K-S Paddle Dryer/Processor Videos

The Komline-Sanderson Paddle Dryer and Paddle Processor are highly efficient mechanically agitated, indirect heat transfer devices that add or remove heat from a process mass. They are used for drying, heating, cooling, pasteurization, crystallizing, and reacting of pastes, cakes, powders, and granules.

How does it work?

The unique action is best understood by watching them in action. We have two videos, one showing beads in our pilot unit and the other an actual test drying biosolids.


Our pilot unit is shown rotating with plastic beads to demonstrate the mixing action of our dual, counter-rotating agitators.

This video is of an actual pilot test drying biosolids. Clearly shown are the various phases of drying: wet cake, plastic, shearing, wet granular, and dry granular. Being able to handle all phases of this process is what makes our dryer unique.
