For specific applications in the chemical, petrochemical, food, and other sectors, KILBURN has built and provided several conveyorized dryers (Band Dryers), the typical continuous convection heat transfer type of dryer.

There is a growing market for dried food products that are just as authentic and high caliber as their fresh equivalents.

To maintain this quality, Kilburn Band Dryer reduces production costs and its environmental impact. Each application's equipment is carefully designed to fit into the processing process and provide the needed final quality and quantity.

We design and manufacture the following types of Band dryers – 1) Single Conveyor Dryer 2) Multistage conveyor dryer 3) Multiple Conveyor dryer 4) Heavy Duty Conveyor dryer


  • Uniformity

    Multiple variations in airflow direction make it possible to acquire the optimal drying characteristics needed to accomplish product uniformity and quality.

  • Control

    A highly effective air circulation device is used to push warm air upward or downward through the band-mounted product. The controlled moist air is then extracted to remove evaporative water at the optimum rate.

  • Economical

    Turbine-type fans with variable speed drives that are PLC-controlled are specially engineered for low power consumption.

  • Minimal Heat Loss

    The drying chamber has extremely effective insulation throughout to reduce heat loss and increase effectiveness.
