“A Revolution in Rotary
William E. (Bill) Stuble
Century Rotary Equipment Systems with..
Mass Produced, Lightweight, Off-the-Shelf, Modular Components
and Responsive Computerized Controls.
* Borrowed from Modern Railroad Technology.

Solid Cast Tyres Split or Solid Rails Welded in Place
Trunnions Paired Skewable Flanged Wheels
Fixed, Solid Base Support Sliding Baseplate / Hydraulic Suspension
Girth Gear Drive Multiple Friction Wheels
Manual Mechanical Alignment / Computer Controlled Hydraulic
Load Distribution Between Sliding Baseplates and Hydraulic Suspension.
New Rotary Technology…..
Computer Controlled “Self-Driving” Alignment
Automatic and Continuous Alignment Adjustment for:
- Load Changes
- Thermal Expansion
- Distortions in the Shell
- Foundation Movement
Process Change – Variable Speed and Slope
Drive Energy Reduced – Less Friction From Skewing Forces
Array of Support, Suspension, and Drive Modules. Low Cost Affords Redundancy.
Each Drive Control Is Connected to a Master Controller.
The New Rotary Economy…..
Off-the-Shelf, Mass Produced, Lightweight Modular Components
Eliminate Girth Gears and Thrust Buttons
Ease of Construction, Fast Delivery
Lower Capital Cost, Low Maintenance, Less Downtime
Redundant Components – Repair and Replace On-The-RUN
The New Rotary World…..
New Rotary Equipment Capabilities:
-- Higher Load Capacity (More Product, Internals, Refractory)
-- Higher Rotational Speeds
-- Longer Drums, Larger Diameter
-- Improved Adaptability for Thermal Expansion
(INSTEAD OF THE TYRE MOVING LATERALLY ACROSS THE FACE OF THE
FIXED CONVENTIONAL ROLLER, THE ROLLERS MOVE WITH THE KILN. THE EXPANSION
COEFFICIENT OF CARBON STEEL IS 0.0000067 INCHES/INCH/DEGF.)
The New Rotary World…..
-- New Process Applications
-- Competition with Spray Dryers, Flash Dryers, Fluid Beds
-- Improved Project Economics and Sustainability
-- Improved Rotary Equipment Business Opportunities
-- Replacement of Worn Out and Problematic Existing Tyres and
Trunnions – with Much Less Downtime
-- Sell, Partner or License US Patent 9,482,384
-- Secure International Patents Before January 2, 2017

-- Partner or Assist in the Commercialization of the
Develop the Technology - Cost Estimates:
Support, Suspension, Drive Modules * $500,000
Control Software * 300,000
Marketing and Promotion 100,000
Total Development Cost $1,000,000
• The controls and mechanics are complex, but well within the scope of 21st
century robotics and computerization.
Economics – ROI
The cost of manufacturing and delivering Design20FIRST Rotary Units is
estimated to be half the cost of a conventional rotary unit.
Other savings accrue from lower maintenance and operational costs.
The ROI / Payback on the investment in this new technology should be
An detailed economic evaluation of this new technology and resulting
new business opportunities is being prepared.
