This week, the IFRF Handbook opens a new publication campaign in support of the Cement and Minerals Processing industrial sector of the IFRF membership.  Barrie Jenkins has agreed to act as the IFRF Sub-editor responsible for the development of this area of the handbook. Barrie is an engineering consultant in the minerals processing area, and also a Visiting Professor at the University of Adelaide in Australia. He is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the IFRF Research Station.

The first combustion file for the Minerals Processing sector has been placed in the Handbook’s ‘open domain’ for wide dissemination:

CF248: What are shaft kilns for lime manufacture? – Open domain

My thanks to Barrie for authoring this Combustion File, and to Marc Vansnick of Loist who acted as referee. Barrie and the Handbook production team would welcome comments on this new initiative from IFRF members active in the Minerals Processing sector. Please email us at handbook@ifrf.net , or use the the email link to Barrie at the head of CF248.

To read or download this and other recently published files, please go to www.handbook.ifrf.net, and select ‘New Combustion Files’ after accepting the disclaimer screen. Other Combustion Files on related themes may be found by using the links built into CF248 and/or by searching the Handbook with the  keywords like ‘minerals’ or ‘Lime’  or try any of the fuels that may be of specific interest to you.
