A rotary kiln, often used the production of gray and white cement, lime and nickel, as well as in waste management, can be optimized successfully in terms of its combustion rate.
Kiln simulations offer an experimental way of predicting which changes of the kiln's structure, temperature, burner position and flame shape will result in enhanced combustion in real world applications, many of which have been tested with measurable increases in combustion rate and burn efficiency.

1. Increase the air flow to the burners to create a smoother combustion process. Improve the symmetry of the flame inside the burner for more efficient combustion. Distribute the air flow more evenly around the combustion chamber. Simulations show that the influence of combustion air distribution is very large and offers an excellent way of increasing the incident radiation received by the clinker bed, according to Fives Group.
