Blockage Clearing for Rotary Kilns and High Heat Applications

Force Vector is a sister company to Deca Vibrator, providing complementary products and services to our bulk material handling solutions.

In cement and other manufacturing plants, the Cardox CO² System is the most efficient and cost effective method of clearing build-up and blockages in preheaters, cyclones, inlet chambers, riser ducts, feed pipes, rotary kilns, raw feed mills, precalciners, coolers and anywhere in the plant’s processing line.

Cardox can quickly remove blockages and buildups and restore plant production to optimum levels, with no need to sit through an extended shut down while the equipment cools. Cardox can be used in all areas of the processing lines at operating temperatures. Unlike air blasters where cement plants complain of ineffectiveness and report losses of efficiency of up to 75%, using Cardox the result is no loss in efficiency. 

Each time you use a Cardox Tube, you can expect maximum pressure to remove the build-up, and with tubes having a working life of over 15 years, maximum efficiency can be sustained for that long as well.

The Cardox F57 model is the recommended unit for rotary kiln applications.

Features & Benefits

  • Other ring or blockage removal operations, such as sending workers inside, may take as long as eight days and up to thirty workers and involves shutting down the kiln and allowing it to cool off. This wastes time and of course money. The Cardox System can have the problem fixed in a matter of hours, requiring only one or two workers. Compared to manual cleaning techniques or plant shut downs the Cardox Blockage Clearing System can typically pay for itself in a single application. Many cement plants are beginning to realize just how costly the day to day running costs of air blasters can be! Add on the high installation costs, the high equipment costs and indeed the maintenance costs required with air blasters and it is no wonder why CARDOX is becoming known as the most cost effective method of’ removing blockages and buildups
