AVA has developed the vertical Vacuum Contact Dryer HVW-VT for this initial configuration.
Its helical agitator, which is driven and sealed from the top, ensures a vortex motion of all particles simultaneously. Due to the heated double jacket and the heated agitator, a maximum of energy is introduced into the product. Temperature and vapor pressure are maintained in the desired window by a powerful vacuum pump with condensation unit. In addition, the machine is equipped with an automatic cleaning filter system. Throughout the drying process, pressure and temperature are constantly monitored and automatically controlled.
The vertical design of the HVW-VT ensures an ideal material flow in the production process. The product is filled from above into the machine and leaves it after drying by an outlet valve at the lowest point of the dryer. The conical design with the almost dead space-free interior allows easy and perfect emptying.
The AVA HVW-VT is suitable for use in batch as well as continuous production processes. For integration into a continuous production process, two AVA dryers use a common raw material feed in shuttle mode: while one machine is being filled, the other machine dries and empties the product.
