The demands on this energy-intensive branch of industry in terms of emission limits and resource efficiency are high. The requirements on automation are equal. Especially for mechanical and plant engineering companies of the steeland lime industry TRIPS could collect broad experiences with the control and optimization of industrial furnaces.

TRIPS engineers and technicians could apply these experiences in numerous projects dealing for example with parallel flow regenerative shaft kilns, single shaft kilns or rotary kilns: They have been designing the electrical engineering, the software engineering for controls and process control systems, they have been assembling, wiring and testing the switchgears as well as commissioning the systems.
