SD 1.5 Parallel Flow Dryer

BG Europa (UK) Ltd have provided specialist drying plants for many industries, including dryers for aggregates, sand, slag, mineral, glass and recovered aluminium.

The SD Series Parallel Flow Dryer Drums including the SD 1.5 are usually mated to SF Series Pulse Jet Fabric Filters to provide efficient low temperature drying at just above dew point. These drums are used extensively within the slag and sand drying industries and therefore flight design and drum construction is targeted to provide long operational life given the highly abrasive nature of these materials.

BG EUROPA rotary dryer drums benefit from many years of design and experience of a diverse range of drying applications. Each dryer unit is designed to suit individual applications and requirements. Where additional versatility is required elements can be incorporated to allow dryer inclination and drum speed to be easily adjusted to suit the differing drying characteristics of a range of materials.

The SD1.5 drying drum ensures long life expectancy and low operational costs by offering the following:

  • Heavy duty chassis in stationary or relocatable designs.
  • Drum shell manufactured from 12.0mm thick Boiler Plate being resistant to flaking under cyclical temperature conditions.
  • High efficiency flight pattern including insulation flights in combustion zone to maximize radiant heat capture. Adjustable drum flights also enable material veil to be modified to suit extraction and burner characteristics.
  • Two trunnion rings forged from a solid billet of EN8 steel and machined to tolerance to provide a trunnion path free from joints.
  • Pivoting trunnion roller support stools enable tracking by skewing the trunnion roller tangentially to the trunnion ring. This design ensures that the trunnion rollers have full face contact with the trunnion ring at all times, thus ensuring even distribution of forces over the roller and trunnion ring for minimum wear. This design is particularly beneficial when using nylon rollers which can be damaged by point loading.
  • Heavy duty trunnion roller assemblies incorporate internal taper roller bearings to lock all thrust forces into the roller assembly. This design significantly reduces forces on the trunnion shaft and negates the need for keyways which are traditionally a source of weakness.
  • Trunnion rollers manufactured from EN8 steel with flame hardened wearing faces for maximum life.
