The present invention relates to the treatment or valves adapted to discharge material to the
of material including a step of burning or roast
next lower hearths and at the same time to pre- >
ing, and more particularly to treatment in which vent the passage of gases through the correspond
moisture and volatile constituents are driven oiî
by heating in a preliminary stage of operation
and the solid residue is roasted or burned.
The principal objects of the invention are to
provide novel, advantageous and eflicient appa
ratuses and processes for effecting treatment of
this kind. An important feature- of the appara
tus resides in providing a multiple-hearth fur
nace, in which the material is fed downwardly
from hearth to hearth through outlets for said
hearths, with material-feeding devices or valves
at certain hearths to pass the material through
the corresponding outlets while preventing the
passage of gases. In this Way the zones of treat
ing outlets.
‘
Preheated air is admitted to the burning sec
tion and hot gases drawn from this section are
passed through the uppermost and drying sec
tion to dry the material preparatory to burning.
The gases are cooled considerably in the drying
zone and mixed with vapors and then passed 10
to the lowermost or deodorizing zone. Not all
of the hot gases are passed to the drying zone,
the rest of them being passed to the lowermost
or deodorizing section and serving to raise the
temperature of the gases from the 'drying sec
tion.> To»k assure complete combustionV of the
gases, additional heating for the lowermost sec
ment, corresponding to the _compartments over tion may be provided, as by the use of one or ,
the. various hearths„may be separated into groups more iìuid fuel burners. The proportions of the
of zones, between which there is no direct passage vhot gases 'passing from the burning section to 20V
of gases, for example an uppermost drying group, the drying section and to the deodorizing section
an intermediate or central group and a lower
most deodorizing group.
Correspondingly the
furnace would include an uppermost drying sec
tion, a central burning section and a lo-wermost
final combustion and deodorizing section.
Other features relate to the use of part of the
combustion gases from theburning section to as
sist the drying operation in the drying section and
20 the ñnal burning in the lowermost section, to the
treatment of gases and vapors from the drying
section in the lower section for final burning and
deodorizing, and to the manner in which heat
from one part is` utilized in another.
>While applicable to Vthe treatment of various
materials, the present invention is particularly
adapted for the disposal of waste material such
as sewage solids in the form of sludge or screen
ings having a high moisture content.
In carrying out the invention, especially as ap
plied to the disposal of sewage solids, use may
be made ofy a multiple-hearth furnace compris
ing vertically spaced hearths with outlets at the
center of one and the periphery of the next and
vice versa, and rabbling means comprising a hol
low shaft and rabbling devices extending there
from over the hearths and arranged so as to work
may be varied-as required. Preferably'the draft
in the burning zone and theV drying section is
concurrent with the movement of material in
these zones and in the lowermost section is coun
in supplying tothe burning section air preheated
in the portion of the hollow shaft passing through » 30
the deodorizing section and part of the burning
section. If desired, burners may be used in theV ì
drying hearth and of course in the burning Zone.
« The gases may be discharged from the >lower
most or deodorizing section in any suitable man
ner, as by means including a suction fan con
nected with the outlet of the deodorizing section. 40
There maybe a considerable quantity of heat
in the gases-drawn from the deodorizing section
and this may be 'recovered to a considerable ex
tent, as by passing the gases through a waste
heat boiler installation.
`
Obviously the raising of temperature, to `pro
which they are associated.
siderable readily combustible be mixed with the
less combustible sewage solids, the amount of
supplementary fuel to be used may be reduced
substantially. In some cases such additional
tion, a central or burning section and a lower
most or `deodorizing section. Such division of
the furnace may be effected by selecting certain
55 hearths and providing at their outlets devices

high temperature of the gases, it is desirable to
recover some of this heat. 'I‘his may be done in
any suitable manner as by using the gases to heat
a waste-heat boiler 58 comprising a water drum
of gases and divide the furnace into an» uppermost
drying> section, an intermediate burning section »
and a lowermost section for subjecting the gases
59, steam drums 60 and tubes 6| connecting the
water drum with the steam drums. The hot gases
from the flue 53 pass into the lower part of a
to high temperatures to completev combustion
furnace chamber 62 and between the tubes 6|,
being directed to the tubes by a bridge wall 63
10 extending upwardly from the bottom of the cham
ber to the water drum 59. After passing between
thereof and remove noxious odors- before dis
charge from the furnace, means for supplying
preheated air to the burning sec-tion, a duct con
ducting hot gases from the burning section to the
drying section, a duct connecting the drying sec
tion with the lowermost section of the furnace,
the tubes 6|, the gases pass through a duct 64 to
a fan 65 which delivers them to the stack 53a.
The operation may be substantially as follows:
and a flue connected with said lowermost sec
15 In starting the apparatus material is introduced
tion to discharge gases of combustion from the
into the uppermost compartment oi the furnace,
the rotation of the shaft 29 started and the fans
38 and 65 started. The burners 52 associated
furnace.
2. Apparatus of the class described comprising
a multiple-hearth furnace having vertically
with the burning section may also be started as
20 well as the burner 52 for the> drying section and
one or more burners 52 for the deodorizing sec
spaced hearths with outlets through which the '
material introduced at the top of the furnace may 20
pass downwardly to the lowermost hearth and.
then be discharged from the furnace, means at '
the outlets of two hearths to prevent the passage
of gases and divide the furnace into an uppermost
tion. Ordinarily the burner or burners 52 for
the drying lsection may be turned off after the
furnace is heated up, but some or all'of the burn
25 ers in the burning section will be kept in use. In
drying section, an intermediate burning lsection 25
some-instances, the material being treated may
contain enough easily combustible material of
high caloriñc value- to furnish all the necessary
heat in the burning section, thus making it pos
30 sible to dispense with the use of the burners in
the burning sectionr after the furnace is fully
heated up.
.
Due to the action of the fan $5` the pressure
in the flue 53 will be below atmospheric pressure
35 and there will be a down draft in the burning
section from the outlets 40 in the shaftl 29 to the
lowermost compartment of the section from
which the hot gases may pass through the duct
48 to the upper part óf the drying section or di
40 rectly to the lower part >of the deodorizing sec
tion through the duct 58 as controlled bythe
damper 5|. From the bottom of the drying sec
tion the gases, substantially cooled in drying the
materiah will ñow through the duct 49 to the
45 lower part of the deodorizing section where they
will be mixed with the hot gases introduced
through the duct 50 and finally burned and de
odorized with the use ofthe burners 52 when
necessary. In normal operation the temperature
50 of the gases flowing through the duct 48 may be
about 1200° F. and the temperature-of the gases
flowing through the duct 49 may be about 350° F.
It should be noted that in the drying and burn
ing section the flow of gases is concurrent with
55 the ñow of material and in the deodorizing sec
tion the ñow vof gases is counter-current to the
flow of material. It will be -evident that the
passing of the preheated air downwardly through
the centrall burning section causes the combus
60 tion gases and vapors to pass through the low
and hottest part of the burning section, thus tend
ing to eliminate odors, and that the passing of
some hot gases from the burning zone downwardly
through the drying section assures the applica
65 tion of the greatest'amount of heat to the ma
terial at the beginning ofthe drying operation.
It should be understood that various changes
may be made and that various features may be
used Without others, without departing from the
70 true scope and spirit oi the invention.
