AeryDry Conveyor Dryers are available in modular or field-assembly configurations. Customers enjoy reduced installation cost and start-up time with the standard modular design. These units are fully assembled and tested at the factory prior to shipping. The field assembly option is ideal for job sites with very limited access, where customers prefer to assemble the dryer completely on site.
