PAUL O. ABBE: Vacuum Dryers

October 3, 2011

Rota-Cone vacuum dryers are reportedly an effective and economical solution for many solids drying applications. The clean internal design can provide complete product discharge and easy cleanout. Vacuum drying can lower the evaporation temperature of liquids to improve heat and mass transfer and protect temperature-sensitive products. The equipment offers working capacities form 0.1-400 ft3.

Complete systems are available, including vacuum, solvent recovery and heating packages. Additional options include high-pressure half-pipe jacket, liquid addition, high-speed lump breakers, automated drum loading and discharging, inert gas purging, and PLC controls.
