Tertiary Air Duct (TAD)

TERTIARY AIR DUCT (TAD)

Air from the grate cooler is filled with highly abrasive clinker dust as well as residual alkali vapors. When it is travelling through the tertiary air duct at a velocity of 25-30 m/s and an initial temperature of about 1050°C, it wears down the lining particularly at bends and dampers. Abrasion resistance and alkali resistance are both important in tertiary air duct refractories.
