چکیده مقاله

In recent years, there have been specific focus on improvement of productivity in cement industry due to decreased profitability as well as high rate of energy consumption and consequently increased production of carbon monoxide. Implementation of Industry 4.0 allows improved productivity and optimum use of energy and resources which directly lead to lower consumption of energy and better optimization of the production processes. Towards smart production, this paper reports on application of real-time x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers that perform real-time elemental and mineral analysis on raw and processed materials (solid and slurry) during different stages of production.  Online and real-time quality control in cement production lines enables managers to make right-time and fact-based decisions. Moreover, the obtained real-time vital data of the production line can later be used in digital twin model of the plant.
