What will you get from this live Workshop?

This being a live workshop, I am sure that what you will learn here will be a certain practical knowledge and step by step to do activities for doing process analysis of your pyro process. You are having a great opportunity to ask any question in the training session about the subject and understand the process completely. You have a private 1 to 1 live session [2-3 hours] so that you can ask all those questions that you may not be comfortable asking in a group Zoom session.

Here is a summarized mention of the things you will take away from this workshop.

You will learn the procedures and standard practices to take process measurements with portable instruments like Anemometer, pitot tube, TC/RTD, radiation pyrometer, and a portable gas analyzer.

You will learn all concepts from the basics regarding the combustion process, starting with the mole concept and calorific value of fuel,  you will learn how much air is required for combustion in a kiln and calciner, and how much combustion products/gases we produce in the combustion process and what is the exact composition of that flue gas. You learn everything about combustion equations and a lot more. You will not only learn but practice many use cases of your plant and calculate all that you will learn using online calculators.

You will learn and you will be capable, by the end of this workshop to do mass and heat balance of any section of your plant, yes we will give you a step-by-step pathway for writing mass and heat balance of pyro section, kiln, and cooler. More than 50- example use cases of evaluating mass and heat quantities to establish mass and heat balance are included in training lessons.

And at the end, we will take up the application part of doing mass and heat balance, and you will calculate all KPIs [Process KPIs, Quality KPIs, Productivity KPIs, and Reliability KPIs to mention a few.] from the process measurements we will be taken or provide to you as sample measurements and from the mass and heat balance sheet, which we will be developing in this workshop.

We recommend you to skim through the course curriculum below to see in detail which topics are covered in this training course.

Happy Learners From CIN e-Learning Platform

A senior Chemical Engineer and Managing Director of two companies dealing with AF,  aiming to go 100% on alternative fuels in his cement kiln projects took the training and said that "The course has refreshed his skills of doing process audit of pyro process".

Neville Roberts

Chemical Engineer from KSA. "I have taken 2 courses so far and found the lessons very easy to understand, ready to work on in plant and achieved a deep knowledge of pyro process"


Chemical Engineer from Egypt. "I have taken 3 courses so far and found the lessons very comprehensive to answer all of my questions about the subject" On his suggestions we have added more use cases to solve day-to-day issues of cement plants.
