Industrial Solutions for the minerals industry

A powerful dryer portfolio for diverse applications

The proven and powerful thyssenkrupp dryers – rotary dryers, flash dryers, the POLSHAFT shaft dryer and the POLPELL drum pelletizer – are fast, gentle and flexible machines offering efficient solutions for a wide range of applications.

At thyssenkrupp we offer you a broad spectrum of effective systems for drying mineral raw materials via direct or indirect processes. In direct processing the gas is mixed with the material to be processed in order to obtain the desired drying material.

Rotary dryer

Reliable machines for high throughputs and ideal for drying and especially for opening up difficult materials and, optionally, for preheating. Drum dryers are available in two versions, the well-known rotary dryer is always customized to a client’s requirements, and the new rotary dryer small series is based on standard machines.

Flash dryer

Designed for fast and gentle drying of fine-grained materials, these flash dryers are characterized by excellent mixing and favourable flow qualities to ensure very high drying speeds.

POLSHAFT shaft dryer

Operating in counterflow, this dryer reduces the moisture content of pellets and briquettes to a level that is suitable for the furnace feed. This dryer’s unique design enables efficient heat exchange and produces only a small amount of fines, thus increasing the plant’s overall efficiency.

POLPELL pelletizer

A highly specialized aggregate for the agglomeration of fine-grained materials in refractory industry. The fine-grained material is mixed with seeds and recycled material to form pellets of homogeneous size.


All thyssenkrupp dryer systems enable high throughputs, easy handling, low maintenance, as well as energy- and cost-optimized operations. With their customer-specific design and efficency-maximizing layout, our dryers are genuine future-proof solutions.
