Steam Tube Dryer (STD) is an indirect heat dryer using steam tubes disposed inside the rotating shell as the heat source. Steam is introduced into a header through a rotary joint and then distributed into the tubes. The header is also provided with condensate ejection pipes which discharged condensate as quickly as formed. The material to be dried is fed into a screw feeder through a chute feeder and then into the dryer. The material is then in contact with the steam tubes during passage through the dryer and finally discharged from a discharge head. Carrier gas accomopanied by vaporized moisture travels in the dryer counter to the flow of the material, finally being removed from the feed head.
