The rotary kiln remains in active use 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 of particles.
Pigment and cement manufacturing industries among others
are using rotary drums for the thermal treatments of
various materials. In the chemical recovery of kraft
pulping rotary drums are applied for lime recycling.
Other uses include manufacture of oxides (aluminium,
zinc, lead), reduction of ores and waste incineration.
