The rotary dryer is designed to provide a continuous and efficient method for drying materials. Rotary dryers were developed in the early 1900s to address the time-consuming and inefficient process of drying materials using traditional methods, such as hanging or placing to air dry.
Rotary dryers were originally designed to dry agricultural and food products, such as grains, fruits and vegetables. However, the design has been adapted for a wide range of industrial applications over time, including drying minerals, chemicals and other materials. Nowadays, rotary dryers are widely used in mining, agriculture, food processing and chemical processing industries.
