In addition to the uniform exposure of all bulk material parts, the focus of this rotary furnace is the organization of a continuous material transport through the furnace. Like no other type of furnace, this one requires a special adaptation to the material to be treated. Devices for material input and output as well as for dosing the material flow are function-determining elements and usually have to be adapted to the specific bulk material properties such as pourability, grain size and grain size distribution as well as particle hardness.
Conveyor belts, vibrating troughs, screw conveyors are used for feeding in combination with storage containers, which are often equipped with stirrers and looseners. In many cases, drivers and baffles are used in the rotary furnace to ensure constant material circulation.
The speciality of HTM REETZ is to combine the technical elements of the rotary furnace in such a way that material treatment in defined atmospheres is possible.
