To produce cement, the raw meal is burned to clinker in a long rotary kiln. After leaving the rotary kiln, the clinker has a temperature of up to 1300 C and must be cooled down to a temperature of about 200 C for further storage. To achieve this, the clinker bed is cooled with a continuous stream of air. Pressure monitoring is required in the lower part of the clinker cooler to make the cooling as effective as possible.

In order to improve the efficiencies of the clinker cooler used in cement industries, one should choose the optimum cooling air, the clinker input rate, the clinker bed depth, the clinker inlet temperature, the cooler length, the number of openings for air, and the grate speed (Mundhara and Sharma, 2005 Worrell et al., 2008).
Reciprocating type grate coolers can also be used to cool the clinker. The cooling air is used as secondary combustion air for the kiln to improve efficiency since the cooling air has been preheated during the process of cooling the clinker. After cooling, the clinker can be stored in the clinker dome, silos, bins, or

Clinker cooling is necessary because. 1. Hot clinker is difficult to convey. 2. Hot clinker has a negative effect on the grinding process. 3. Reclaimed heat content of the hot clinker is an important factor in lowering the production cost. 4. Proper cooling improves the quality of cement.
Dec 20, 2017 Gases from kiln and clinker cooler are used to preheat combustion air and also to generate power. Solid waste products from other industries, such as fly ash , slag, roasted pyrite residues, and foundry sand, are used as additives in cement production.
Clinker storage. Clinker after cooling in the clinker cooler, is transported by metallic conveyors and stored either in open or covered areas for aging which improves the grinding efficiency in the subsequent operation in the cement mills and increases the mill output rate. The aging of clinker is commonly done for a period not less than 20 days.
Clinker cooling. A very important process during cement production is the cooling of the clinker, since to a large extent the quality and characteristics of the cement depend on this phase. The hot clinker produced in the rotary kiln is transferred to a cooler, where it is cooled by air blowers before being conveyed to the cement mill.
