Resco Products has been servicing cement plants and rotary cement kilns for decades. Our experts are well-versed in the best practices for refractory product selection and rotary cement kiln installation: charging, calcining, burning, and discharge zones.
The charging zone brick lining can exhibit alkali spalling; Seneca 60P addresses that condition with superior resistance. On the other hand, the calcining zone refractories require higher alumina content for greater thermal resistance; Rescal 70D and Alumex P-8 are often best for this service.
The burning zone requires basic refractory for chemical compatibility with the clinker. Resco's basic brick plant was a North American pioneer in the manufacturing of magnesite-spinel brick. Rescomag 85 is our standard magnesite-spinel brick offering for this zone. Rescomag 92 FMS is best for the most severe conditions. Z-DOL is Resco's offering for dolomite burning zones.
Brick refractories in the discharge zone require abrasion and thermal shock resistance. Rescal 70D is our standard offering. For improved brick life especially when used against a retainer ring, Alumex P-7 and Alumex P-8 are recommended selections. Castables, including Kricon 32-70, QuikTurn 32-70, and the R-Max product family, offer exceptional service for the castable nose ring.
