The screw conveyor dryer (SCD) finds varied applications in the process industries either as a pre-dryer or for post-drying operation. In certain cases, it can be used as the main dryer. The full potential of SCD has not been exploited for the lack of its understanding. The conveying of paste or particles through a screw conveyor may follow a near plug flow behavior; however, it is essential to ascertain a desired level of inter-particle mixing during the course of drying/conveying so as to… CONTINUE READING
