Just got back from another trip to work on a rotary dryer in Texarkana and thought I would share a few photos of the job and what we had to bring back home with us.

We are running at 600F. and taking 100 ton/hr from 12% moister down to .02%. What appears to be dust is steam off the product, it's discharging the dryer at 375F.


Here is what we brought back home with us !!

Man that dryer sure would do a lot of clothes! :bigrofl:

Looks like you scored on the lottery Brian with all the stuff you brought back. The rear suspension looks like it was having a tough time of it. Glad you had a good trip.

That is an intersting project! May I ask what they are running through the Dryer?

Nice score on the load brought home!! Hope you had no tire trouble, I noticed they were showing the load pretty heavy.

Drying Calcium mostly powder, which holds a lot more water then 1" stone does.

The truck was squatting a little bit, but still had springs left. :D

yep, I can see them in the one picture, sticking up thru the bed. Geez, if you had springs left, you must've had some helpers installed at some point.

Really nice score Brian, glad you are giving them a good home. (Trying to sound like your wife) and just where do you plan on putting those???

Brian, It looks like you captured an entire GT collection in one trip! That dryer must take a serious amount of fuel to generate that much heat.

JD., That is a 12 Million BTU burner at high fire. They are feeding it with a 2" X 80' long gas line at 20PSI and it needs every bit to keep up.
