Carbon Regeneration Kilns

Heat Systems Carbon Regeneration Kilns are ideal for all Carbon Recovery needs. The TR Series Kilns are designed and engineered with three main principles in mind:

  1. To extend the life of the equipment;
  2. To perform servicing and maintenance with less difficulty; and
  3. Designed with the ability to plug-in additional units.

The Heat Systems TR Series Kilns are SCADA ready and have remote access capabilities. Your process can be monitored from a mobile device, from anywhere in the world. Additionally, we can update process parameters on the TR series kilns within 24 hours of receiving your service request, without having to put boots on the ground.

Indirect Fired Kilns

Horizontal indirect fired kilns have proven to be the ‘work-horse’ of carbon regeneration for decades. The concept of the equipment is based on a rotating tube within a hot combustion chamber. This tube is fed with fouled carbon from a feed screw. Since the tube has angled lifters, its rotary motion imparts a gentle momentum to the carbon.  The gentle motion serves to expose the carbon to the regenerative atmosphere and heat transfer surfaces whilst taking care not to fracture the carbon.

The kiln heat tube has a variable speed capability which has an influence on residence time. This in turn has an effect on the quality of the carbon regeneration. Every rotation removes a ‘cut’ from the solid bed using a simple scroll mechanism. As carbon flows through the tube it is dried and regenerated (or reactivated) to approximate or better than it’s initial virgin state.

Gold Furnaces

Heat Systems offer a range of furnace sizes designed for efficient, high-temperature use with minimal maintenance. These furnaces feature fast heat-up times, simple control and smooth pouring action.

The robust design is a result of ample premium grade refractory and material thickness. We also offer a range of high conductivity / shock-resistant crucibles to suit your batch size.

Accessories such as cascade tables and slag catchment boxes can be customised to suit, providing you with a perfect turn-key solution for your smelting furnace or gold furnaces.

Elution Heaters

Heat Systems has the capability to design and manufacture complete thermal oil elution heaters or direct eluate heating packages to suit your process requirements.

Our standard elution and direct eluate heaters utilise gas or liquid fuels while custom designed heat plants are available on request for clients looking to utilise waste heat, solid fuel or electricity.

Control system options are available to suit your needs and budget, starting with basic relay logic panels and progressing through to programmable logic controllers with touch screens and the latest technology air/fuel ratio burner management systems.

Our heaters can come as either a direct eluate heater, or as a thermal oil heater (where the heat is transferred from the oil to the eluate via a suitably sized heat exchanger). Both versions can be sized specifically to suit your exacting requirements.

Heat Systems is the Australian Distributor for the Duratherm range of thermal oil products and cleaners.

Cooling / Heating Conveyors

The Heat Systems screw conveyor is a simple, robust and flexible device, which is often employed to adjust the temperature of a solid material prior to storage or further processing. The unit is essentially a screw conveyor with heat transfer capability, providing both material movement and temperature adjustment in one device.

Other suppliers typically employ an external jacket to act as the sole heat transfer surface. The problem is that this surface has limited contact with the material due to voidage and movement, generally resulting in a larger unit than necessary being specified to compensate. However, the Heat Systems conveyor also uses the screw itself to supply or withdraw heat, thereby penetrating deep into the solid which is often a poor conductor (e.g. spent carbon). This effectively results in a smaller, more compact footprint and cost.

A liquid heat transfer medium ensures stable and precise control of the final product temperature (e.g. cooling water, thermal oil, glycol etc). As always, custom designs are available to suit your individual need.

Heat Transfer Fluids

Heat Systems has the capability to design and manufacture complete heat transfer fluid (otherwise called thermal oil) elution heaters or direct eluate heating packages to suit your process requirements.

Our standard elution and direct eluate heaters utilise gas or liquid fuels while custom designed heat plants are available on request for clients looking to utilise waste heat, solid fuel or electricity.

Control system options are available to suit your needs and budget, starting with basic relay logic panels and progressing through to programmable logic controllers with touch screens and the latest technology air/fuel ratio burner management systems.
