JETFLEX 2.0 – a burner to solve the alternative fuels challenge
The latest evolution in cement kiln burner technology
Our JETFLEX 2.0 cement kiln burners offer a high degree of fuel flexibility. Use pulverised coal or petcoke, anthracite, oil, natural gas – or any mixture of these – as well as alternative fuels (such as plastic and wood chips, sewage sludge). The results are the same. Switching from fossil fuels to more environmentally-friendly alternative fuels is one of the easiest ways to reduce carbon emissions associated with cement production. Yet high thermal substation rates can pose a challenge to process stability and impact plant productivity. No longer. Our JETFLEX 2.0 burners deliver optimum flame shaping and lowest NOx emissions, whatever your fuel mix. And with capacities available up to 250MW, we can cater to even the largest of rotary kilns. The latest JETFLEX 2.0 design offers an upgrade to our original JETFLEX burners with features including:
The improved expansion joint for guiding fuel injection pipes ensures accurate control of thermal elongation during operation.
The front plate has been strengthened to extend operating life and comes as a single unit to facilitate swift replacement.
Flame formation is controlled by separate systems for axial and swirl air, ensuring fast ignition and stable flame formation with a shorter and more-intense flame.
The JETFLEX 2.0 enables solid fuels to be injected via a common fuel injection pipe, reducing cold airflow and so improving heat and power consumption.
The JETFLEX 2.0 is available in the same two models as the original JETFLEX burners: a standard JETFLEX 2.0 burner and the JETFLEX 2.0 PLUS burner. Both designs are optimised for reduced container shipment cost and time, as the design incorporates a simplified structure with a detachable beam and reduced overall length.
