Welcome to Louisville Dryer Company
At Louisville Dyer, we will custom design all exceptionally operating dryers, kilns, coolers or other rotary devices specifically configured for your application.
Why Louisville Dryer? – We understand all types of materials that you process – chemicals, grains, acids, abrasives and corrosive materials, large volumes of aggregate and virtually everything under the sun.
How Louisville Dryer? – Thousands of dryers share the The LouisvilleŽ design. We understand the duty cycle, wear characteristics and uptime service needed for the dependability that many industries require. Often, the rotary equipment is on one mechanical operation of a very extensive and costly manufacturing process. The rotary process equipment must be counted on to work in a dependable and repeatable fashion.
Who? – Engineering @ Louisville Dryer – Our engineers and application specialists use their extensive experience and the latest in mechanical vessel software, including finite element analysis plus the vast actual operating history, records of performance for thousands of different dryers and hundreds of different applications.
Who? – Manufacturing @ Louisville Dryer – A rotating vessel is unlike almost any other mechanical equipment. Since it must operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, it will make literally millions of cycles within its lifespan. The precision tolerances, both laterally and longitudinally, as well as the degree of runout of critical components, can translate to two decades of difference in how much service life (and maintenance upkeep) for any rotary dryer, kiln or other vessel.
Examples: There are some LouisvilleŽ design units currently in the field that have operated consistently for over 70 years. One large chemical processor has reported that the LouisvilleŽ design units they operate will outlast standard type dryers by up to three times the lifespan. This could give an additional 10 to 20 years of operating cycle and capital cost investment payback.
Another manufacturer reported having a 35-year-old LouisvilleŽ design dryer that was still in good condition and operating on a daily basis; other standard fabricated units have lasted their application less than five years.
