The Band Dryers are perhaps the most popular dryers which is why they have been in use in many industries ranging from food, chemicals to pharmaceuticals, etc. for several years.

The band dryers find wide application in drying food, chemical and mineral products, where drying is required on a continuous basis. Several configurations are available to suit the individual application. Drying is effected by circulation of hot air through a bed of material as it is carried through the dryer on a conveyor band.

The drying enclosure is divided into a number of drying sections each including an air heater and circulating fan together with fresh air inlet and exhaust facilities.

The band dryers are specifically designed to suit the application and take into account the industry's requirements for hygiene, accessibility and efficiency. All our dryers are of modular design to optimise drying efficiency, give precise temperature control in each zone, reduce installation time and to facilitate future extensions.

The range of band dryers include: single-pass, single-pass-multi-stage and multi-pass band dryers. Continuous conveyorised band coolers, air jet conveyor band dryers and continuous tempering are also available. Heating systems can be either steam, gas, oil (indirect) or electric.
