Rotary Kilns

FEECO International, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of rotary kilns. We have been supplying a durable line of thermal processing equipment for 60+ years. Our designs can address a vast array of bulk solid materials and processing requirements. FEECO supplies high temperature, refractory lined kilns for a number of applications and industries. All of our designs are developed with efficiency, durability and process flexibility in mind.

FEECO utilizes only the highest grades of industrial refractory, (either castable or fire brick) to cope with high temperature processes. Our engineering staff can incorporate a number of high tech, value added analyses to ensure satisfaction of each and every rotary kiln. We perform thorough heat transfer modeling to ensure proper characterization of fuel consumption and exhaust gas requirements. FEECO can perform finite element analysis on rotary kilns to ensure years of operation in spite of the mechanical rigors of elevated temperatures and massive rotating loads.
We supply rotary kiln systems to perform either endothermic (heat absorbing) or exothermic (heat liberating) processes. We have designed systems to operate in either parallel flow or counter current flow configuration. We have supplied rotary kiln units for mineral processes, such as calcining, catalyst recovery or treatment, and waste incineration from a number of sources.

Rotary Kiln Design

FEECO can offer cost competitive designs for units that process as little as one per hour in units 2 – 3 foot in diameter to massive units at up to 17 foot in diameter that process hundreds of tons per hour. We have successfully processed materials at temperatures in excess of 3000°F.

In addition to the kiln itself, FEECO can supply a complete system with services. These include:
  • Material Handling
  • Agglomeration
  • Drying
  • Afterburner / SCC
  • Baghouse / Scrubber
  • Acid Gas Removal
  • Product Cooling
  • Quench Tower
  • Field Assistance / Installation
  • Field Assistance / Start-up

Process Development with FEECO Pilot Kilns

The FEECO Lab offers a pilot kiln and batch kiln that can simulate conditions in continuous commercial rotary kilns, allowing our customers to test small samples of material under various process conditions. Able to operate in both co-current and counter-current flow, the FEECO test kilns offer a variety of options, such as a combustion chamber, afterburner, baghouse, and wet scrubber. Physical and chemical characteristics of the test material can be evaluated and analyzed by FEECO Lab Technicians at various process intervals.
