Conical dryers

Conical dryers - Efficient in the drying of thermally sensitive products

Mechanical contact drying of solids, using vacuum vaporisation, is one of the basic processes in industrial operations. At Foeth we have a large stock of used conical dryers in a wide range of capacities and operating conditions. The equipment is from well-known brands such as Hosokawa, Krauss Maffei and Bolz, so quality performance is guaranteed. Visit our facility in Barneveld, The Netherlands, to see all the types of dryers available. You can also request information directly from our website. All machines shown on this page are in stock and available for export worldwide.

The industrial conical dryer - Description and operation

The conical dryer is a batch contact dryer operating under vacuum conditions. It is ideal for drying powders, pastes and viscous material, especially when they are heat sensitive, contain recoverable solvents or are of a hazardous nature. Unlike other mechanical methods, thermal energy is used to stimulate the evaporation of the liquid as a means of achieving very low residual moisture contents.

The quality and safety of the process is the result of the intense and gentle mixing which is achieved by a rotary agitator (screw, belt or scraper blade) which drives the entire product from the centre of the machine, upwards, moving in the radial and axial directions. This ensures a uniform distribution of moisture and temperature over the entire surface of the product, without degrading or damaging it. Depending on the agitator, some of these units are also known as conical screw dryers.

The agitator circulates the product that is in contact with the hot surface, ensuring a more efficient heat exchange. The speed of the agitator is adjustable, as well as the temperature achieved by the double jacket covering the conical vessel and the operating pressure.

The high vacuum achieved in some of these conical dryers ensures a drying operation at much lower temperatures, minimising the impact on the product.

What advantages do conical dryers offer?

Our industrial conical dryers offer many advantages for your processes:

  • They are versatile units that can be used in a variety of processes by adjusting the operating conditions.

  • Short drying times thanks to the effective heat transfer achieved by the combined effect of the rotary agitator and indirect heating.

  • Easy maintenance.

  • Compact design, small effective footprint.

In our catalogue you will find equipment that meets the strictest international design standards (ATEX, GMP). They also incorporate maintenance solutions that make them suitable for applications in the food or pharmaceutical area.
