Step 2- Choose Your Material Of Construction

Vulcan's direct rotary dryers are constructed from a variety of materials depending on your application. Each standard dryer has four options for you to choose from, but we can construct your dryer from any material that you need.

  • 1/4" Carbon Steel for Light Industrial
  • 1/2" Carbon Steel for Heavy Industrial
  • 3/8" 304 Stainless Steel
  • 1/4" 316 Food Grade Stainless Steel

Step 3- Choose Your Options

Your direct rotary dryer can be customized with a number of flight options from standard to aggressive (or a combination). Knock out boxes can be added for your controls, insulation and wraps to better control temperature and an external finish paint to keep your dryer looking new for years.

  • Flights
    • Standard
    • Agressive
    • Combination
  • Over sized Knock Out Box on discharge bridging (This helps reduce particulate carry over into duct work)
  • VFD Drum Drive
  • Insulated shell with aluminium skin
  • Internal Hard Refractory (Not for drying applications)
  • Chain Curtain
  • External Finish Paint
