FEECO Rotary Dryers


Best in Class Rotary Dryers

We’ve 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, FEECO’s design team can design a rotary drum dryer for your application.

Our rotary dryers feature:

  • Specially designed lifting flights to maximize heat transfer between the material and hot gas stream
  • Heavy duty design and construction for many years of service
  • Process and Mechanical Warranties

We can offer cost competitive designs for pilot scale units that process as little as one ton per hour to heavy duty units in excess of 17 foot in diameter that process hundreds of tons per hour.
