rotary kilns vs. rotary dryers: whats the difference?

rotary kilns vs. rotary dryers: whats the difference?

When it comes to thermal processing, how do you know if you need a rotary kiln, or a rotary dryer? Though these two products share similar thermal processing principles, they are used in very different applications. While rotary kilns can dry a product, their main concern is not in drying, but simply heating.

Rotary dryers are almost always used for drawing moisture out of a material. Typically, they operate at temperatures between 800 1400F. Rotary kilns, however, are concerned with causing a chemical reaction. Therefore, they need to operate at much higher temperatures, between 1000 3000.

Rotary kilns are designed to withstand much higher temperatures than a rotary dryer. Typically, if you are dealing with a direct fired rotary kiln, it is refractory lined with a brick or castable lining. This lining protects the steel shell. Rotary dryers are typically not lined, and their steel is not able to withstand such high temperatures. If you are dealing with an indirect rotary kiln, the kiln is not normally lined, so the shell of the drum has to be made out of a temperature resistant alloy instead of steel.

Whether you need a rotary kiln or a rotary dryer is all dependent on what you are trying to do with your material. Are you simply looking to dry your material via thermal processing, or are you trying to cause a thermally-driven chemical reaction? The difference between a rotary dryer and a rotary kiln is simple: a rotary dryer will dry your material, and a rotary kiln will heat it up to cause a chemical reaction.

Weve built a reputation on building the best rotary dryers in the industry. All of our dryers are custom designed to suit the unique processing needs of your material. Whether you require low or high inlet temperatures, short or long residence times, counter current or co-current flow, FEECOs design team can design a rotary drum dryer for your application.

Rotary dryers are a highly efficient industrial drying option for bulk solids. They are often chosen for their robust processing capabilities and their ability to produce uniform results despite variance in feedstock.

The drum is positioned at a slight horizontal slope to allow gravity to assist in moving material through the drum. As the drum rotates, lifting flights pick up the material and drop it through the air stream in order to maximize heat transfer efficiency. When working with agglomerates, the tumbling action imparted by the dryer offers the added benefit of further rounding and polishing the granules.

All FEECO equipment and process systems can be outfitted with the latest in automation controls from Rockwell Automation. The unique combination of proprietary Rockwell Automation controls and software, combined with our extensive experience in process design and enhancements with hundreds of materials provides an unparalleled experience for customers seeking innovative process solutions and equipment.

Rotary dryers are known as the workhorse of industrial dryers. They are able to process a wide variety of materials, and can lend a hand in nearly any industry requiring industrial drying solutions. Some of the most common industries and materials in which rotary dryers are employed include:

Unlike direct dryers, indirect dryers do not rely on direct contact between the material and process gas to dry the material. Instead, the rotating drum is enclosed in a furnace, which is externally heated. Contact with the heated drum shell is what dries the material.
