Summary

Laboratory tests showed that apart from the brick quality, the raw meal composition plays an important role on the lining life of cement rotary kilns. This paper reports the results obtained in these tests and their correlation with actual experience in the field. It was found that some compositions favor the coating formation to increase the lining life.
