Solids processing for temperature-sensitive products: Two drying methods that optimize quality and efficiency

Solids processing for temperature-sensitive products: Two drying methods that optimize quality and efficiency

Direct drying and indirect drying technologies both offer the advantages of low residence times, making them ideal for temperature-sensitive materials. Two specific types of dryers optimize quality and efficiency: mechanical flash dryers (direct drying) and thin-film paddle dryers (indirect drying). Learn more about these two drying methods to determine which is best for your application. Download our white paper.
