Direct-Fired Dryers


A rotary direct fired dryer built by Louisville Dryer Company provides a cost-effective and proven method to dry a variety of products.

If your product is not affected by heat from the burner flame or the products of combustion, then a direct fired unit will provide an efficient drying solution through the full utilization of all three heat transfer methods: radiant, convection, and conduction.


Here is a great example of a Direct Fired Dryer project: Louisville Dryer rebuilt a previously used dryer for a large recycling company. As part of the reconditioning the dryer was outfitted with a completely new flighting system along with new housings and reorientating the burner from counter-current to co-current.

This proved to be a very successful project as production was increased while at the same time decreasing fuel usage.
