K-S Paddle Dryer / Processor
Available from Komline-Sanderson
The Komline-Sanderson Paddle Dryer / Processors are highly efficient, mechanically agitated, indirect heat transfer devices that add or remove heat from a process mass. They are used for drying, heating, cooling, pasteurization, crystallizing, and reacting of pastes, cakes, powders, and granules.
Dual counter-rotating shafts with unique intermeshing wedge shape paddles produce intimate mixing and optimize heat transfer. The use of hollow paddles for heat transfer results in a compact machine. The heat transfer medium: steam, oil, thermal fluid, water, or glycol is isolated from the process mass.
Komline-Sanderson offers vapor tight designs for applications with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or hazardous materials. Temperature sensitive materials can be dried at low temperatures under vacuum.
