Kiln Support Saddle

Kiln Support Saddle

During a plant outage, a cement customer found that their kiln lifting beam (or saddle) was buckling due to the compression forces between the kiln and the hydraulic cylinders used to lift the kiln off its trunnion rollers.  ZAP provided a redesigned lifting device suitable for use at any of the three kiln tires.  After the loads were estimated and available space constraints confirmed, the saddle’s stresses were calculated using finite element analysis to identify peak stresses within the weldment.
