Rotary Dryer Equipment

Rotary Dryer

General Kinematics Rotary Dryer is custom engineered to maximize the unique drying and processing needs of your material. GK Rotary Dryers use rotary motion to lift and cascade your material through the hot gas stream, evaporating moisture evenly. Dryers can be designed using various drying technologies, including direct drying in counter-current or co-current flow, or indirect drying, utilizing external heat applied to the exterior of the drum shell.

Rotary dryers are able to process a wide variety of materials, including:

  • Aggregate
  • Agricultural products
  • Biomass materials
  • Fertilizer
  • Gypsum
  • Limestone
  • Municipal waste
  • Sand
  • Wood and organic fibers

GK rotary dryer designs use extra heavy-duty components for extended up time and reduced maintenance. Material contact surfaces are manufactured from wear resistant materials, so drums will last a long time between servicing. Rotary trunnions and rings are forged for superior strength and durability, and are easy to replace or resurface.

The engineers at GK will work with you to design a complete drying system that works. Couple your rotary dryer with GK’s proven vibratory material handling equipment to pre-process, feed, and deliver your dried product to the next step in your manufacturing process.
