This paper deals with the process of heat transfer in contact drying. Heat transfer during contact drying for a stagnant bed without mixing and drying with a mechanically agitated bed were theoretically and experimentally investigated for a contact paddle dryer. The effect of material mixing on the process of heat transfer was evaluated. For a theoretical description of heat transfer in a contact dryer, the penetration model was used. Experiments with green wood chips were realized on an

Mixing intensifies the process, it showed an increase to roughly twice in heat transfer for the tested experimental dryer.
