The design of flights in rotary dryers - ScienceDirect

Nov 26, 2001 · In direct heat rotary dryers, a hot gas flowing through the dryer provides the heat required for the vaporization of the water. To promote gas–solid contact, most direct heat dryers have flights, placed parallel along the length of the shell, which lift solids and make them rain across the section of the dryer Fig. 1).

The design of flights in rotary dryers - ScienceDirect

Rotary dryers for particulate solids commonly use flights along the length of the shell to lift solids and make them rain across the dryer section. These flights are critical to dryer performance. Previous models for the prediction of the solids holdup in rotary drums have assumed that the angle of the solids level in a flight is independent of ...

THE DESIGN OF FLIGHTS IN CASCADING ROTARY DRYERS: Drying ...

Jun 16, 2010 · In designing cascading rotary dryers, it is important to size the flights correctly in order to ensure that they can adequately accommodate the contents of the drum. A set of equations has been derived to calculate the solids holdup on angular and extended-circular flights in such dryers.

Flights (rotary dryer) - Wikipedia

Flights, also commonly referred to as "lifters," are used in rotary dryers and rotary coolers to shower material through the process gas stream. Affixed to the interior of the rotary drum, these fin-like structures scoop up material from the bed and shower it through the gas stream as the drum rotates.
