Paddle Dryer System

The Solidaire paddle dryer system is a continuous, thin-layer paddle-dryer that provides extremely efficient thermal treatment.

  • Ultra-high thermal efficiency
  • High speed paddles break up loose agglomerates without particle size attrition
  • Paddles can be adjusted to control residence time
  • Sweep gas is used to inert the environment and promote additional drying
  • Optional Patented Jet Rotor design can continuously inject gas and liquids directly into your product for additional treatment
  • Optional clamshell body design provides quick access for clean-out and paddle adjustment
  • Designed for temperatures to 600 degrees Celsius
  • Continuous pressure or vacuum capability

A series of adjustable-pitch paddles spin at high speeds to keep material in constant, agitated contact and prevent heat transfer wall fouling. For heat-sensitive materials, the short residence time provides fast, efficient industrial drying while keeping control of your product temperature. Similar to the Bepex Torusdisc, the capacities for this paddle dryer system can range from a few hundred kilograms per hour to multiple tons per hour.

The Solidaire paddle dryer system is just one of the thermal technologies we employ to develop industrial process systems that meet your application requirements. At Bepex, we are committed to developing the best thermal process systems using the right technology. Between our proven industrial process equipment and decades of experience serving the industry, we are able to design a paddle dryer system that is right for you.
