Technical details

The equipment is composed by two electrical heated rotary kilns, with metallic rotary tube each, plus a transport system to feed and discharge the material.
In the transport system also a bulk bag handling station is present.
Both kilns are independent gas tight units and could be heated up to 1100 °C. A cooling zone (indirect cooling) is also present.
Rotary kilns are mounted  on a profile steel tilting frame and are adjustable horizontally together with its inclination, via a hydraulic cylinder and pump.

The kilns could be used for thermal treatments (i.e. reduction and oxidation reactions)

The material is fed into the heating zone of the kiln through an automatic and software controlled transport unit; once the thermal process is terminated, the material is transported to a cooling zone and then discharged.
The automatic and software controlled transport system allows also to collect the material in a bulk-bag.
Process gases like air and nitrogen could be introduced into the kiln via a MFC; the gases used in the process, after passing through a filter, are eventually sent to a burner by a dedicated exhaust gas line.
For every kiln, N.4 filters are installed; each filter has its own control unit for an automatic cleaning of the cartridges.
Furnaces are gas tight and a series of environmental sensor is present to detect any leak.
Each furnace has a separate switch unit, designed for operating, control, temperature regulation and supervision of the rotary tube furnace.
Every process operation of the kiln is controlled by  a program controller. The software is protected by password, for different user levels.
Moreover all the safety of the process (such as overtemperature, gas leakings, internal clogging, level sensors) is controlled by the installed software. UPS for emergency, used to control the shutdown of the furnace and the rotary tube emergency drive.
