The present invention has for its subject mat
ter a furnace capable of being used for. any
roasting or calciiialtionI operations upon pulveru
lent materials and in particular for oxidation,
5 reduction or other treatments of ores in the>
pulverulent state.
This furnace is constituted essentially by a
cylindrical body forming a. turbulent heater sur
mounted by a distributing extension and in which
10 the materials to be treated enter, with a spiral
movement with more or less flattened spirals.

The furnace comprises a cylindrical body 4I

takes a spiral descending movement in the said
space. In the course of the said movement the
material is uniformly distributed aroundthe cone m Ul
I so that the whole periphery of this cone is
equally covered‘with the same.
The speeding up of the mixture‘of gas and
material is progressively obtained 'through the
progressive throttling of the section of space a
between the cone l and the housing 2. The
mixture takes a speed which becomes greater
and greater as the mixture effects its spiral
descending movement and when it arrives in
the very narrow annular space b which is oc
cupied by the vanes 5 it is automatically carried
forth and directed into the inner part of the
heater I through the said vanes which are pref
erably curved in order to `flatten the spirals
