n. (plural of flight English)


Flights are an English alternative/progressive rock band formed in May 2010 in Bristol. The band comprises Joel Pearce on vocals/guitars, Joe Newcombe on guitars/vocals, Dean Bowden on bass/vocals and Adam Cann on drums.

In describing their music, Cann has said "We’ve fallen into progressive rock – soundscapy too I think.” Flights cite their primary influences as Oceansize, Radiohead, Reuben and Yourcodenameis:milo. Flights have also described their style as "Some big guitars, some pretty guitars, irregular time signatures, harmonised vocals and a whole lotta groove."

Flights (rotary dryer)

Flights, also commonly referred to as “lifters,” are used in rotary dryers and rotary coolers to shower material through the process gas stream. Affixed to the interior of the rotary drum, these fin-like structures scoop up material from the bed and shower it through the gas stream as the drum rotates.

This showering creates a curtain of material spanning the width of the rotary dryer or cooler, helping to maximize the efficiency of heat transfer.

Depending on the needs of the material and the process, flights are engineered in a variety of designs and placement patterns in order to create a maximum efficiency curtain, while still retaining the integrity of the product.
