Hot Kiln Alignments

Hot Kiln Alignments

An annual hot kiln alignment and routine roller adjustments are critical to maintaining optimum production. 

With nearly two decades of designing, installing, and maintaining kilns, dryers, and coolers, our team will test, inspect, and monitor to prevent loss of production and extend your asset’s lifecycle. 

RKS field service technicians use cutting-edge instruments to measure the key kiln health parameters, including:

  • Axis alignment
  • Ovality
  • Roller thrust
  • Kiln and roller incline
  • Roller shaft deflection
  • 3D laser-scanning of shell deformities and deflection
  • Girth gear axial and radial runouts
  • Tyre axial runouts
  • Tyre and roller diameters and surface condition
  • Tyre creep and mechanical component wear
  • General mechanical condition

Our detailed reports will identify potential problems and allow for planning of major capex repairs, minimising the risk of production loss through unplanned stoppages or breakdowns.

RKS are pioneers in design, installation, and maintenance of rotary vessels, providing optimum value for your site today, and into the future. 

Working globally, we are the southern hemisphere’s leaders in servicing mineral processing, cement, and pulp and paper plants.

Sustainability of your asset is our priority – to maximise output and minimise cost
