Dry. Drier. Driest. Bepex Does it All

Bepex offers the industry’s broadest range of drying technologies, helping you to create the best solution for your drying process challenges. Working with Bepex, the question is never “can you dry this?”, it’s “what’s the best possible way to dry and process this material?”

Why choose Bepex?

The industry’s broadest range of drying technologies means the best fit for your application. Direct or indirect drying. Batch or continuous. Flash or long residence time. Bepex has you covered. Plus, Bepex eliminates guesswork and risk. Our Process Development Center will help you design and select the best drying process to fit your application. Then we’ll turn our benchtop analysis into action. Whether testing a single drying operation or simulating an entire process system, we have the space, equipment, and expertise to validate, quantify, and transform your process design to production reality.

Complete Product Line

Other suppliers try to fit your needs to their often limited product lines. Not at Bepex. We offer the industry’s most complete collection of capabilities – not just individual products. Direct and indirect drying. Instant and long residence drying. Pre- and post- drying preparation and processing. We do it all. So Bepex focuses on designing total systems, not just selling products. The result? Superior performance. Compact operations. Utility savings, lower overall cap ex requirements, and increased sustainability.

Process Innovation

With Bepex, traditional thinking and existing technologies will never limit your new product development and production. Bepex is the category innovator, with a proven track record of developing new dryer technologies that challenge traditional dryers by operating more efficiently, have more flexibility and capabilities, produce extremely high product quality, and give you more process control to achieve precise quality goals.

Risk Reduction

Cut risk and eliminate unknowns.  All drying capabilities can be tested in our 25,000 square foot pilot lab facility to determine the drying curve, feasibility, and ideal equipment technologies and footprint for your project. Our thermal experts will help you examine, design, test, and quantify implementing the right equipment and conditions to meet your processing goals.

Process Development

Step 01


All new inquiries begin with a feasibility study. These studies aim to provide preliminary insights into the viability of a commercial process. Using as little as 100 grams of material, we can begin early process design, develop plans for pilot-testing and/or confirmation, and begin providing early economic estimates. Our experience across our wide range of technologies gives us a unique ability to provide quick feedback on the feasibility of your process.

Step 02


From our learnings, we’ll begin the process development work. The primary work in this phase takes place in the form of pilot-scale testing in our Process Development Center. Our pilot tests look a bit different than what you may have experienced in the past. Each test is designed to measure the system performance and feasibility rather than that of any single machine.

Each system is custom assembled for each test. Our goal is to provide as much of a pilot-scale simulation as possible while gathering scale-up data to deliver on commercial capacities. When a certain technology proves ineffective, we’ll draw from our range of options to determine if there is a better fit. The Process Development Center is our sandbox to build, test, and revise to ensure we get every detail right.

Step 03

Budget Evaluation

With a successful pilot simulation completed, we now have everything we need to scale up and provide proposals for capital equipment with included performance guarantees.

Step 04

System Design And Build

After receipt of the purchase order, we begin with both equipment and system engineering. Each proprietary technology we sell is custom-designed and built per application. We do not have any off-the-shelf units. At this stage, your exact system begins to take shape, including auxiliary equipment, process flow diagrams, process and instrumentation diagrams, safety provisions, and more.

Step 05


After delivery and installation of your new system, Bepex will provide a mechanical check to ensure everything is placed according to plan. This is followed shortly thereafter by system commissioning. This is where our pilot-scale simulations become invaluable, as our team of application engineers, controls technicians, and sales engineers begin working with your team to successfully bring your system online.

Step 06


At this point, you’re up and running at rate, producing a quality product, but our work doesn’t stop there. 

Following commissioning, Bepex remains a reliable partner, providing quality OEM parts, immediate field service, process optimization, training, system troubleshooting, and more. We have consistently had high customer retention rates, and we believe it is due in large part to our comprehensive approach to serving our customers long after the original sale.
