PARTS - FLIGHTING SYSTEMS

Flights are specially designed “fins” to assist in the movement of material as it travels through a rotary dryer. Investing in an efficient flighting system will maximize your fuel savings as well as increase overall production. Industrial Kiln & Dryer Group and our sister companies have provided thousands of flighting systems for all types of rotary drying and processing equipment. We can fully replace, modify and/or strengthen your current flighting system no matter the type or brand of your unit.
