Commonly, the drying medium is hot gas or hot air controlled to flow in either the same direction or counter direction with material flow direction. However, sometimes it is designed to have transverse flow (hot gas or hot air flows in a transverse direction with material flow direction). In general, rotary dryers have mixed drying aspects between flash dryer and tray dryer by using ieat conduction of rotary drum wall and heat convection of hot gas flow. The said dryers have Various limitations such as the drying rate fells tiff after some moisture of the material has been removed, problems with drying time and drying cost, etc. An alternative method for improving the drying rate is to increase the temperature of hot gas used in the drying, increase the contacting surface area between hot gas andmaterial and manage hot gas m the drying chancer to allow hot gas evenly contact with the material, so that the dried malerM is tmifomih/ dried using less drying time, also quality of the dried material meets the drying standard.

This embodiment gives an advantage that the material can be transferred continuously from the first rotary dryers with multi-drying chambers to the second and third rotary dryers with mufti-drying chambers, so that it is able to control the drying time in each chamber of the rotary dryer with multi-drying chambers. Also, the temperature of hot gas can be controlled to be individually different in each rotary dryer with multi-drying chambers to be proper with the materials having different moisture levels and different sizes in big-small, long-short and thin-thick shapes.

Next, the operation of the rotary dryer with imifti-drying chambers according to this invention will be described for clearer understanding of this invention. The rotary dryer with mutti-drymg chambers according to this invention has the following operation:

- Electricity is supplied to the motor 2.1 to rotate the motor and activate the drive' assembly 2 in order to drive the moist material inlet part 4, the dried material outlet part 5 and the drying chamber assembly 3 to be rotated following the rotation of the xiriver¾ssembly 2.

1 ' - The moist material is fed to the moist material inlet assembly 6 and flows down to the moist material inlet part 4 in accordance with the gravity force.

- The rotation of the moist material inlet part 4 cause the moist material to flow into medryirig chan÷iberasselnbly 3.

- The rotation of the drying chamber assembly 3 and the installation ' of the plurality of material flow control assembly 13 -into each of the plurality of drying chambers 9 cause the Material to ftow'fcmard together with turn-over of the material.

- At the same tmie, hot gas is fed to the hot

gas then flows to the hot gas inlet chamber 14 and flows through foe plurality of drying charnber enclosure walls 12 (in case each of the plurality of drying chamber enclosure walls is shaped asi a porous and curved rectangular wall 12.1 on a circumference of the dVying chamber assembly 3), after that, hot gas will flow in a direction that is transverse with material flow direction to cause heat and moisture exchanging. - Hot gas flowed through the material will turn to be moist gas with more moisture and decreased temperature, then will flow out to the moist gas outlet chamber IS via the moist gas outlet 8.2.1 being at the tower housing 8.2.

- The material that is passed heat and moisture exchanging will be gradually dried and flows out from the drying chamber to enter the dried material outlet part 5 then flows out from the dried material outlet assembly 7 to the next process.

- In case that each of the plurality of drying chamber enclosure walls is shaped as a solid and curved rectangular wall 12.2 on a circumference of the drying chamber assembly 3, in which hot gas flows in the same direction with material flow direction. It is necessary to provide the hot gas inlet 6.1 being at the moist material inlet assembly 6 and the moist gas outlet 7.1 being at the dried material outlet assembly 7, but without the upper housing 8.1, the hot gas inlet 8.1.1, the tower housing 8.2 and the moist gas outlet 8.2.1.
