Paddle dryers: How do they work?

Paddle dryers are contact dryers that employ a horizontal cylindrical tank in combination with a multi-vane agitator that is also oriented on the horizontal axis. The paddle agitator may be supported at both ends, but there are models that are supported on one side only, as well as some that can be easily removed.

They usually have a double jacket and combine agitator movement and temperature to enhance liquid phase separation, maximising heat transfer, which is supplied indirectly through the vessel walls. In some cases, heat may also circulate through the agitator. Intense mixing eliminates temperature gradients in the drying bed and moisture in the product.

The paddle dryer can operate under atmospheric or low-pressure conditions, but some equipment incorporates vacuum to aid the separation process, particularly for temperature-sensitive chemicals and pharmaceuticals. When a paddle dryer utilises the appropriate combination of vacuum and temperature, it facilitates the separation of solvents trapped in the product cake, improves heat transfer and has shorter drying times.

Applications of paddle dryers

Thanks to their efficiency, paddle dryers can be used as a second drying stage to remove moisture from cakes obtained from centrifuges, filter presses, disc filters or any other mechanical drying process. They are also used in:

  • The treatment of different types of sludge, to improve final disposal, eliminating solvents by evaporation.

  • In different processes in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.

  • In the processing of food products that are sensitive to the effects of temperature, which could affect their flavour and smell properties.

In our online catalogue you will find paddle dryers with capacities starting at 2 litres that can be used in the development of R&D in laboratories or universities and also as part of quality control in the pharmaceutical, food or related industries.
