There is the example of using grate-bars in the belt-type sintering machines in the scheme below. Lath bottom of the pallet cars consists of the grate firings, where the lay of the burden for the further sintering and receiving sinter is loaded.
Grate-bar is prone to wear and is a replaceable part. Its service durability and its cost influence considerably the capacity of the equipment and the prime cost of the received products.
The right choice of the shape and the material of the grate-bars is one of the main conditions of the furnace failure-free operation.
The examples of the grate-bars constructions:
The main requirements to the rational form of grate-bars are the following: heat-transport surfaces developed enough, good streamlining, right distribution of an open grate area, which provides a homogeneous air supply in separate zones of the grate.
The grate-bar material shall be highly wear-resistant, because grate-bars operate under the conditions of the cyclic effect of high-temperature gas flow. The medium temperature reaches 1100-1200 °C.
The company LCC "INTECH GmbH" produces grate-bars from special-purpose steels and alloys, which are used for production of parts that require an increased impact resistance (min. KCU = 500 kJ/m2) and high yield stress (max. σ = 600 MPa) and operate under static loads and high dynamic loads. The chemical composition of materials is the following:
