Feed material, whether wet solids, liquids, pastes, or slurries, enter via the material inlet. The rotating discs begin agitating and conveying material throughout the machine while heating or cooling the bed of material. Stationary plows or breaker bars can be mounted in-between the discs to provide additional resistance and break apart any cohesive forms, ensuring more efficient drying. An adjustable weir at the discharge establishes bed height and residence time, allowing the rotor speed to operate independently from residence time. The TorusDisc has been used in a variety of industries and applications, from drying silica gel and clay, to crystallizing plastics. Models range from several hundred kilograms to tens of tons per hour. Operational versatility allows for heating/cooling, drying, reacting or crystallizing your material.
The TorusDisc 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 can design a paddle dryer system that is right for you.
