R.D. Prengaman, A.H. Mirza, in Lead-Acid Batteries for Future Automobiles, 2017 20.5.2 Rotary furnace smelting. Rotary furnaces are batch furnaces that generally utilize oxy-fuel burners and limit the volume of off-gases. The rotary furnace design gives high utilization of the input energy compared with the stationary furnace; they are very flexible and can accept a wide variety of feed materials.

Because of this, the furnace can be maintained at a temperature in the range from 1,300 to 1,400℃, which is higher than that for rotary kilns and increases the reduction rate and productivity. The process is also characterized by flexibility regarding various raw materials, including iron ore fines, steel mill waste and non-coking coal.
