In Smelting process metallic Lead is obtained
in Short Rotary Furnaces at temperatures varying from 1000°C to 1400°C.
This process is a batch process, in which the Lead Scrap is fed in
Batches to the Rotary Furnace. The reduction reaction is carried out in
the Rotary furnace.
time per batch is very critical for obtaining the maximum
To expedite the furnace charging operation , any one
of the following equipments are used:-
The rotary furnace is
Charged with :
- - Vibratory
- - Pushers
- - Screw
The Smelted Lead from the furnace is then
collected into Bullion Moulds, mounted on automated trolleys.
Gas/ Oil burners can be used for the
smelting operation. Oxy-Fuel burners can be used for Rotary Furnaces of
pollution control system consists of settling chamber, cyclone, cooling
ducts, spark arrestor, bag filter, wet scrubber and chimney. The
temperature of gases is measured at various points.
We have successfully manufactured and supplied
Rotary Furnaces from Batch Size 2 MT to 20 MT.
