MultiDisc Thermal Processor

Heyl Patterson’s MultiDisc Thermal Processor is a low or medium temperature processing unit that uses an innovative conduction-convection heat transfer method to indirectly dry and/or cool bulk solids, including minerals, chemicals, pigments, soils and sludges. Indirect processing offers significant advantages, such as a higher product to surface area ratio, very high thermal efficiency, and minimal exhaust gas volumes requiring less costly air pollution control equipment. The MultiDisc’s innovative design further reduces surface fouling, pluggage and horsepower consumption, effectively reducing your overall operational costs.


MultiDisc Thermal Processors are the perfect equipment for processing:

  • Grain
  • Gypsum
  • Organic Chemicals
  • Pigments
  • Polyester
  • Soda Ash

Agglomerator Granulator

Heyl Patterson designs both rotary and fluid bed agglomerator granulators to process powder and bulk materials into spherical pellets. Our rotary drum granulator utilizes the rotational element of a horizontal drum mounted at a slight incline to create agglomerates. Custom-designed rotary drums can provide short or long retention times, reaction processes, and controlled particle size through rotation speed and inclination. Fluid bed units typically combine drying with particle agglomeration or granulation by spraying the wet feed material onto a bed of seed material.


Agglomerator Granulators are the perfect equipment for processing:

  • Calcium Chloride
  • Copper Ore
  • Fertilizers
  • Gold Ore
  • Zinc Sulfate
