Double Cone Vacuum Dryer
Raw material is charged in batches & is subjected to indirect heating while at the same time undergoing rotary motion of the cone assembly. The conical shape of the dryer ensures efficient circulation of hot liquid heating media. Drying takes place when heat flows from outer cone through a jacket, and vacuum is applied in the inner cone. The drying operation is based on the principle that water or other volatile product moves from a zone of low pressure. This is accomplished by warming the product to be dried to raise the vapour pressure of the absorbed or free liquid by vacuum or by sweeping it with Air or Nitrogen current.
Rotary double cone vacuum dryers are suitable for drying & mixing powder (raw materials), pharmaceutical materials, crystalline products, insecticides, pesticides, food products & also for heat sensitive products. The equipment can also be used as rotary evaporator.
