Hot Kiln Alignment Analysis:
  • Determine kiln axis misalignment
  • Measure bearing end cap pressures or roller shaft thrust collar pressures, depending on the bearing design to determine thrust load conditions
  • Calculate bearing adjustments necessary to straighten the kiln axis
  • Quantify the effects of shell dogleg conditions and determine if such effects are sufficient magnitude to jeopardize kiln mechanical stability
  • Measure shell Ovality on all piers


What we need from you:
  • Pictures, videos, etc.
  • Drawings or basic dimensions
  • What are you experiencing?
  • Unit history
