Hongxing mining machinery offers rotary dryers. They consist of a relatively long cylindrical shell, which ranges from 0. 6 to 5 m in diameter and from 5 to 30 m long, supported by two riding rings running on a set of rollers (rotation speed up to 25 rpm). They are slightly inclined from the horizontal, the slope enables material to move from the feed to the discharge end under gravity. They are suitable for a wide range of materials with varying size and composition. The co-current direct-heat rotary dryer is the most common, wet material is in contact with the hot gas stream as its highest temperature, which causes rapid evaporation of surface moisture. As it progresses through the dryer, heat energy is lost to the material it is drying and it leaves the dryer at a comparatively low temperature. In co-current dryers, cone crushers, the initial heat transfer is high, which causes a considerable drop in temperature thus preventing overheating of the material and the dryer itself. The final dried product is discharged with the gas stream at its lowest temperature, which ensures the moisture content can be readily controlled. Counter current dryers are more suitable for material that must be dried to very low moisture contents or where the last traces of moisture are difficult to remove.

As all as we know, the rotary dryer is a type of industrial dryer employed to reduce or minimize the liquid moisture content of the material it is handling by bringing it into direct contact with a heated gas. The dryer is made up of a large, rotating cylindrical tube, usually supported by concrete columns or steel beams. When the material gets high enough to roll back off the fins, it falls back down to the bottom of the dryer, passing through the hot gas stream as it falls. This gas stream can either be moving toward the discharge end from the feed end (known as co-current flow), or toward the feed end from the discharge end (known as counter-current flow). The gas stream can be...
