Gas Fired Drum Dryer

GL&V has developed a gas fired dryer drum and burner system. Currently commercially installed in the food industry, the dryer system utilizes natural gas to fire relatively simple and robust internal burners for elevated dryer surface temperatures. Modern controls and safety features ensure suitability to operate in modern industrial plant conditions, while simplified burner design reduces cost compared to previous gas fired dryer designs.

GL&V’s gas fired dryers have been developed over the past 10 years. Starting with lab scale paper machine units and culminating in a full scale commercial application in the food industry. 500°F surface temperatures have been achieved and paper drying rates of 3 to 4 times are projected. The exhaust can be recovered for additional process heating. On appropriate grades, dryer sections could potentially be increased in capacity without extending the dryer section.

  • Single Drum may replace 2 to 3 conventional dryers
  • Reduced overall steam requirement
  • Steam drying efficiency of roughly 68% vs. a projected 85% for gas dryer with heat recovery
  • Decreased physical space requirements
  • Non-paper drum drying applications do not need to generate steam for drying
