Industries Canada "The Process
Equipment People" designs, engineers and manufactures Rotary Dryers and Systems
for various industrial processes and applications.
PATTERSON Rotary Dryers can be designed for Direct heat or
Indirect Heat processes and with co-current flow of product (same direction as heat flow)
or counterflow of product (in opposite direction to heat flow).
Direct Heat Dryers
PATTERSON Direct Heat Dryers pass hot gasses or heated air through the Dryer in the
same Chamber that the material to be dried is passing.
Indirect Heat Dryers
PATTERSON Indirect Heat Dryers use hot gasses or heated air. The gases or air is
applied to the exterior of the Dryer shell. The processing material travels through the
interior of the rotating shell without contact with the hot air or gasses.
PATTERSON Rotary Dryers can be
supplied as systems by augmenting the supply of the Rotary Dryer with a Forced Flow Fan,
Heating System, Induced Flow Fan and Scrubbing System, all mounted on a common base frame.
In designing the equipment to individual specifications, PATTERSON can supply units
from Pilot-size to full Production size. The largest unit made to date is 10'0" (3.05
m) diameter x 75'0" (22.9 m) long). Rotary Dryer bodies can be fabricated from a full
range of materials including Carbon Steel; Stainless Steel, Hastelloy and most
PATTERSON has many years of experience in the design, engineering and construction of
