The rotary drum dryer is primarily designed for drying raw materials, semi-finished and finished products. It can also be used for drying recyclables and household solid waste, particularly moist cardboard containers. Modern drum dryers for bulk goods are versatile in their operation and suitable for handling a wide range of substances. In practice, sawdust and pellets are most commonly dried.

Structurally, the sawdust rotary dryer consists of a stator and a rotor. The static part is the housing, and no stands or additional structures are required to install the equipment.

A gear motor connected to a chain drive rotates the drum cylinder inside the frame. Bearings minimise friction. Screw conveyors are used for loading and unloading operations.

  • The dryer is suitable for drying groceries.
  • The painted parts are coated with wear-resistant enamel.
  • The drum is additionally insulated over its entire surface.

The hygienically safe drum dryer for groceries is free of components posing a risk to human and animal health. The mobile hopper is made of customised structural or stainless steel. The default colour can be changed to any other colour as required by the customer.

The prefabricated rotary dryer equipment is easy to install in production and can be upgraded on site if required. For repair and maintenance, rotary drum dryers are only temporarily shut down with no need for disassembly.
