The largest industrial dryers can be large enough to take up entire rooms and process very large material volumes. Industrial rotary dryers are used for a wide range of applications in many industries. Large scale bakeries and other food processing operations often sell their waste food materials to farms for animal feed.

In many such cases, the feed must be dried before it can be packaged; rotary heaters are often used to dry bulk quantities of food waste in these situations. In other cases, waste products from manufacturing processes, preprocessed minerals and other materials are dried in rotary heaters before or after an industrial process.

Rotary dryers vary widely in terms of their sizes and configurations, but they all operate based on the same principle. In the smallest consumer clothes dryers, a rotating chamber is loaded with wet clothes. When the chamber is closed, a heating system, usually gas fired, heats air. That air is forced into the drying chamber and then vented through an outlet, removing moisture as it exits.

New, dry air is then forced into the drying chamber, and the cycle continues. As the process of air transfer carries itself out, the drying chamber, which is usually finned along its edges to catch clothing, spins around, exposing a greater amount of the clothing's surface area to the heated air. Industrial rotary dryers operate in the same way, but on a much larger scale.

In the most sensitive drying applications, industrial rotary dryers can use heated inert gasses instead of heated air to dry objects. Air is a main ingredient in many combustion reactions, and combining heat, air and combustible materials in a spinning enclosure is generally not advisable.
