Komline-Sanderson: Paddle Dryer
August 19, 2003
Drying to moistures of 0.5 to 0.1 percent or lower requires uniform heating and residence time. The K-S Paddle Dryer allows one to reach these objectives with a continuous process. The mixing action of the dryer's dual intermeshing agitators with heated wedge shaped paddles provides for uniform heat transfer to the product wand 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 dryer is indirectly heated the amount of off-gas is minimal. Heating can be done with steam or thermal fluid.
