Trainee:
Job title:
Plant & Business Unit:

1. In the following case, would you say:

 The color of the shaft is not correct ‫ڤ‬


 There is very high wear on the liner leading to misalignment of shaft compared to housing ‫ڤ‬
 The rust on the shaft end shows oxydation ‫ڤ‬
2. In the following case, would you say :

 The oil bucket is a little bit twisted ‫ڤ‬


 There are some dark areas showing that bearing has burned in the past ‫ڤ‬
 The oil film does not cover the whole shaft, and there is some bronze in the oil ‫ڤ‬

3. In the following case, would you say :

 There is too high an axial pressure on the roller (skewing) and no oil is visible on the thrust disc.
The grooves on the thrust disc are showing that they are already damaged ‫ڤ‬
 The color of the oil in the corner is not correct, possibly dirty housing ‫ڤ‬
 The shiny thin line on the shaft indicates a liner defect. ‫ڤ‬

4. In the following case, would you say :

 The color of the roller is strange ‫ڤ‬


 The roller has slightly shifted on the shaft by a few mm. There is maybe something wrong on the
shrink-fit ‫ڤ‬
 The dark area on the shaft shows that the liner has been under too much pressure at this spot ‫ڤ‬

5. In the following case, would you say :

 We have some hot-spots, we have to stop the kiln because shell will be damaged forever ‫ڤ‬
 We have some hot-spots, but they are all small and we can continue to produce ‫ڤ‬
 We have some hot-spots but we still have the same steel characteristics ‫ڤ‬

6. In the previous case, what is the temperature of the hottest point?

 Lower than 400°C ‫ڤ‬


 Ranging from 400°C to 600°C ‫ڤ‬
 Higher than 600°C ‫ڤ‬

7. In the following case, would you say :

 There is a crack on the tyre: it is small and can be repaired at next stoppage which has been
scheduled in two months. It will allow work preparation. ‫ڤ‬
 There is a crack, small, but we know it will extent quickly and therefore we should address it in the
near future ‫ڤ‬
 One of the cracks is small in length, but as it is 1/2 of the tyre thickness, the tyre must be repaired in
emergency before it gets fully opened ‫ڤ‬

8. In the following case, would you say :

 The pads are bent under the tyre, coming from the shell which is bulged (too quick preheating) ‫ڤ‬
 The tyre has too many defects and must be ground until the contact surface is 100% ‫ڤ‬
 There is too high corrosion on the shell and the pads due to rain ‫ڤ‬

9. In the following case, would you say :

 The different colors on the roller are showing different pressures between tyre & roller ‫ڤ‬
 The blue color comes from the too high temperature of the roller ‫ڤ‬
 The roller has been repaired by welding but is failing again (cracks) ‫ڤ‬

 The fans are not in the right direction of the kiln ‫ڤ‬
 There is a crack in the shell and the kiln ‫ڤ‬
 There is a problem with refractory bricks ‫ڤ‬
