The sealing system consists of a mounting flange welded on to the kiln shell. The two connected halves of the split case engage at the seal disk which is screw mounted to the flange. Depending on requirements, two or four packing rings are provided and a thrust ring presses them against the seal disk. A spring mechanism generates the contact force for the packing rings.
A specially designed expansion joint compensates for axial (thermal) expansion and change in the position of the kiln shell. A torque damper prevents rotation of the seal carrier assembly.
With the exception of the seal disc, the entire sealing system is free moving and runs on roller supports in the damper. The seal is able to follow any movement by the oven with the sealing function remaining intact.
The seal disc compensates for radial deflection of the rotary kiln (caused by ovality, etc.) by submerging to a greater or lesser extent into the seal housing.
