Suction Drum Dryer

Suction Drum Dryers are specifically designed to dry any material that can be transferred from drum surface to drum surface, and held on the surface of the drum as the heated air passes through the material.

How It Works

The Inline Drum Dryer consists of two or more perforated drums, horizontally mounted. Air circulation is provided by fans mounted on one side of the drum with air passing through the bottom surface of the first drum and the top surface of the second drum. Depending upon the drying capacity required, any number of 2 drum compartments can be linked together to form a complete machine.

The Staggered Drum Dryer operates on the same principle, except the drums alternate above and below the adjacent drum. This staggered design is not self-threading.

Fast, Uniform Drying

Wolverine Proctor Drum Dryers are designed to provide fast uniform drying. Being suction drum dryers, the fan draws air from the interior of the drum producing a suction on the surface of the area in contact with the material. This suction holds the material to the surface of the drum permitting air to pass through the material being dried. A portion of the drum at the transfer has no suction and permits the material to transfer to the next drum without interference.
