Dryer shell and internals

Shell is fabricated from ASTM
A-36 carbon steel. Riding ring
sections are made of heavier plate
than the balance of the shell
Internal lifters shower the
material for maximum drying and
heat transfer. The internals
(starting from the feed end)
consist of; feed advancing spirals
to minimize backspilling, straight
lifters bolted to angle brackets
which are welded to the shell,
and a section of bare shell at the
discharge end to minimize dust
Overlapping spring plate seals on
both end of the dryer minimize
air infiltration.
Support rollers are made of
high-grade forged steel and are
integral with the shafts.
Grease lubricated spherical roller
support bearings are designed for
80,000 hour of L10 life.
Full thrust is included. The
downhill thrust roller is designed
to take the full downhill thrust.
