For batch chemical and pharmaceutical production, vacuum drying is, without a doubt, the most efficient method to obtain dry solids from filtered or centrifuged wet cakes.
Drying occurs under the appropriate combination of vacuum and temperature that generates evaporation of the solvent contained in the cake to be dried. Agitation ensures the homogenous mixing of the end product, improves heat exchange factor and, as a final result, reduces drying time.
3V Tech specializes in agitated, conduction vacuum dryers and offers a wide range of vacuum dryers provided with agitator. All of them use conduction as the product drying method. To improve drying performance, an optional heated agitator is available.
