Laboratory-scale high-end vacuum dryer
AVA has recently developed and manufactured a laboratory-scale high-end vacuum dryer for a leading lab for flame retardants. The compact machine fits into any chemical laboratory and is suitable for mounting on a lab table. In terms of performance, however, no compromises have to be made.
The system is designed for proceeding (dust) explosive products under inert atmosphere. The process temperature can be varied between 5 and 300 °C. The system offers many features to cover a wide range of application scenarios: heating and cooling with a well-defined product temperature profile; Reacting and drying at application-specific pressure level; a chopper for dispersing agglomerates; a nozzle to inject liquid additives; Thermal insulation as personal protection ...
For laboratory use with frequent product changes, easy access to the interior is very important. This requirement is fully taken into account in the machine design. The front door (heated and thermally insulated) can be widely opened and all components installed in the mixing drum can be removed individually. Assembly and preparation work is very easy and quick to learn.
Similar machines have already been supplied for a wide range of applications such as flame retardants, battery packs, catalysts, etc. Sophisticated processes have been successfully carried out, eg. Mixing, drying, reacting, wetting, granulating or any combination of these methods.
