K-S Paddle Dryer
K-S Paddle Dryer for Biosolids, Sludge, and Residuals Drying
The K-S Paddle Dryer is used worldwide for drying a variety of sludges, biosolids and by-products, to generate dry stable products, reduce disposal cost and convert waste into marketable by-products. In municipal waste water treatment plants (MWWTP) the K-S Paddle Dryer System produces Class A Biosolids in accordance with the EPA's 503 regulations allowing the dried granular material to be used beneficially as a slow release fertilizer or soil amendment. Dried waste products have also been used as fuel in boilers and cement kilns.
Dual counter rotating shafts with unique intermeshing wedge shaped paddles produce uniform heating and high heat transfer rates. The use of hollow paddles for heat transfer results in a compact machine. Indirectly heated with steam or circulated thermal fluid (hot oil) the K-S Paddle Dryer has a thermal efficiency of approximately 98%. Non-condensable gas from the dryer that might require treatment for odors is minimal.
