Some industrial processes require the conversion of liquids, slurries or pastes to free-flowing solids, evaporating the solvent, in continuous operation.
3V Tech supplies Thin Film Dryers, EF type, both vertical and horizontal arrangement, for continuous drying single-pass operation, very effective in processing high sensitive products and when strong product dewatering is required.The dryers can be used also in combination: vertical pre-dryer followed by horizontal dryer, and they can be operated under vacuum or at atmospheric condition.
Depending on the application, our thin film dryers EF type are
fabricated with proper alloy or high quality glass-lined for highly
corrosive applications.3V Tech designs and supplies tailor-made thin film drying plants, which can be arranged as skid-mounted units or suitable systems for on-site installation.Typical applications
- Improving quality and/or stability of the final product
- Final step of product evaporation [link to Evaporation]
- Solute purification from process or waste streams
- Solvent purification from process or waste streams, eliminating solid by-products
- Volume reduction for lower transport or disposal cost (ZLD application)
