McLanahan has long been the leader in designing and building quality rotary equipment. This continues to be true with their rotary drying units for manure bedding. These triple-pass rotary dryers have long been considered the work horses of the drying world, and the bedding dryers are no exception.
Manure Bedding Dryers are built to McLanahan’s high-quality standards. Each Bedding Dryer arrives at the dairy already installed on a frame with the controls and gas train attached. The installation involves attaching the mounting legs, hooking up the electricity and plumbing, and running the exhaust ductwork. The system is ready to operate once the infeed and outfeed systems are installed.
Unlike many other rotary dryers, each drum tire is machined from a one-piece forging. It's also bolted into place rather than welded or shrunk on, which allows the tire to be replaced quickly and easily. The drum drive and fan are located above the drum, creating a compact footprint and safer working environment. Access panels are provided in the drum and dust collection system to allow for quick inspection and maintenance. Sensors and controls monitor the inlet and outlet temperatures to ensure a consistent product is produced.
McLanahan has a full team of engineers and technical personnel who can design a complete separation, dewatering and drying system with infeed conveyors and conveyors to move the finished material, ensuring the dairy gets the best system for their needs.
