While there are various carbon regeneration kiln manufacturers around the world, the Ansac Carbon Regeneration Kiln is one of the more common units that we come across in our travels. Though there have been a few cosmetic changes here and there that have a small impact on the functionality of the kiln, the Ansac design has mostly stayed the same over the past two decades.

In recent years, the Heat Systems team have been supporting and servicing more and more Ansac HC and HK horizontal indirectly fired carbon regeneration kilns in Australia and abroad. Over this time, we have noticed several common areas between the kilns that we have found need more focussed attention and, in some circumstances, modification.

In order to provide maintenance personnel a single source of information, Heat Systems have developed a supplementary manual providing important additional preventative maintenance information for both the HC and HK model Ansac Carbon Regeneration Kiln. This manual goes into detail about topics such as:

  • Kiln Equipment and Operational Safety.
  • Equipment descriptions, observations, learnings and recommendations.
  • Process description.
  • Preventative maintenance recommendations, instructions and timings.
  • Field instrumentation installation.
  • Opportunities for modifications to improve kiln productivity and to reduce maintenance downtime and costs.

The information supplied within the manual has been designed to provide as much additional detail for maintenance teams to use when maintaining the Ansac Carbon Regeneration Kiln. Although all care and attention has been used in the production of this manual, there are most likely going to be some maintenance items that have been missed.

If there is any item, topic or finding that you have further knowledge about and it feel needs to be added to this manual, then please don’t hesitate to contact us and provide us with your thoughts. We strongly support the sharing of knowledge to help our customers worldwide improve their operations.

Alternatively, if you would like one of our team to assist you in better understanding one or more of the topics within this manual, then please contact us. We are here to help.
