Norris Thermal Technologies was founded in 1965 by Lee Norris. He began manufacturing agricultural bins, elevator legs, and drying systems under the name Lee E Norris Construction and Grain Company. He later partnered with two others forming BNW Industries, where they started designing and manufacturing Beltomatic conveyor dryers. Two of his sons Aaron and Dan joined the company over the years. They now run the company as President and Vice President respectively.

Our Product Lines

Norris Thermal Technologies designs and manufactures several product lines including Beltomatic Dryers and Game Changer Smokers (we design and manufacture all of our systems here in Indiana).  We also are the sole North American representative for Safesteril Steam Sterilization and Biogreen.  These two product lines are based on Spirajoule technology from ETIA, based out of France.


The Beltomatic brand of products are conveyor systems designed to dry, roast, or cool your product. Currently we have over 700 units sold worldwide. The dryer systems range from two to eight feet wide, and twelve to fifty feet long.


This platform is for the thermochemical conversion of all types of waste streams by either torrefaction, pyrolysis, or gasification. Biogreen transforms biomass and other waste products into biochar, oil, and gas using electricity.

Game CHanger

This smoking system is a literal Game Changer for the commercial kitchen. Our system has the ability to cold smoke, smoke with heat, be used as a holding cabinet, a dehydrator, or even as an oven up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.


We are putting together educational material about the process of using belt conveyor dryer systems, along with tips and tricks for getting the most out of your systems.  This comes from over 50 years of expertise in the industry.


Safesteril is dedicated to the thermal treatment of food products from zero degrees Celcius to 300 degrees Celcius. The Safesteril process is designed for steam sterilization and pasturization of all types of dried bulk solids.
