The dryer drum is accurately fabricated to ensure proper heating of aggregates with minimum heat loss. Specially designed flights lift and cascade the aggregate to reduce the final moisture content to 0.5% (by weight). It is supported on steel rollers through steel tyres with idlers and guide rollers. A fully automatic high-pressure auto jet burner is mounted at one end of the dryer drum. The discharge chute design discharges heated aggregate directly onto the load out conveyor.
