Komline-Sanderson: Paddle Dryer
October 1, 2003
Drying to moistures of 0.5 to 0.1 percent or lower requires uniform heating and residence time. The K-S Paddle Dryer from Komline-Sanderson allows one to reach these objectives with a continuous process. The Drying to moistures of 0.5 to 0.1 percent or lower requires uniform heating and residence time. Tmixing action of the K-S Paddle Dryer's dual intermeshing agitators with heated wedge-shaped paddles provides for uniform heat transfer to the product and high heat transfer rates. Since the product moves through the dryer by displacement, residence time is controlled by the feed rate and the overflow weir height. Because the K-S Paddle Dryer is indirectly heated, the amount of off-gas is minimal. Heating can be done with steam or thermal fluid.
