French term or phrase: bouchage
"Nombre de jours de marche annuels du four, grands arrêts pour maintenance
Si arrêts prolongés pourquoi : marché, fiabilité, bouchages de four ou de cyclones, disponibilité des combustibles ou des matières premières, coût de l’énergie électrique, autres raisons ?"

From a cement works quarry audit document. With reference to the burning/firing process after grinding of the raw mix.

Lots of hits for clogging of cyclones and kiln NOZZLES, but not of the kilns themselves:

When a large amount of the volatile components is brought by the raw material and fuel in this case, the amount of the volatile components in the clinker is increased, by which the quality of cement is adversely affected.

Further, when the amount of the volatile components is increased in the system, since compounds of low melting point are made, the preheater is often clogged, by which the stable operation of the kiln is obstructed.

The resulting kiln operation is poor with symptoms as:
„FƒnFrequent kiln stops due to cyclone cleaning and clogging problems
„FƒnHigher heat consumption
„FƒnReduced kiln production rate
Limits on volatile components within the SP kiln system
Experience shows that surpassing the normal limits of volatile matter, shown in the table in Figure 4.14, will lead to a growing tendency of cyclone blockages and the formation of build-ups in exposed areas of the kiln system. Frequent cleaning must be expected.
Kiln operation frequently becomes impossible and frequent kiln stops are to be expected for cleaning away deposits and blocked cyclones if values are beyond the maximum limits shown in figure 4.14
