Ploughshare Mixer, Plow mixer, Plough Shear Mixer, Vacuum shovel dryer
plow vacuum dryers provide the quickest method of drying products for the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, and other industries. These units, utilizing the mechanically fluidized bed mixing principle, You can mix, react, and dry all in the same vessel. Our drying cycles are faster than the industry average because of careful considerations in heat transfer and higher U factors built into our designs. All dryers include solvent recovery systems for maximum efficiency.
Plow Vacuum Dryers
The mechanically fluidized bed mixing principle accomplishes this by suspending and mixing material mechanically, rather than with gas pressure. The fact that all particles are suspended mechanically allows for very efficient drying under vacuum. Because the particles are suspended mechanically, vapor pressure can be reduced while maintaining the fluidized bed. This fluidized state exposes the maximum surface area of the material to both high vacuum and the heated outer vessel walls. Drying can be done quicker and at lower temperatures than by using any other method.
Typical Applications for a Plow Vacuum Dryers
- Pharmaceutical Intermediates
- Filter Cakes
- Ceramic & Semi-Conductor Material
- Starch Modification
- Food Products
- Chemical Products
- Metal Powders
- Contaminated Soil Treatment
SHREE BHAGWATI shovel dryers’ machine is batch vacuum dryer. The mixing element are frequency controlled for ideal adaptation to the process. Special rotating mixing element, installed in a cylindrically drum equipped with a temperature control jackets, create a three-dimensionally products movement. The resulting contact frequency of the particle with the heat exchange surface lead to incredibly short drying time.
The Vacuum Shovel Dryer / Single Pot System combines mixings, liquid injections, granulations in one system. It allows for mixing, granulations and drying in one process, without stopping or opening the system and is ideal for granulation/drying, drying of sensitive ingredients (e.g. botanics), manufacturing of effervescent tablets, etc. Compliance with cGMP and FDA
The intelligent products movement ensures for intense contact of individuals product particle with the heated containers wall while also providing very gentle products treatment.
- Technology: vacuum, paddle
- Batch/continuous: batch
- Applications: for the pharmaceutical industry, for the chemical industry
The machine with chopper rotating at high speeds is used to disperse the product during transition between phases. Product surfaces are opened up during this process. This leads to a significant increase in drying capacity and prevents moisture and temperature gradients. Fine particles pulled along by solvent vapours are separated in the filter and returned to the product bed through pneumatic filter cleaning and drying materials such as powders, bulk solids, granules, pastes and viscous slurries.
