Eisenmann rotary kilns are ideal for waste heat recovery from solids and/or sludge. Depending on the input material, you can deploy brick-lined or all-steel rotary kilns. The input material also determines whether the kiln is operated in co-current or counter-current mode. Eisenmann designs and supplies peripheral components, such as input material storage and preparation, feeding systems, waste heat recovery and made-to-measure flue gas purification systems, customized to suit your requirements and in line with your input material.

Eisenmann can provide rotary kilns in the following configurations:

  • Directly or indirectly heated
  • Co-current (burner and feeding system located at same end) or counter-current (burner and feeding system located on opposite ends) operation
  • All-steel (T < 650/700°C) or brick-lined (T > 700°C) construction
