Material is fed onto the top tray. After one revolution the material is wiped onto the next lower tray where it is mixed, leveled, and then after one revolution, is wiped to the next tray where the operation is repeated. The trays are contained in an enclosure in which heated air or gas is circulated by internal fans.Even, thorough, and rapid dryingUniform inside temperature or zoned temperature regions give the closest product temperature control of any dryer possible. This can result in the lowest residual moisture of any dryer.Product QualityGentle handling produces little dust or fines resulting in little product degradation, even with fragile materials such as crystals and pellets. The dryer provides a free-flowing product when other dryers produce material that cakes or sets-up in containers, silos, or railcars.

The Komline-Wyssmont Turbo-Dryer® Delivers very uniformly dried Product because material is Intermittently redistributed with Plug-flow operation.A large 20 ft. (6m) diameter field-erected Turbo-Dryer® for drying and cooling various material. Dryer sizes range up to 35 ft. dia. X 60 ft. high (10.6×18.2m) with evaporative capacity of 25,000 lbs. water/hr (11.3 Metric Tons). Unique construction avoids massive foundations.

The Komline-Wyssmont Turbo-Dryer® delivers veryuniformly dried Product because material is intermittently redistributed with Plug-flow operation.Komline-Wyssmont is predominant in the field of drying with solvent recovery. Compared with the batch solvent recovery dryers, which they often replace, these systems are safe, economical and continuous, and require almost no operator attention. Their design is built around the special features of the Turbo-Dryer® , which is uniquely able to operate at atmospheric pressure with inert gas as the drying medium in a closed system.These systems have a reputation for safety and reliability. Many customers with broad experience in drying equipment will consider only Komline-Wyssmont systems when drying with solvent recovery.The Turbo-Dryer® consists of a stack of slowly rotating circular trays.
