More Power: The Benefits of Heyl Patterson’s Rotary Dryers and Coolers

Fly ash bricks

A few materials have become popular in industrial processes, like fly ash. Long regarded as coal combustion waste, it has become an essential resource in several industries.

The global fly ash market, valued at nearly $12.67 billion in 2022, is projected to reach nearly $19.6 billion by 2030.

An eco-friendly replacement for cement, fly ash is both cost-effective and durable. Plus, it is used in agricultural soil enhancement, wastewater processing, and sourcing rare elements.

Heyl Patterson’s rotary dryers and coolers come into play to harness their full potential. These dryers can efficiently process several materials like fly ash, preparing them for different applications. Let’s explore how Heyl Patterson’s rotary dryers efficiently and economically process bulk solids, benefiting industries and the environment.

Rotary Dryers and Coolers: The Most Versatile Equipment

Regarding the workhorses of the powder and bulk solids processing industry, Heyl Patterson’s rotary dryers and coolers can handle several different materials, including wet and dry fly ash.

Customized to meet your needs, the dryers can work with specific moisture content, product temperature, heating air temperature, and material retention time. We are sure you will not find a rotary dryer with such benefits and customization options anywhere else.

Rotary Dryers Key Benefits: 

  • Low energy use and highly efficient design for faster processing with no product damage
  • Controlled retention time for precise temperature and moisture content
  • Emissions control and heat recovery for improved efficiency
  • High-capacity design ideal for complex materials
  • Adjustable speed and inclination with little flow resistance
  • Heavy-duty support base for durability and long life
  • Custom materials of construction, including carbon steel, stainless steel, and special alloys

How Rotary Dryers Process Fly Ash

Rotary dryers serve as the heart of the fly ash beneficiation process. They can work with fly ash having different levels of moisture. They are fast at processing huge bulks of fly ash without damaging the product. They produce high-quality fly ash that is an inexpensive replacement for regular cement.

Expert Customization

We provide complete customizations per the client’s needs for specific process atmospheres, different temperature zones, special construction materials, automated control units, etc.

Some of the customizations available for maximum productivity and profitability are: 

Variable Speed and Inclination

Custom rotation speed and inclination provide adjustable product retention times.

Size and Capacity

Dryers with diameters up to 16 ft. and lengths exceeding 100 ft. are available for complex process needs.

Air Flow Systems

Different air flow systems, such as forced-draft, induced-draft, and combination airflow systems, are available.

Spiral and Lifting Flights

Straight, saw, gusseted, or completely customized flights are available. Alternating 45° and 90° tip flights in all rows or alternating rows of flights enhances drying performance.

Cooling Designs

Options for cooling available are counter-current air swept, internal/external water-cooled, or a combination of both.

CPEG Test Lab

Our hi-tech CPEG Lab is another reason you should seriously consider doing business with us. With a vast area of 15,000 sq. ft. and access to the most advanced testing equipment, you can be sure of an efficient, safe, and reliable solution for your bulk solids processing needs.

Here are some more reasons to use the lab: 

  • Cost-Effectiveness: Optimized process design to enhance efficiency and reduce costs.
  • Quality Assurance: Rigorous tests to satisfy industry and application standards.
  • Eco-friendliness: Removal of contaminants from the products for a cleaner environment.
  • Customization: Accurate lab results to design the equipment as per specific requirements.
