Kilns and dryers consist of metal cylindrical shells that rotate on rollers driven by a chain drive or gearmotor, all mounted on foundations or skids. Within the shell, flights lift the material so it can tumble, mix, and dewater. A burner or heater mounted on the end of the shell works in conjunction with a blower to blast hot air through the kiln. Typically a dust collector operates on the discharge end to filter out airborne hazards, and dried material is discharged having been partly classified. Kilns are commonplace at cement plants, aggregate plants, tailings handling plants, coking coal plants, lumber mills, and see growing use in fly ash processing, and other specialty applications.
