An equipment and method are proposed for displacing hot loads on account of their heat. Applications are
considered for container pipe transportation in nonferrous metallurgy.
To save energy from external sources in the
transportation of hot loads, it is proposed to displace them on
account of their heat. A device for this
container 1 (Fig. 1a ) with sleeve seal 2 moving in the
pipeline 3. In the front of the container in the vessel 4
containing the hot load there is a sealed vessel 5 filled for
example with water. Vessel 5 communicates with the water
jacket 6 (Fig. 1b ), which serves to preheat the water on
contact with the hot load and to reduce the heat transfer by
the load-bearing structure 7 in the container. The water jacket
in turn communicates with the heat exchanger 8, which is
located in the hot load. At the output from the heat exchanger
there is the valve 9 adjusted to the design pressure in the
pipe 3. To reduce the dynamic and thermal loads on the
load-bearing structure 7, the container is suspended by the
rollers 10 with gap to the load-bearing structure.
The container 1 placed in the inclined part 11 (Fig. 1c )in
the receiving station is retained by the pin 12 and filled with
water. After slide valve 13 is opened, the container is freed
from the pin and passes into the part 14, and the next
container replaces it. In the loading section, the container is
loaded with the transported material with steam formation
temperature, after which the lid 15 of the loading section 16
and the slide valve 13 are closed, while slide valve 17 is
opened. The water poured into vessel 5 (Fig. 1, a–c)ofthe
container 1 and the water in the jacket 6 are heated by the hot
material to the evaporation temperature and pass into the
heat exchanger 8, in which they are transformed into steam.
The steam acts on the valve 9 adjusted to the design pressure
and enters the closed cavity between the container 1 and the
slide valve 13 in the loading section. The compressed steam
acts on the sleeve seal 2 and the container begins to move.
After the container has passed the gate valve 17, it is closed,
and the container continues to move through the pipe 3.
