Wyssmont Turbo-Dryer® for industrial scale moisture removal
Control bottom-line production costs with a viable alternative to traditional material batch drying.

We offer a solution that is designed to gently turn and level the material, enabling it to dry evenly and efficiently while making the most efficient use of energy by reducing drying time and recirculating hot air.

How do TURBO-DRYERS work?
This video explains how Wyssmont's TURBO DRYERS evenly pile and level materials for quick and efficient drying.

World renown TURBO-DRYERS® offer gentle handling, Internal fans for heat circulating and distributing, frequent transfers for product uniformity.

Standard TURBO-DRYER®
The TURBO-DRYER® consists of a stack of slowly rotating circular trays. Material is fed onto the top tray. After one revolution the material is wiped onto the next lower tray where it is mixed, leveled, and then after one revolution, is wiped to the next tray where the operation is repeated. The trays are contained in an enclosure in which heated air or gas is circulated by internal fans. Print Friendly Version 
Even, thorough, and rapid drying
Uniform inside temperature or zoned temperature regions. The closest product temperature control of any dryer possible. Can give the lowest residual moisture of any dryer. 

Field Erected Units
Wyssmont's TURBO-DRYER® Delivers very uniformly dried Product because material is Intermittently redistributed with Plug-flow operation. Print Friendly Version
A large 20 ft. (6m) diameter field-erected TURBO-DRYER® for drying and cooling various material. Dryer sizes range up to 35 ft. dia. X 60 ft. high (10.6x18.2m) with evaporative capacity of 25,000 lbs. water/hr (11.3 Metric Tons). Unique construction avoids massive foundations. 

Drying with Solvent Recovery
Wyssmont's TURBO-DRYER® Delivers very uniformly dried Product because material is intermittently redistributed with Plug-flow operation. 
Wyssmont is predominant in the field of drying with solvent recovery. Compared with the batch solvent recovery dryers, which they often replace, these systems are safe, economical and continuous, and require almost no operator attention. Their design is built around the special features of the TURBO-DRYER®, which is uniquely able to operate at atmospheric pressure with inert gas as the drying medium in a closed system. Print Friendly Version

Small Units
Wyssmont's TURBO-DRYER® Delivers very uniformly dried Product because material is Intermittently redistributed with Plug-flow operation. 
Suitable for small-scale drying the Model "K" TURBO-DRYER® shown with side panels removed, can handle from 25 to 200 lbs. /hr. (11-90kg) continuously. Measuring 4' (1.2m) in diameter and 5' (1.5m) in height, this all stainless steel unit has the same features as the larger units. It can be used for specialty product applications for which batch unit operations including those requiring vacuums are often used; and for in-plant testing in order to confirm product quality and scale-up for larger commercial scale units. Print Friendly Version

Environmentally Sealed
Wyssmont's TURBO-DRYER® Delivers very uniformly dried Product because material is Intermittently redistributed with Plug-flow operation. 
A welded tank design for sealed operation to dry toxic and/or solvent-wet material. Also for gas-solids reactions that need specific time-temperature histories or special atmospheres. The unit offers plug flow movement with gentle transfer to produce a highly uniform product without breakage. Print Friendly Version

Package Units
Wyssmont's TURBO-DRYER® Delivers very uniformly dried Product because material is Intermittently redistributed with Plug-flow operation. 
A "package" TURBO-DRYER® shipped completely assembled 24 shelves. Diameter: 6 ft. (1.8m). This unit, operating at 300°F (150°C), will dry approximately 150 lbs/hr (68kg/hr) of free-drying product from 30% moisture content to 0.5 %. Package unit sizes start at approx. 4 ft. diam. X 5 ft. high (1.2x1.5m) to 12 ft. diam. X 16 ft. high (3.6 x 4.8m). Print Friendly Version

Heat Treater/ Calciner / Roaster
If long retention time or high degrees of product uniformity are necessary in a heating or cooling application, these units provide a compact, easily operated, reliable answer. Print Friendly Version 
They are especially applicable to heating and cooling very fine powders, with minimum particle size segregation. They are available in designs up to 1200°F (650°C).

Wyssmont Company designs, manufactures and services its high quality, reliable TURBO-DRYER® worldwide to the chemical, specialty chemical, pharmaceutical, mineral, food and food additive industries. Wyssmont manufactures TURBO-DRYER®, continuous tray dryers, crossflows, feeders, lumpbreakers, solvent recovery dryers, multistages, laboratories and calciners.

Wyssmont's Test lab requires only a few pounds of wet material per test and the results provide direct scale up to any production capacity. TURBO-DRYER® are available for Rent to confirm test results and provide larger quantities of dried product for evaluation or test markets.
