Iron ore dryer, also known as mineral dryer, is a kind of rotary drum dryer. It is available in handling a large number of bulk materials, such as limestone, clay, coal powder, fly ash, slag, metal concentrate, tailings, and other materials that have certain humidity. The iron ore dryer features reliable and simple operation, strong adaptability, and large processing capacity, widely used in metallurgy industry, chemical plant, power plant, mine industry, cement plant, etc.

In iron ore pelletizing plants, the iron ore dryer is one of the important pelletizing equipment. During the production process, the raw material (iron ore concentrate) moisture is generally between 11% – 15%. Before they are fed into the pelletizing disc, they should be dehydrated firstly. The main function of the dryer is to remove water from the iron ore concentrate. The second is to mix the added auxiliary material (bentonite) with the iron ore concentrate by using the cylinder rotation so as to facilitate the smooth progress of the next process.

The traditional drying equipment has the disadvantages of large investment, large space occupation, and low thermal efficiency. Iron ore dryers manufactured by AGICO overcomes these shortcomings, has high production efficiency, reasonable price, and long service life, bringing high benefits to customers.

Iron Ore Dryer Structure

The main body of the iron ore dryer is a slightly inclined and rotatable cylinder. Wet materials enter from the higher end through a feeding pipe and move continuously to the discharge port at the other end. In this process, the wet material directly or indirectly exchanges heat with the heat carrier to achieve the purpose of drying and then discharged through a belt conveyor or screw conveyor.
