Rotary Dryers

Continuous handling of powders and granules – Mitchell Rotary Dryers provide a means of continuously handling powders and granules. Rotary Dryers are divided into two main types dependent on whether direct or indirect heating is employed.


Dryers for heat sensitive material

Mitchell vacuum dryers are used where materials to be dried are heat sensitive or liable to oxidation. Solvents can readily be recovered by means of a simple condenser system.  These dryers can be supplied complete with heating system, vacuum pump, solvent condensor and service piping.


Rotary Calciners

Mitchell Rotary Calciners, or kilns, are very similar in design to rotary dryers, except that much higher temperatures are involved. Again these may be directly heated or indirectly, depending upon the specific application.
