Able to effectively handle a broad range of material, including powder and bulk solids and liquid sludges, the Rotary Dryer can be specified according to starting and final moisture content, product temperature, drying air temperature, air velocity and retention time of the material – in order to meet and exceed your specific application requirements.
In many industrial processes, rotary dryers are relied upon for high capacity, consistent drying of bulk solids — and for good reason. They offer innumerable benefits, both to the process and the product.
One of the most prominent components of a rotary dryer is a large, rotating cylinder called the drum shell. Drying air or process gas flows through the drum in co-current or counter-current modes. In co-current mode, material travels in the same direction as the process gas. In counter-current mode, material travels in the opposite direction of the process gas. Regardless of the direction of travel, the drying air comes in direct contact with the material being dried.
Rotary dryers are used both for post-drying and pre-conditioning. Post-drying is a method of reducing the moisture content of a final product. Pre-conditioning is a method of drying a material prior to subsequent processing.
A rotary dryer has the distinguished roll of removing that unwanted water to turn the organic material into a useable, more desired product.
Rotary dryers have long converted co-products into profits for process industries.
