    Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific


    Rotary kilns are concurrently used in several industries. The rotary kiln provides an efficient means for both heat and mass transfer in the processing of slurries and other condensed mixtures. Pigment and cement manufacturing industries among others are using rotary kilns for the thermal treatments of various materials. In the chemical recovery of Kraft pulping rotary kilns are applied for lime recycling. Process simulation software KilnSimu was used to simulate two different cases for lime kiln. KilnSimu is versatile simulation software that can handle many different kind of rotary kiln applications with chemical systems consisting of hundreds of phases and species.
