Rotary Kiln Applications & Materials

Applications for rotary kilns continue to grow to meet new processing needs. Some of the most common applications for rotary kilns include:

  • Recovery from Waste (Metals, Lime)
  • Sintering/Glassification (Proppants, Ceramics)
  • Calcination (Gypsum, Bauxite, Calcium Carbonate)
  • Upgrading (Phosphate Ore)
  • Thermal Desorption and Combustion (Organic Impurities, Hazardous Wastes)
  • Organic Combustion (Organic Wastes)
  • Heat Setting (Roofing Granules)

Why Choose FEECO?

The advantages to a FEECO rotary kiln are that it is built to the highest quality standards and is backed by over 60 years of process design experience.

The FEECO Innovation Center offers batch and pilot scale kilns that can simulate conditions in continuous commercial rotary kilns, allowing our customers to test small samples of material under various process conditions, as well as part of a continuous process. With options in both co-current and counter-current flow, and direct or indirect configurations, the FEECO test kilns offer a variety of options to suit your thermal testing needs. We also offer support equipment such as a combustion chamber, afterburner, baghouse, and wet scrubber for testing.
