SMS offers customized contact drying technologies to dry solutions, suspensions, slurries, pastes, filter cakes and moist granules. Our technical solutions are based on our longstanding experience from a huge number of industrial applications and tests in our test center.

The main feature in contact drying is a direct heat transmission through the contact of the product with the heating surface. Hence, hot air is not required in contact drying. Therefore, outlet air treatment is minimized and there are no energy losses with air leaving the system. Our product portfolio includes a broad range of contact dryers in order to apply the advantages of contact drying to a broad range of feed products:
