Producing the best clinker quality

A Micropilot FMR57 level radar is installed above each moving street of the clinker cooler grate in the kiln hood. The radar device feeds back the level and volume of the clinker on the moving grate and the cooling air, and grate speed is adjusted to optimize the clinker’s quality to the specified recipe.
