The horizontal cylindrical dryer design includes either a ribbon or paddle agitator, depending on the materials and the range of volumes to be dried. The agitator continuously moves the materials within the vessel, past the jacketed trough walls until the desired moisture content is achieved. working capacity, and can be supplied with a wide range of features to suit each clients special needs.
Dryers are another applied mechanisms used in the industry. The most common use of dryers is in the food and mineral industry. The mechanism of the dryers mainly acts by passing hot air through the materials leads to a reduction in the moisture content. In this type of dryer, the hot air is sent to the inside of the material which is placed inside a cylindrical container and is embedded in the outer wall of the enclosure. This hot air, passing through moisture-containing materials, evaporates the water inside them, and this vapor emits through the holes embedded in the body of the outer wall of the enclosure.
