FEECO’s rotary dryers are custom designed for your specific processing needs. 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 dryer system for your application.

Is a Rotary Dryer right for you?

Many of our customers are not sure if a rotary dryer is the correct piece of equipment for their needs. FEECO offers a number of complimentary services up front to help you answer some of these questions:
  1. Process Design Program – Our computerized process design program can determine the best rotary dryer for your application.
  2. Automated Drawing Program – Based on the above data, we can create a general arrangement drawing of your rotary dryer in Auto CAD in a short time frame. This can be very useful at the beginning stages for overall plant design, or determining if the unit will fit into an existing space.
  3. Computer Costing Program – We can generate an approximate cost of your system in a short time frame to see if it will fit your budget.
