Rotary kilns are used to heat solids to the point where a required chemical reaction(s) takes place. The rotary kiln is basically a rotating inclined cylinder. Solids retention time in the kiln is an important design factor and is set by proper selection of the diameter, length, speed, slope and internals design. There are two basic types of rotary kilns; direct fired and indirect fired.
A rotary kiln is a steal round shell with refractory lining that rotates. This shell is rotated by a drive gear and electric or hydraulic drive system. The shell is supported on large bearings. The process system is designed so that material transfer from the grate to the kiln occurs when the material on the grate is sufficiently preheated to have the requisite indurate strength for subsequent processing in the rotary kiln.
Rotary kiln is made up of a strong reinforced steel outer shell that is coated with a heat-resistant inner lining, support rollers and a drive gear to keep the contents in a continuous rotating motion and internal heat exchangers capable of producing temperatures well over 2732 degrees Fahrenheit (1500 degrees Celsius). Rotary kilns will sit slightly at an angle so that the inner contents will be sifted downwards toward the heat source and allow for any evaporative gasses to escape from the top during the process through sealed ductwork.
