A new generation of stirring vacuum dryer single cone vacuum dryer performance characteristics
The functions and characteristics of Wuxi ZhangHua vacuum single-cone dryer and the factors that should be considered in the selection of drying equipment from the production of raw materials have confirmed its rationality and efficiency. The new generation of vacuum single-cone dryer is used in the production of multiple products in pharmaceutical intermediates, pesticides, fine chemicals, battery materials, hard alloys and other industries. It can meet the requirements of the design indicators and also confirms that the single-cone dryer has its leading technology. sex.
(1) The bottom spherical cut-off vacuum airtight feeding valve
Wuxi ZhangHua Vacuum Single Cone Dryer realizes the automatic unloading process through the eccentric hemispherical valve. The spherical surface processing for the cut-off is very precise, and the elastic material vacuum chamber acting on the cut-off spherical surface can realize the process environment from -1Bar to 6Bar.
During this period, the material flows downward along the discharge channel under the action of gravity, and the lower part of the discharge valve can use different containers or connecting pipelines to transfer materials.
Compared with the bottom and side discharge structure of other drying equipment, the bottom discharge structure of the new generation of vacuum single cone dryer can avoid:
① It is difficult to achieve complete discharge and there are residual materials;
② Long discharge time;
③ The labor intensity of operators is high.
It can be seen that the vacuum single-cone dryer realizes automatic discharge, and it can realize the closed process in the process of powder drying and mixing, so as to achieve the purpose of fully closed treatment of materials, which conforms to the relevant provisions of GMP in the production of raw materials.
(2) Stable operation and protection of crystal form
The single-cone vacuum dryer does not have any auxiliary tools in the drying and mixing process. The specially designed stirring ribbon ensures that the liquid-liquid, liquid-solid or gas-liquid materials in the inner cavity are fully stirred, so as to ensure that they are fully mixed. , which makes the material not subject to any external extrusion except for the lifting from the stirring screw, which avoids the ineffective friction between the powder and the equipment and the powder grains. Ineffective friction in other equipment often causes the crystal form of the material to be destroyed, which is the fundamental reason why Wuxi ZhangHua Vacuum Single Cone Dryer can keep the crystal form of the material intact during the operation.
(3) Top drive avoids possible shaft seal and product contamination
Wuxi ZhangHua Single Cone Vacuum Dryer adopts top drive, which can avoid the following phenomena compared with other bottom drive structures:
① The stirring paddle must be disassembled by special equipment for cleaning and maintenance;
② It is difficult to obtain practical and reliable protection for the shaft seal of the stirring paddle;
③ It is difficult to ensure GMP verification for the residual product at the seal of the stirring impeller.
According to the needs of users, Wuxi ZhangHua Vacuum Single Cone Dryer can be designed as a gas-tight type. Before drying, the single cone dryer is pre-filled with nitrogen, protected by nitrogen, and maintains a positive pressure (20-30mbar) outside during the whole process. Ensure that the particles in the external environment will not enter the conical dry mixer, and at the same time achieve the purpose of safety and explosion protection.
(4) Low operating energy cost and high mixing efficiency
① Wuxi ZhangHua Vacuum Single Cone Dryer is driven by a motor, with a unique design innovation. The screw driven by the motor is used to lift the material, and there is no energy consumption for feeding alone. It is particularly worth mentioning that during the mixing and drying process, when the stirring paddle moves, the moving material moves in a circle around the axis of the conical silo.
In order to ensure that the materials in different parts of the entire container can be stirred, the spiral movement of the rotation lifts the bottom materials to the upper part of the container and then falls in natural circulation. This stirring mode not only makes the materials in the container evenly mixed, but also avoids drying of the materials. The possibility of agglomeration during the process, so as to achieve the final mixing and improve the drying efficiency.
② Vacuum single-cone dryer has a wide range of processing capacity. Compared with the processing capacity, the energy consumption of the whole process is very low.
The cylinder wall of the single cone dryer can use heat media such as hot water or steam to heat the materials. At the same time, the whole system is designed for vacuum, which can achieve the purpose of drying heat-sensitive materials at a lower temperature.
The interior of the conical spiral can be designed with a hollow channel for drying and heat supplementation.
(5) Simple operation and convenient maintenance
The mechanical structure of the single-cone dryer is simple and effective, and the operator is easy to understand. The simple button control makes the operation process very convenient; some maintenance work can be completed smoothly and quickly even without professionals, and the manhole can be easily used. Easy to adjust and maintain the moving screw without complicated disassembly. In addition, the wearing parts of the single cone dryer are very few, and the drive unit such as the bearing box is set on the top of the silo. The principle of this design makes it easy for the user to detach the entire drive unit during maintenance. Relatively speaking, the drive unit on the top The location space is also relatively abundant.
(6) Through layer design, integrated centrifuge work online
Wuxi ZhangHua Vacuum Single Cone Dryer has precise processing and stable operation, which makes the running noise very small. Considering the integration and integration of on-site installation, the conical dry mixer can be conveniently connected to the discharge port of the bag-type centrifuge, so as to realize the solid-liquid separation in the production of raw materials and the dry mixing of the final product. If the output of the single cone dryer is directly connected to the dryer or fully enclosed powder conveying equipment, it can ensure that the entire process is completely completed in a fully enclosed environment.
(7) CIP (automatic cleaning) and SIP (sterilization in place)
The vacuum single-cone dryer does not need to open the process silo, and can directly use the CIP and SIP functions of the equipment to conveniently clear the equipment. A cone-shaped drying mixer can handle many kinds of materials, so that it can complete the powder drying and mixing of many kinds of materials without adding equipment, which greatly saves the investment in production equipment.
