Powder Show Booth 2706 - Italvacuum introduces the Planex System, a multi-patented paddle vacuum dryer with a unique drying philosophy.
The Planex system consists of a fixed cylindrical chamber with an eccentric agitator with two independent movements, able to rotate on its own axis and tangentially to the chamber. The double combined rotation allows an optimal mixing of the product, continuously renewing the surface of the mass exposed to evaporation.
According to the analysis carried out by the Chemical and Material Sciences Department at Polytechnic University of Turin, the mechanical and thermal stress on the product is three times lower than that observed in traditional paddle dryers. This prevents local overheating due to friction, enabling the drying of temperature-sensitive products, and the reduction of electricity consumption.
For these reasons, the Planex system is particularly suitable for the treatment of wet or damp pharmaceutical and fine chemical powders, even at low temperatures.
The Planex system is available with product contact surfaces in stainless steel types 316L, 304, 904L, and Alloy C-22.
