Vacuum Drying

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.

3V Cogeim specialises in agitated, conduction vacuum dryers.

Flexachem as their distributors can offer a range of equipment which can be divided into two different designs,

  1. a series of vertical dryers consisting of:
    – MODEL EV, commonly refered to as “Pan Dryer”.
    – MODEL EMV, conical dryers with rotating orbital arms and auger mixers.
    – MODEL EMV-DE, conical dryers with helical type agitators
    and
  2. a series of horizontal dryers or “Paddle Dryers” consisting of:
    – MODEL EC, developed for the chemical industry.
    – MODEL EP and ES, developed for the pharmaceutical industry.

Applications:
• Drying filtered cakes from centrifuge, nutsche filters, belt and disc filters or filter presses that
are wet with water and/or solvents
• Drying cakes with high solid content
• Bulk chemicals and/or pharmaceuticals production
• Food grade applications
• Steam sterilisation
• Flame retardants
• Essences, fragrances, aromas, flavours
• Waste and sludges treatment
• Biofuels

We also offer equipment designed for continuous processes like the rotating pressure filter, Model FRP, and semi continuous processes like the leaf filter, Model FAP.
