Conical Paddle Vacuum Dryer

The Hywell Machinery conical paddle vacuum dryer is a high efficiency vertical type drying equipment which integrates drying, crushing, vacuum decompression and mixed powder. The HW series conical paddle vacuum dryer have three to five times efficiency of the same specification double cone vacuum dryer. The unique paddle design of the vertical, centrally-driven dryer combines extremely fast drying rates with a compact design. It is a universal vacuum dryer that has been developed to enable vacuum, atmospheric and pressurized processing of a variety of materials such as powders, filter cakes, pastes and viscous slurries, especially when they are brittle and/or heat sensitive.

Conical Paddle Vacuum Dryer Introduction

The Hywell Machinery conical vacuum dryer has a few advantages that make it suitable. It is an extremely gentle dryer/mixer for minimal particle size degradation. Liquids can be dosed in directly into the active zone in a controlled fashion for an even coating across the entire batch. The drying phase is by vacuum with a solvent recovery system to allow for the recovery of the solvents that were used to dissolve the active ingredients.  The discharge from the vessel is from the bottom of the cone by a full port valve, there is no bottom bearing to support the arm which could generate heat or require lubricants in the dryer.  It also allows for the entire batch to discharge quickly with minimal residual material left behind. the conical paddle vacuum dryer is often named a vacuum mixer dryer, conical paddle vacuum dryer, vertical conical vacuum dryer, and vertical ribbon vacuum dryer.

If some materials are easy to agglomerate and sticky during the drying process. This related material can be considered to use our company's high efficiency vacuum dryer, conical paddle vacuum dryer, vacuum shelf dryer.

Conical Paddle Vacuum Dryer Description

The thermal energy of the HW series conical screw vacuum dryer needed for drying is introduced into the product through a heated jacket that can be heated by various media including steam, hot oil, and water. The jacket of the conical screw vacuum dryer provides rapid distribution of heat into the product in combination with efficient mixing.

The vacuum inside the conical screw vacuum dryers allows vapor to be removed at low temperatures, which makes the conical screw vacuum dryer ideal for drying heat-sensitive products. The vapors are removed through a dust filter fitted on top of the vessel. This then prevents the dust from penetrating into the vacuum system.

The conical paddle Vacuum drier is fitted with a condenser with a receptacle for recovering solvents. This condenser can be installed before the vacuum pump, or after it, depending on the characteristics of the solvents.

The moisture content of the product can be taken through samples from the product inside the dryer under a vacuum.

The conical screw vacuum dryer is designed for vacuum drying of solid-based materials but can be used in a wide range of other applications requiring thermal processing or vacuum treatment of solids, such as:

• Chemical reactions: alkalization, solid-gas reactions

• Crystallisation

• Cooling of solids and liquids

2.All specifications of conical screw vacuum dryers are as accurate as is reasonably possible, but they are not binding.

Heating Method of Conical Screw Vacuum Dryer

For the heating method of the conical screw vacuum dryer, it can use steam or hot water or heat transfer oil as a heat source. However, the above heat sources cannot be provided by the end user. Hywell machine can provide electric heating heat transfer oil furnace or electric heating hot water tank. Specific can be designed according to customers.

Condensation recovery unit of vacuum mixer dryer

If the material contains a large number of solvents such as methanol, ethanol, etc. The solvent of raw material can be collected by using a condenser. But the condenser of the vacuum mixer dryer recollected the solvent that needs the user to supply cooling water, If the solvent is water or a low proportion of solvents, the condenser of vacuum mixer dryer is not required in order to save investment cost.

Tube model condenser of vacuum mixer dryers

There are two types of vacuum mixer dryers condensers in Hywell company. One is the traditional tube condenser. This condenser is made of seamless steel pipes that are arranged inside the condenser cover. The outside of the tube is equipped with cooling fins to increase the condensation efficiency.

Hose wound tube condenser of vacuum mixer dryers

The other is a metal hose condenser. The condenser is undoubtedly a seamless metal hose wrapped inside the condenser. so the same heat exchange area, the outside size of the hose wound condenser is smaller than the tube condenser and the cost is also cheaper. now Hywell company almost use this kinds Hose wound tube condenser.

Vertical Conical screw vacuum dryer construction material

Hywell Machinery is able to offer our HW series vertical conical screw vacuum dryer with contact parts to be built in SS304, SS316L, Titanium, Duplex stainless steel, etc. Electrical parts of the control system of the vertical conical screw vacuum dryers can be adapted to the customer's needs.

How do the Conical Vacuum Dryer Works

The construction of the Hywell Machinery HW series vertical conical vacuum dryer is very compact: vertical conical vacuum dryers consists of a cone vessel with the drive unit on the top and discharge valve at the bottom, and a tapered ribbon mounted on the central shaft. In the cone vessel, there is a central tapered ribbon with a very small clearance between its edge and the wall, The ribbon moves the materials upward along the vessel wall to the top, where the materials then drop by gravity into the center. During this continuous operation, material particles and heat are exchanged quickly which leads to a homogeneous product. Besides, the material particles are mixed with minimal mechanical and thermal stress, which makes this type of mixer a good solution for fragile and heat-sensitive products.

Agitated Vacuum Dryer Advantages

Hywell machinery HW series agitated vacuum dryer had the following advantages over conventional solutions.

1. Agitated vacuum dryers have the multi-purpose and multi-processing

2. Agitated vacuum dryer have the efficient batch drying of loose powders to heavy filter cakes and viscous liquids

3. Agitated vacuum dryer is a compact design

4. The working process of the agitated vacuum screw dryer uses intermittent operation, after the wet materials enter into the stock bin, through the wall jacket to heat and dry the materials. transmission shaft heating is also available, which can heat more sufficiently.

5. Hywell company specially designed this equipment for processing the slurry materials, high viscosity and high-moisture material, meanwhile, the solvent from the material needs to recover.

6. High efficiency: The machine is set for drying, mixing, and distillation in one of the efficient multifunctional closed agitated vacuum dryers that complied with GMP requirements. its drying efficiency is as 3-5 times as the same specifications of another dryer.

7 . High mixing precision: It can reach high mixing uniformly, Even mixing of different densities and different particle shape material in the same batch of products, can achieve the required mixing precision in our machine. Even by adding very litter materials to a large number of materials, the machine can reach a perfect mixing uniformly.

8. Low shear strength stirring of the agitated vacuum dryer: It adopts a low shear strength stirrer, which can gently mix the materials with a low-speed rotary and energy consumption. the mixing strength and time are not much.

9. Sealed design of the agitated vacuum dryer: The machine is a total sealed design with all the connections including the loading and discharge nozzle fixed, which can fulfill the requirement of the materials and safe environment.

10. Energy saving of the agitated vacuum dryers: Compared with traditional drying equipment, for example, bipyramid vacuum drying machine, tray vacuum drying machine, hot air oven, and so on.

1). In the same condition of volume, charge materials can be increased more than one time.

2). In the same condition of energy consumption, it can be increased to two times to five times in drying production.

3). Drying time is less than one third of traditional drying machine such as the Rota cone vacuum dryer,  vacuum shelf dryer.
