The rotary dryer also known as tumbling dryer is an equipment employed to minimize the moisture content of feed materials by bringing it in direct contact with a heated gas. It consists of an inclined long drum or cylindrical shell often fitted with internal flights or lifters; rotated slowly upon bearings through which the material to be dried ...

It can be used on either a co-current or counter-current design. When a combustion chamber is not used, the burner is simply mounted directly onto the end of the dryer, so that the flame is present in the drum itself, allowing direct contact between the flame and the material being processed.

A simplied diagram of a direct-heat rotary dryer is presented in Figure 7.1. The direction of gas flow through the cylinder relative to the solids is dictated mainly by the properties of the ...

Counter-current Flow Dryer Fig 2.2.1 2.3 Mixed flow dryer Dryers of this type (Fig. 2.3.1) combine both co-current and counter current flow. In a mixed flow dryer, the air enters at the top and the atomizer is located at the bottom. Like the counter-current design, a mixed flow dryer exposes the driest

Jul 01, 2016· Similar to the model developed by Thorpe (1972), the co-current rotary dryer is axially divided into n fixed control volumes of length L/n, where L is the total length of the dryer. A schematic of a control volume is shown in Fig. 1.In order to conduct steady state heat and mass balances on each section of the co-current dryer, the following assumptions were made:

Dec 01, 2016· In general industries, there are mainly two kinds of rotary dryer, which are named by the direction of gas flow. One is the same as particles flow, namely, co-current rotary dryer, the other opposite to the particles flow, namely, counter-current rotary dryer. Experiments performed in this study are all taken place in the co-current rotary dryers.

(kg/s), ∗ is the holdup of the dryer and 𝜌 is the density of the solid (kg/m3). The trommel length can be calculated easily as: =4·𝑉 𝐷2 (10) On the other hand, volumetric heat transfer coefficient can be obtained considering the co-current rotary dryer as a heat exchanger from the Eq. (11) as follows: = 𝜕

Fig. 5 – Scheme of high-revolution rotary dryer Heat and constructional-technical parameters were verified on the pilot model of high-revolution rotary dryer. In Fig. 6 is shown a view of the pilot model of high-revolution rotary dryer. An implementation of the pilot dryer was carried out according to the developed project.

The rotary dryer is a piece of equipment which is of relatively common use in the chemical process industries, due to its simplicity and versatility in handling different types of solids. The ability to estimate its operating characteristics is of major importance either in the production planning of an existing plant or in the design of a new one.

The Co-current type Rotary Dryer is ideal for the materials that has tendency to stick and has high moisture content. Here Air and feed are introduced from the same direction and material comes in contact of hot air at its highest temperature,which instantly evaporates surface moisture.
