The Rototherm Mini utilizes the same thin-film separation technology as Artisan’s production-scale Rototherm evaporators. It is designed for continuous evaporation and liquid-to-powder drying of heat-sensitive materials.
Unlike vertical evaporators, the Rototherm Mini has a horizontal orientation that provides researchers complete control over residence time. This allows for liquid-to-powder drying in a single pass and improved product yield.
The Rototherm Mini features a high-speed rotor that utilizes centrifugal force to create an agitated thin-film. This design provides improvements over traditional wiped-film evaporators (WFE). It is capable of processing viscous or foaming liquids and slurries. In addition, the stainless steel, fixed-clearance rotor provides easier cleaning.
The Rototherm Mini provides researchers the ability to develop continuous processes at lab-scale that can be scaled-up for production.
Additional product specifications include:
5-50 ml/min feed rate
Maximum operating temperature 450°F
Operating pressure - full vacuum to 15 psi
316 stainless steel construction
Easy to clean
