Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / pyrolitic waste treatment process
English term or phrase: retort
more about term: Waste materials are fed through airlocks to the horizontal **retort chamber**, which houses a proprietary rotating auger. XXX has designed a three-arch, triangular chamber, which uses the upper portion to transport the generated gases to the thermal oxidizer, while the two bottom arches contain a suspended twin-rotary screw (auger) with paddle flights that convey the waste through the **retort** as pyrolysis occurs. Another set of airlocks is positioned at the "solids discharge" end of the retort chamber to prevent the introduction of oxygen.

Thanks for your help.
