PentoMag® | Additive for cement plants
For coating control and plant efficiency

Coating treatment for cement plants

Simply explained

What, How & Why.

The best way to reduce slag buildup in cement plants.

PentoMag® for Cement Plant inhibits the vanadium effects

decreasing noticeably buildups and rings in the process

It deactivates the vanadium, its catalytic effect is eliminated

therefore, the oxygen that would be consumed for this reaction remains available in the system to achieve a better combustion (lower kcal / kg of clinker consumption).

Due to the modification of the properties of existing buildups and rings

they will be easier to remove from the surface they are attached to (cyclone, precalciner
and kiln)

Summary

Hard coating & ring formation

PentoMag® for Cement Plant is a modern fuel additive
to prevent issues such as buildups in cyclones and
precalciner, as well as rings in the rotary kiln.
Sulfur and vanadium content in petcoke speed up the
buildups and rings formation, and makes them hard and
therefore more difficult to clean.
PentoMag® for Cement Plant inhibits the vanadium effects,
decreasing noticeably buildups and rings in the process.
Due to the modification of the properties of existing
buildups and rings, they will be easier to remove from
the surface they are attached to (cyclone, precalciner
and kiln).

Action principle

Increase combustion efficiency

ESP top view (without conditioning)

Another problem related to the vanadium content in petroleum coke is the formation of vanadium pentoxide, which acts as a catalyst in the oxidation of SO2 to SO3 (gas). When PentoMag® for Cement Plant deactivates the vanadium, its catalytic effect is eliminated, therefore, the oxygen that would be consumed for this reaction remains available in the system to achieve a better combustion (lower kcal / kg of clinker consumption).

Improvement of safety conditions in cyclone & precalciner cleaning activities
Cleaning the cyclone and precalciner is hard physical
work, requiring special PPE, a high-pressure water
pump, and trained personnel for the operation.
The application of PentoMag® for cement substantially
reduces hazardous work for operating personnel.

Benefits

Precision and reliability of the dosing system

Pentol develops and produces reliable dosing equipment specifically for its range of additives. The product is generally added to the petroleum coke just before the fuel mill. The dosing skid is designed for a smooth integration with the automatic plant control system.

Advantages of additives in slurry form
Fuel additives have already been used for many years, initially in powder form. Practical experience was, however, not satisfactory, first of all because of relatively high particle size of powder components (typically 150 microns). The smaller the particle the greater the active surface.
Pentol is the first manufacturer who developed production of fuel additives in form of stable slurry containing micronized active substances in oil suspension. Slurry is also resistant to water (powder will agglomerate in contact with moisture and its efficiency will be strongly limited). Also, storage of additives in slurry form is easier and dosing more precise.

Maintenance

PentoMag is safe. Transportation, storage & use

Chemical composition and production process of PentoMag® for Cement Plant minimizes safety hazards
related to transport, storage and use of the additive.
Fulfilling elementary procedures described in the Material Safety Data Sheet prevents any danger from personnel being in touch with the product.

50 years of Pentol’s experience

Pentol was founded in 1969 and has more than 50 years of experience with additives for coal and fuel oil fired boilers and furnaces. Since that time, composition and manufacturing process were continuously improved.
High concentration and stability of slurry additives were achieved. Additives can be stored for a long time without losing their properties.
Application of PentoMag® for Cement Plant does not cause any negative side effects for kiln operation and on clinker quality.
