The universal dryer features a high-speed, removable chopper that breaks up lumps of wet or dry agglomerates while providing additional mixing capability, shorter drying times with the highest possible fill volume.
The Universal Dryer is ideal for difficult drying processes that involve drying, mixing, milling, granulation, evaporation and/or crystallization. Since the product area is completely contained, this product is appropriate for pharmaceutical intermediates and fine chemical applications.
Based on the well established and proven Filter/Dryer technology, agitated pan dryers are differentiated by their heated flat bottom plate that effectively enlarges the heating area of the vessel.
It is specifically designed for the batch drying of solids and uses a unique "vortex" mixing action for improved drying performance.
The rotary vacuum paddle dryer (RVPD) is a complete drying system used to obtain dry powder from wet cake or solutions. The drying operation is generally a batch process and is often carried out under vacuum. The product is heated through direct contact with the heated vessel and agitator surfaces. The heating of the dryer can be accomplished by use of steam or adequate heat transfer fluid.
In addition to standard batch drying applications, the paddle dryer can also be used for low temperature drying, reaction, crystallization, extraction of useful liquids and recovery of solvents.
The standard design of the paddle dryer system includes a dust filter, condenser, receiver and vacuum pump. Other features include:
