I am writing about an equipment which I just know its English name but not much its meaning (word by word), and I am trying to translate it
the word is Traveling grate (e.g by this company) in the page they call it as a process,
Our traveling grate process is the leading technology for producing pellets suitable for blast furnace and direct reduction.
while here they say
After surface ignition on the sintering machine’s travelling grate, air is induced through the ignited layer and the process continues in the vertical direction of the material bed.
Then I don't know its an equipment or a name for a process
There is also an equipment named Pallet Cars
I think I can guess their meaning but I am not sure about them (for example why Pallet, why Car! or why Grate, why Traveling).
Grate has many meaning, I guess grate here means a fireplace which is moving (However it also means a frame of metal bars and the equipment also consists of parallel grate bars)
The technology provide a chain (train or maybe it is called traveling grate) of Pallet Cars to move materials in sintering machine! they are like a pallet moving on rail (maybe because they have four wheel, they named it car), actually pallet has plates which grate bars are on it.
The following is an image of a pallet car consist of 4 plates consisting of parallel grate bars.
