The purpose of this study is to develop and commercialize a paddle-type fluidized dryer. The drying system used in this study, was designed to attach a paddle-type fluidized mixer to a dryer. The drying system is based on the drying method to generate thermal contacts, as fluidized layers are generated due to a paddle mechanism. Accordingly, the time of drying is short and material damage is very little. Also, the drying system operates as a closer system so it can be utilized not only for food and chemical materials, but also for environmental pollution materials. According to its performance test, the drying system is possible to dry low-moisture contents and its drying performance is outstanding. In conclusion, the drying system designed for this study, is likely to have great potential for commercialization.
