In drying of wet solids the following main factors which essentially are used in process design calculation of dryers should be defined in accordance with mass and heat transfer principles process conditions and drying behavior drying characteristics constantrate period fallingrate period.
In general there are limited applications for these dryers for the drying of liquids or liquid suspensions the evaporator of choice is usually either a drum dryer or a spray dryer a typical film drum dryer with a 4 ft 12 m by 10 ft 3 m long drum will evaporate about 600 lbh 270 kgh of water.
Indirect rotary dryers differ from convectivedirect dryers in that heat is transferred to the wet product by conduction and radiation through the cylinder wall or through a series of tubes located circumferentially to the cylinder indirect rotary dryers use as heating medium hot gases coming from a combustion chamber.
re heat balance in rotary dryer donkeypuncher chemical 10 to get you started it depends on the application but typically a dryer is sized based on the specific unit evaporation rate kg of h2o evap m3 h all youd have to do is find out what the industry standard was for your proposed application.

the sizing and design of a rotary dryer is a complex process involving a number of factors and considerations this presentation looks at the importance of custom rotary drum dryer design over a onesizefitsall solution and the many material characteristics and environmental factors that should be considered during the design process.
Radiation and dielectric heating a modern drying technique in which internal heat is generated by radio or microwave frequencies in most dryers heat is transferred by more than one method but each industrial dryer has one predominant heat transfer method in rotary dryers this is convection the necessary heat usually being provided by direct.
Rotary dryer construction while feeco rotary dryers are custom designed around the material to be processed the basis of a rotary dryer is somewhat standard with customizations coming in terms of sizing materials mechanical components and addons among other items the diagram on the next page shows some of the basic.
Rotary dryer roaster a continuous multizone convection system that provides optimal dryingroasting in a gentle and sanitary manner firstin firstout production and even heating with a smart stepspiral and flighted drum design achieves uniform drying and roasting.
Rotary dryers work by tumbling material in a rotating drum in the presence of a drying air they can also be indirectly heated to avoid direct contact between the material and processing medium the drum is positioned at a slight horizontal slope to allow gravity to assist in moving material through the drum.
The rotary drier is made up of the rotary shell lifting plate driving device supporting device and sealing ring the rotary drum dryer design calculations have the advantage of reasonable design best fabric high capacity lower in energy consumption and easy to control.
