Rotary Drum Dryer

What Factors will Affect the Price of a Rotary Dryer

The price of rotary dryers is probably one of the most concerned problems of customers. Actually, there are many factors can affect the price of a rotary drum dryer, such as capacity, material, design and so on. There is no doubt that different configurations have different prices. The following is a detailed introduction for the different configurations.

  • Materials

The shell of rotary drying machine can be made of a variety of materials.

  • It includes carbon steel, stainless steel, specialty alloys, explosion welding, hadfield steel, and a variety of other alloys.

  • The shell can also be customized in different ways depending on material and workmanship needs.

  • In general, carbon steel of international standard is used. The reason why stainless steel is not used is that it is too expensive.

Precise Design

Some parts of the dryer need to be carefully designed to make the dryer not only improve the work efficiency and save energy.

The burner is the engine behind the dryer that determines the watt output. Burners can be designed for use with a variety of fuel sources, including natural gas, coal, oil, etc. Choosing the right burner size is crucial to drying materials correctly and efficiently.

Where the combustion chamber and discharge breech meet the drum, seals are needed to connect the fixed parts to the rotating drum. The aim is to prevent air and material from leaving the drum prematurely. Again, many different sealing options exist depending on the needs of the material to be handled.

  • Capacity & Price of Rotary Dryer

We have nine types of rotary dryers with different outputs. And we will introduce them to you according to the output from small to large. And we can design different models, size and length accorrding to customer’s requirements. In general, the same model of different lengths of the dryer price is not the same, while the longer the price will be slightly higher.

First of all, the smallest dryer has an output of one to two tons per hour. The motor power is 5.5 kilowatts. the reducer model is ZQ250, the speed is six revolutions per minute, the price is 3,000 to 4,000 dollars.

For dryers with an output of 2 to 4 tons per hour, the motor power is 7.5 kilowatts, the reducer model is ZQ350, and the speed is six revolutions per minute. The price is 5,500 to 6,500 US dollars.

For dryers with an output of 3 to 5 tons per hour,the power of the motor is 7.5 kilowatts, the model of the reducer is ZQ350, and the speed is six revolutions per minute. The price is 7,000 to 8,000 US dollars.

For dryers with an output of 4 to 6 tons per hour, with a motor power of 11 kilowatts and the reducer model is ZQ400 at six revolutions per minute, and the quotation is 9,500 to 11,000 US dollars.

For dryers with an output of 6 to 8 tons per hour, the power of the motor is 15 kilowatts, the model of the reducer is ZQ400, and the speed is per minute for six revolutions, the quotation is 12,000 to 14,000 U.S. dollars.

For dryers with an output of 7 to 12 tons per hour, the motor power is 22 kilowatts. And the reducer model is ZQ500, and the speed is six revolutions per minute. Thus, the quotation is 15,000 to 20,000 U.S. dollars.

For dryers with an output of 8 to 15 tons per hour, the motor power is 37 kilowatts. Besides, the reducer model is ZQ500, and the speed is 5.8 revolutions per minute. Hence, the quotation is 20,000 to 25,000 U.S. dollars.

For dryers with an output is 8 to 16 tons per hour,the motor power is 37 kilowatts. Moreover, the reducer model is ZQ500, and the speed is 5.5 revolutions per minute. The price is 25,000 to 30,000 US dollars.

For dryers with an output is 14 to 18 tons per hour, the power of the motor is 45 kilowatts. Besides, the model of the reducer is ZQ650, and the speed is 5.2 revolutions per minute. The quotation is 35,000 to 50,000 US dollars.


We have a customer in the UK who is looking for a chicken manure dryer to dry about 4,000 tonnes of wet chicken manure per year. The fertilizer has a 70% water content, it needs to dried to 15% water content, and then make the dried fertilizer into pellets.

This is because the moisture content of chicken manure is too high. Firstly I will equip the customer with a dehydrator, and then dehydrate the chicken manure containing 70% moisture into about 50% moisture.

Secondly, use the dryer to dry the chicken manure containing about 50% moisture to contain about 15 % chicken manure. As the customer’s requirement is the annual output of 4000 tons, the output of dryer per hour is about 1.4 tons if it is calculated by working 280 days a year and 10 hours a day. Therefore, customers should choose the smallest size dryer. That is enough. As mentioned above, the quotation of the smallest dryers is $3,000 to $4,000.

Finally, the customer also needs to dry the chicken manure for granulation. Therefore, the customer also needs a flat die granulator. You might wonder that why is it a flat die granulator? Because when using the flat die granulator, the moisture of raw materials should be between 10% and 15%, and the dried chicken manure just meets this granulation condition.

Production Line

Taking chicken manure organic fertilizer production line as an example. Chicken manure organic fertilizer production line is based on chicken manure as raw material. Through a full set of fertilizer production system processing, configuration scheme can be based on the production demand of customers to select.

The production process of chicken manure organic fertilizer is closely related to the equipment configuration of organic fertilizer production line. The complete equipment of general organic fertilizer production line mainly includes fermentation system, drying system, deodorization and dust removal system, crushing system, batching system, mixing system, granulation system, screening system and finished product packaging system.

Chicken manure organic fertilizer production process is as follows. Organic fertilizer raw materials such as animal manure after fermentation into the semi-wet material grinder for grinding. And then you may add nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and other elements to make the mineral elements to meet the required standards. After stirring with a blender, you can make them enter the granulator to make pellets, and then dry with a dryer. Through the screening machine screening, qualified products directly with packaging machine packaging, unqualified products returned to the granulator for granulation.
