Applied Chemical Technology (ACT) designs and fabricates rotary dryers for a wide variety of applications requiring drying of solids like powders, granular materials, and foods. Manufactured since 1981, our dryers have proven to withstand the rigors of use while minimizing maintenance downtime. Whether you are looking for a standalone rotary dryer or require a complete thermal processing system, ACT has the expertise, engineers, designers, and skilled craftsmen to fabricate the rotary drum dryer to meet your processing requirements.

Our craftsmen build drum dryers from carbon steel, stainless steel, and specialty alloys with throughputs from 10 lb/hr to 100 tons/hr or more. For high temperature processes, our rotary kilns can withstand temperatures as high as 1000° F. We build counter-current or co-current direct-fired rotary dryers as well as indirect-fired rotary dryers based on your material properties and processing demands.
