Springs Fab and our customer worked together to redesign and supply an 8ft diameter by 45ft long rotary dryer shell for the end user. The end user dries a variety of grades of metallurgical coke, primarily for the steel industry. The product that is processed in the dryer is extremely abrasive. The end user had purchased a used rotary dryer in the earlier 90`s. Springs Fab worked with our customer to complete the detailed design with several improvements and fabricated a replacement dryer, shop assembled it for testing and then shipped to the site for installation. Several years later Springs Fab and our customer repeated to process to replace the shell a second time with additional improvements added to the deisgn. The second replacement shell is completely lined with abrasion resistant replaceable liners and lifters made from an abrasion resistant composite plate. The unit was completed on time and the new shell was installed in less than a week.
