Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR TREATING SOLIDS BY ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS PERMETTANT DE TRAITER DES MATIÈRES SOLIDES PAR RAYONNEMENT ÉLECTROMAGNÉTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Embodiments of the present invention feature apparatus and methods for removing impurities and water content from coal, fossil fuels and cellular biomass that can be readily adapted to existing facilities. One embodiment of the present invention, directed to an apparatus for exposing a coarsely divided solid material to radiation, has a housing having one or more walls forming a chamber having a top, midsection and a bottom. The chamber has a fill opening for receiving the coarsely divided solid material which fill opening is located proximal to the top. The chamber has an exit opening for discharging coarsely divided solid material which exit opening is located proximal to the bottom.
(FR)La présente invention concerne, selon des modes de réalisation, des procédés et un appareil permettant de soumettre un matériau solide grossier, tel que des combustibles fossiles solides, à un rayonnement micro-onde à l'aide d'une alimentation par gravité à travers une chambre et de protéger des fenêtres d'exposition au rayonnement par un positionnement en dehors de l'angle de glissement.
