Replacing shell sections is a routine task for NAK employees. Experienced field personnel are the key to the correct installation of a new kiln shell section and to maintaining the repair schedule. All NAK personnel are equipped and trained in both safety and kiln service work. All crew leaders have many years of kiln experience, and are backed up by expert project managers.
Shell section replacements:
The proper removal of the existing section is critical to allow the new section to be correctly installed. Continuing to operate a kiln with a damaged shell generally results in excessive unscheduled downtime, increased refractory costs and could lead to a catastrophic failure of the shell causing collateral damage to surrounding equipment.
Reduce your energy consumption, increase your process output, and address causes of premature failure of seals. Our overlapping seal designs address the three major factors that cause premature seal failure:
Eliminates the effect of radial run-out of the shell or cowl by the installation of a quadrant ring and seal riding plate. The riding plate becomes the actual sealing surface.
Seal leaves are designed to accept axial movement of the riding band. Accumulations are then removed before they interfere with the pressure seals’ contact with the seal riding plate.
We are experts at replacing kiln tire pads and shim plates.
Kiln operation should employ a well-developed preventative maintenance plan, which includes items such as replacing support pads and trunnion roller base replacement. The time for the useful life of many kiln components can be extended by using high-quality kiln lubricants.
NAK will determine your tire needs either by resurfacing or repairing the existing tire before catastrophic failure occurs. Should you need to replace a tire, NAK can advise of your options.
Our pinion services include pinion alignment, reverse and or install new pinion and gears. If the pinion is set too far out of mesh the load overlap will be lost. Gears separate as result of thermal expansion.
NAK is qualified to reverse and or install new pinion and gears.
