A fullymachined heat-trca ted forged steel tire23, rectangularin cross section, is positioned on eachsid 'of the girth gear. The outer periphery 24 of outer cylindrical 'fshell 12 at its endsis machined to a slightly jsmaller' diameter vthan the intermediate annular seat forltheg'irth'gean.

"' Two adaptorsZS and 26 are employed for ;connecting the" tire section'tothe ladjoining shell sections. of the kiln. Adaptor 25 is essentially a single shell,.;hollo,w

On each side of gear 58 there is positioned a forged steel, heat treated trunnion roller tire 60 of rectangular cross section, mach1ned all over with an outside diameter identical to the theoretlcalpitch diameter ofthe pinion 58. The trunnion roller tires are held against axial displacement .by retainer rings 61.,

' Standard anti-friction bearing technique is employed for shaft 43 and the arrangement shown is illustrative only... Themachincd end v62 of shaft43receives race; 50 and this race is secured "against longitudinal movement at one end thereof by means shown at 63' which may comprise a star wash audlock nut and by a fixedring 38 at its opposite end. Suitable means for securmg the '15 outer race ring-52 may comprise rings 39 and 40.

A sealing plate 64 prevents dust from entering the bearing area. Shaft 43 is supported at its opposite end in rollerbearings andthe shaft has a reduced terminal section 66. The inner race 68, of this bearing is suitably cylinder withan foutwardly extending annular flange 30 and'having gussets 31 radially disposed about the shell ,to

reinforce the flange where "it joins the shell. The, outer face29 of. the annular flange adjoins the end wall ofltire 23' ahd this face has a central recessedscction 32 which is machined perpendicular to the axis of the cylinderand receives the end of shell weldment 10 so that after assembly concentric alignment of the adpators with .t he

. Theinnerface -34 of the adaptor .flange 3.0. and the outer: ends 35. of the gussets are machined to a predetermined depth with the plane of the :inne'nface parallel with outer face 32 and the diameter established by the machined cut concentric with the axis of the adaptor. Theouter periphery 36- of the adaptor. shell, froma point 37 adjacent ,to the point. of connection ofthe gussets with the shell,'and outwardly for-its full length, ismachined to a predetermined diameter and this outer periphery is concentric with the axis of the adaptor.

Afullymachinedheat treated forged steel thrust tire 41 having a diagonal thrust face 42 is provided to transfer the thrust load, incident to the. slope of the kiln, to a thrust, roller- The outside diameters of this thrust'tire,

V the fiange.3 0 and the tire. 23 are identical and are equal of thrust tirej4i1- The purpose of this assembly is to. provide a gear linkage which will impart synchronous rotation to a. thrust roller 74 independent of anyffrictional eontact between thrust tire 41 and the thrust.,roller.74. In order to accomplishthis ashaft 75 .is journalled in roller-bearings 76 supported on a; pedestal or. cradle 80 located in a centralrecess 81 (Fig. 3) inbase structure 54. This shaft is parallel to and is in vertical alignment with the axis of the kiln.- At one end of theshaft'a spur tooth pinion. 82 is keyed, said pinion being designed for conjugate actionwith; girth gear 16.- At-its opposite end amiter gear. 83 is keyed. A mating miter gear 84 is keyed to perpendicular .shaft85 journalled in. roller bearings' 8,6 and 87 and supported on base structure 54.

After mounting the girth gear 16 and the 'tires23'on the cylindrical weldmentthe adaptors '25-26 are secured tothe endsof theweldment and the thrust tire is positionedon adaptor 25 located in the downhill side of this tire section; 3 M v The essential. details of theedriving means are shown inFig. 9' whichisa section taken through axis b ofFig. 8. The assemblyincludes a high tensile heat-treated shaft 43 which is received in press-fit relation within a cast steel cylinder 44 forming the inner shell of a weldment 45 similar to weldment 10. This inner cylinder is mounted in spaced relation. to an outer cylinder ,46 by means of' fl at welded rings 47. The 'ends of the shaft I gear and bushing The lowerracerwpf the bean are shouldered at 43 and ground to receive theinner race ring of-a bearing structure having rollers 51 and an outer race 52 supportedand secured in arecess 53' in a base frame structure or weldment54 shown in Fig. 3.

A motor (not shown) is preferably located outside of this latter housing and drives the gears shown schematically in Fig. 8.

A gear 114 on motor shaft 115 drives a larger gear 116 on shaft 117. This shaft carries a gear 118 which drives an internal gear 119 keyed to shaft 120. Another gear 1'21 fast on shaft 120 drives large gear 102 on shaft 103. The specific structure of the gear train may, of course,- vary and the arrangement shown is suggested only.

The first tire section is enclosed within a housing unit 124125 (Fig. 1) having cylindrical extensions 126127 for adaptor 25 and closed by a close fitting ring 128 which is held in place by bolts 129 and which engages a sealing gasket 130 (Fig. Fig. 1 also shows the outer end of adaptor 25 welded at 136 to an intermediate shell 137. This end of the kiln is lower than the upper end as indicated by the ground line G. A similar arrangement is provided for adaptor 26 and a cylindrical shell 132 is welded thereto at 133 (Fig. 2).

Fig. 4 shows a broken side elevation of the kiln shell with tire section 9, "which'has been described in detail, and non-driving tire section 135. This view, which omits the rolling elementssupporting tire section 9, shows the kiln on a horizontal axis but in most instances the kiln will be inclined at a slight angle from the horizontal with tire section 9 higher than tire section 135. This view also shows an important modification wherein the adaptor 25 on the downhill side of the tire section 9 is longer than that shown in Fig. 1 and constitutes the in termediate kiln section 131. The only change required in this arrangement is to provide a tire retainer 150 as a back-up for the thrust tire 41. In other words, this retainer would have substantially the same shape as the member 30 in Fig. 7 except that the cylindrical section therein indicated at 25 is omitted.

Tire section 135 includes girth gear 138 and tires 139 which may be mounted on a weldment (not shown) similar to weldment 10 and is provided with adaptors 140 and 141. Adaptor 140 is welded at 142 to shell 137 and adaptor 141 is welded at 143 to a third cylindrical shell 144. If desired the adaptors 140 and 141 may be omitted and the weldment for tire section 135 may be welded directly to shells 137 and 144.

The rolling elements which support tire section 135 on each side thereof include a pinion 147 and two trunnion rollers 148 keyed on a shaft 149. This entire assembly may be substantially similar to that earlier described in reference to tire section 9, and shown in Figs. 5, 6, 7 and 9. The ratio of pinion and girth gear is identical to the ratio of tire and trunnion rollers and rotation of the girth gear 135 imparts rotation to pinions 147 and to trunnion rollers 148 and tires 139, resulting in positive synchronous movement of all these parts.

While there have been described herein what are at present considered preferred embodiments of the invention, it will be obvious to those skilled in the art that many modifications and changes may be made therein Without departing from the essence of the invention. It is therefore to be understood that the exemplary embodiments are illustrative and not restrictive of the invention, the scope of which is defined in the appended claims, and that all modifications that come within the meaning and range of equivalency of the claims are intended to be included therein.
