A simulation of radiant heat transfer to a single-layer flow of vermiculite moving along the vibrating hearth plate was performed, and the temperatures and their distribution from the central to peripheral (near-wall) working chambers of the firing modules were determined. An analytical model of thermal energy absorption by vermiculite is provided, which represents the basis for further study of the energy relations in the furnace- medium system during the vermiculite firing process.
