Mecdry MD

MECDRY MD is a high capacity modular belt dryer.

The transport system of MECDRY MD is made of one or more conveyors/stages whose speed is independently regulated, thus allowing for product accumulation.

The conveyor goes through modular drying sections that have independent air circulation, air heating units, and fresh air make-up.

The number of sections and number of conveyors (stages) in a MECDRY MD is determined on the base of product type and working capacities required.
