    Case Study - Upgrade of a Drum Dryer Scraper Blade

    An existing customer at their new site was experiencing issues with scraper blade performance and durability. The blade was failing to clean the drum on each revolution, leading to a build-up of product on the drum, adversely effecting efficiency and blade life.

    After a site visit, investigation and discussions, it was identified that the scraper blade was not of the correct material or design for the operation and a full blade redesign was proposed. 

    1. Redesign the blade, by increasing the blade thickness making the blade more rigid; remove the existing slots in the blade which were causing the blade to lift off the drum.

    2. Change the bevel angle on the blade to allow the material to come away from the drum much cleaner and falls away from the drum much better.

    3. Upgrade from Carbon steel to stainless steel avoiding the risk of rust contamination in the product. 


    Outcome of the Drum Dryer Blade Upgrade

    Since the above actions were implemented, the drum is completely clean on each pass of the blade, as a result a vast improvement in efficiency and durability has been seen. This means that the time between blade changes has increased from every 2-3 months to every 6-12 months reducing machine downtime and associated costs significantly.

    There has also been a major Health and Safety benefit as the operator no longer needs to use a manual hand tool to remove the excess product missed by the old blade, with a full safety cage being designed and installed.
