the solver which contains "DyM" in their name, supports dynamic mesh, it seems it is possible to use rigid body motion for your problem

Dear Habibfateh,
Did you develop a solver for simulating Rotary Kiln, I want to model coal combustion in fluidized bed, which is the same with you. In OpenFOAM workshop2015, Kang Y. Huh from Pohang University of Science and Technology (see link, page 44) developed a solver named reatingMPPICFoam, thus I think MPPICFoam/DPMFoam + coalChemistryFoam can do it, however, I encounter many problems, and can you give me some advice?
Best regards!
