Commercial sawdust/wood chips drying system

Wood chips drying plays an important role in the whole process of wood pellet production.

The wood chips dryer system controls and ensures the output moisture of wood chips/sawdust is always below 12%, ensuring good quality of finished products for wood chips/sawdust when going through the pelletizing machine to produce wood pellets.

  • Wood chips dryer system is used to evaporate water and dry fiber-type wood chips/sawdust for the needs of processing wood pellets in fuel technology
  • The drum dryers for wood chips are designed on single and multi-pass technology according to customer requirement


Model Input Moisture (MC%) Output Moisture (MC%) Water Evaporation (Kg/H) Ouput Capacity (Kg/H)
MSG – 6T 45 ÷ 50 12 ± 2% 4,800 6,000 ÷ 8,000
MSG – 8T 45 ÷ 50 12 ± 2% 6,000 8,000 ÷ 10,000
MSG – 10T 45 ÷ 50 12 ± 2% 7,600 10,000 ÷ 12,000
MSG – 12T 45 ÷ 50 12 ± 2% 9,120 12,000 ÷ 14,000
  • Drum length: 15 – 18 meters
  • Drum diameter: 3.2 – 4 meters


  • The wood chip drying systems feature single and multi-pass technology that moves material (wood chips/sawdust) through the drum in an air stream created by the dryer-induced-draft fan. Multiple passes are mechanically interlocked to rotate at the same speed. As the drum rotates, the product is repeatedly showered into the rotary wood chip dryer’s hot air. 
  • Depending on customers’ requirements, the wood chips drying system manufactured by Vina Nha Trang can evaporate water up to 9000 kg/hour.




  • Furnace burner and drum dryer are automatically controlled via the PLC screen.
  • The wood chips dryer machine’s humidity sensor system adjusts the drying temperature continuously to help the output material (wood chips/sawdust) always meet the standard moisture.



  • Temperature and spark sensors are installed on the whole drying wood chips system.
  • The system will automatically stop running and activate the water spray when the sensor detects fire signs. 
  • Safe control mode reduces the risk of fire and explosions caused by human mistakes.


  • The wood chips/sawdust dryer with a 2-level cyclone filter system helps to minimize the amount of dust released into the environment.





  • The dust filter system through 2 levels of the cyclone will increase the efficiency of the wood shavings dryer machine.
  • Minimize the dust released into the environment
  • Gear-driven rotary drum drying system should operate stably, and be easy to maintain.
  • Ensure the required quality of wood chips/sawdust to make wood pellets
  • Modern technology
  • High durability
  • Easy to operate
  • Electricity saving
  • Improve processing efficiency for the whole system
  • Minimize labor workforce in the processing line


What is the maximum capacity of the actual wood chips drying system installed by VNT?
