearly 200 installations of the previous model within the past five years, the KilnLoq gas analysis system has proven to be a reliable and flexible system, with surprising ease of maintenance. The new KilnLoq builds upon this standard with the patented One Pipe design to create increased probe purging power. The One Pipe design makes air blaster-like cleaning, with full probe-length cleanout and inspection possible in less than two minutes.
Like its predecessor, the latest KilnLoq gas analysis system’s modular configuration also makes retrofitting an option, which has proven to be a convenient and cost saving design feature for customers with existing equipment from other vendors. With the release of the new KilnLoq, FLSmidth maintains the industry standard while innovating several unique features that may ultimately help customers save time and reduce costs.
