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 radiated heat from the burner flame or the products of combustion, then a direct-fired unit will provide the maximum efficiency 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 reorienting 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.
