Long kiln

If the length to diameter ratio significantly exceeds 15:1 or if special circumstances result in a particularly high kiln weight or unfavourable distances between supporting stations, the rotary kiln must have more than 3 supports.


This may occur if the process requires long material retention times (long kiln for wet processes), if the kiln is operated with a high filling ratio or if the kiln is equipped with a planetary cooler.


Thanks to our decades of experience in rotary kiln engineering, Polysius also offers the optimum choice of units and equipment for long kilns.
