Will the Rotary Kiln Barrel Break?

Published 2021/2/26 9:00:06

The fracture of rotary kiln cylinder is very rare. After the fracture of rotary kiln cylinder, the fracture part should be sampled and sent to the professional organization or manufacturer for further quantitative analysis of the cause of the fracture accident, including fracture analysis, material chemical composition analysis, mechanical property test, hardness test, etc. Why is the rotary kiln tube broken?
Rotary kiln
The necking phenomenon of the rotary kiln cylinder under the belt occurs in different degrees, and the continuous operation is easy to cause the fracture of the cylinder. The cylinder at the intersection of cooler and rotary kiln is prone to fracture.
Cracks are usually distributed along the circumference of the cross section of the rotary kiln cylinder, accompanied by bending. Once the crack exceeds more than 1 / 3 of the circumference of the kiln, the cylinder may break.
The overall strength is low. At the intersection of the cooling cylinder and the kiln discharge port, several discharge holes of the multi cylinder cooler are evenly distributed on the circumference of the cylinder, so that the length of the actual iron plate is only about 1 / 2 of the circumference, and the overall strength is obviously reduced, so it is very easy to break at this place.
In the process of manufacturing, transportation and installation of rotary kiln shell, groove marks are formed, which leads to micro cracks. After cracks appear, it is necessary to carry out emergency repair. However, in the process of emergency repair, if the welder’s welding technology is not up to standard, or the welding filler metal is not selected properly, the welding part is easy to crack again and extend, leading to the occurrence of cylinder fracture accident.
Under the condition of material fatigue at high temperature, the cylinder has to bear alternating load and cold and hot changes for a long time. When the kiln is shut down due to production and non production reasons, the radial deformation of the cylinder section may occur. The thermal calibration of the rotary kiln shows that the surface temperature of the cylinder is often as high as 300 ℃. In this high temperature working environment, especially the alternation of cold and hot, it is easy to cause the fatigue of the steel plate material of the rotary kiln cylinder, the decrease of stiffness, and then fracture.
If there is a crack defect in the fracture source area of the kiln shell before fracture, after repair welding, but the welding quality is poor, the initial crack cracks along both sides of the repair welding, extends to both ends for a certain length and then bifurcates, and gradually turns to expand in the circumferential direction under the action of gravity, until the cylinder fracture falls off the kiln platform.
Kiln shell is a kind of low temperature brittle fracture based on large-scale defects. Under the condition of low material temperature, the dynamic load directly leads to the rapid brittle fracture. Before the final low temperature fracture, the defects undergo the process of corrosion damage, hot welding damage and crack fatigue.
Generally speaking, the fracture of rotary kiln cylinder is rare, but it is not without such phenomenon. In most cases, it is because some small manufacturers or irresponsible factories cut corners or have low manufacturing level in the process of processing. Therefore, it is recommended that you choose a professional large factory such as Hongke heavy industry for customized production when purchasing rotary kiln, so as to provide you with high-quality equipment.
