worldwidekiln - rotary kiln services
Working hand-in-hand with the top fabricators ISO 9001-2000, ASME Section 8 -Division 1 in the industry our kiln, dryer and cooler shells are rolled to exacting tolerances and thermal stresses. We provide our customers with a large range of kiln dryer and cooler shell fabrication materials to cover a wide variety of specific applications. Our roller supports are designed using the latest technology and procedures for forging, shrink-fitting and hardening.
Using the latest most innovative and reliable lifting equipment and kiln shell cutting tools in the industry, World Wide Kiln Service can accomplish kiln shell section replacements in record time. Gear reversals, gear and tire changes, as well as kiln, dryer and cooler support roller & thrust roller replacements are accomplished with the minimum downtime thereby saving dollars in both installation costs and lost production time.
Our designers use the latest innovative kiln design tools, including both Auto Cad and Solid Works to interface with our customers engineering departments to provide the right unit for the right application.
Tire and trunnion grinding & resurfacing. World Wide Kiln Service's grinding machines have undergone a complete overhaul to the point that our research and development team has created the newest most unique machines in the industry today. Our kiln tire and trunnion grinding team will travel to your site and resurface your kiln tires and trunnions to 'like new' surfaces without causing any downtime. Our new machines use the latest in computer operated technology to provide the highest quality results with no negative impact on your productivity.
What is accomplished by tire and trunnion grinding or resurfacing?
As your rotary equipment ages various wear problems occur. Noticeable signs or conditions of wear such as spalling, pitting, cracking, roller over edges or "lips" can appear on the tires or trunnions. If the wear is allowed to continue these conditions can cause vibration, resulting in alignment problems. Costly power consumption, shortened bearing life of the rollers occur. If not corrected the problems can cause premature wear on the rollers bearing failure as well as damage to the tire retaining bars, the bases and drive components. Our specialized grinding machines can return the surfaces to "as new" condition often with a minimum removal of surface material. The grinding crew will then realign your kiln to provide mechanical stability.
World Wide Kiln Service performs kiln alignment with the unit shut down and cold. This enables us to "completely" inspect the kiln without being subjected to the high radian heat in and around the hot zones. At the same time we check for possible cracks at the filler pads and check for clearance between the tire I.D. and filler pad O.D. on the kiln. This is a more practical method than calculating tire gap by the "creep" method while the unit is in operation and hot. Tire and trunnion diameters are easily taken and the trunnion shafts are inspected for abnormalities. Having the tires and trunnions measured allows World Wide Kiln Service to return the kiln to its original centerlines in both planes of operation. This greatly reduces the stresses caused by misalignment and the potential for cracks on the kiln shell and refractory failure.
When an alignment is performed while the unit is cold it allows the technicians to report back to the client if there are any tapers - so informed decisions can be made to have the carrying surfaces ground when the kiln starts up.

Over time, wear problems are bound to occur with your rotary equipment. Uneven wear on the tire and trunnion may cause vibration, chattering, and poor efficiency. When the tire and trunnion surfaces show severe wear, action should be taken to correct the problem. Lack of maintenance could result in serious damage and downtime to your rotary drum. The damage could go beyond just the tire and trunnion and result in very expensive problems with bearings, piers, thrust rollers, and the gear and pinion. The best way to avoid these problems is tire and trunnion grinding and reconditioning.
Our personnel have a great deal of experience in tire grinding. Each machine was designed and built by OConnor Kiln & Dryer, Inc. The machines are capable of grinding 2 to 46 inch wide tires and trunnions. We are also able to set up and grind while the drum is in production, which will ensure you minimal downtime.
Tire and trunnion grinding is an integral component in any long-term maintenance plan for your dryer, cooler, agglomeration drum, or otherwise, helping to ensure that your rotary drum is running efficiently, as well as helping to prolong equipment life. Problems that begin at the drum base may seem insignificant, but left untreated, can quickly make their way to the rest of the drum, causing significant damage, and in some cases, even premature equipment failure. While these surfaces become worn through regular use, reconditioning them can return them to like-new condition.
Routinely inspecting tires and trunnion wheels can go a long way in preventing any potential problems from developing into something more serious. The following signs exhibited on any of the load-bearing surfaces are all indications that reconditioning is needed.
FEECO Customer Service Engineers are experts in rotary drum care and preventative maintenance. They are highly trained in reconditioning load-bearing surfaces and ensuring efficient operation. Our Customer Service Engineers can come to your site and often refurbish these surfaces during operation, without any downtime required. Contact us today to find out more about getting your load-bearing surfaces reconditioned.
