Cylindro Conical Dryer

The Cylindro Conical Dryer CCD with a central shaft agitator was developed to be used both as a dryer (e.g. for filter cake) and also an evaporator when products have to pass a critical phase change from fully liquid to final bulk solid. The big advantage is the compact and space saving design.

The Cylindro Conical Dryer CCD with a central shaft agitator was developed to be used both as a dryer (e.g. for filter cake) and also an evaporator when products have to pass a critical phase change from fully liquid to final bulk solid. The robust mixing element is showing its effective performance also during liquid and high viscous pasty phase to finally achieve the desired solid phase. As a dryer it is designed with a vacuum-/pressure rated vessel, heating jacket and integrated dust filter. Like for the CCM  (Cylindro Conical Mixer) also the CCD offers a big advantage with a compact and space saving design.

Special properties for the customer’s benefit:

  • Short drying times because all product of the batch is permanently in motion thanks to a heated helix agitator (optional)
  • Uniform heat distribution during the process without cold spots
  • Variable speed of the helix agitator for optimum product quality
  • Useful working volume from 15% to 80% of the gross volume
  • Suitable for powders, liquids and pastes
  • Very good discharging
  • Very good heat transfer (high k-values)
  • Shaft sealing and bearings installed outside of the drying chamber
  • ATEX design and EHEDG compliant design
