Vacuum drying is the most efficient drying method for most pharmaceutical and chemical products. Drying occurs using the appropriate combination of vacuum and temperature that generates evaporation of the sol- vent contained in the cake that is being dried. Agitation ensures the homogenous mixing of the end product, improves the heat exchange factor and, as a final result, reduces drying time.
Cogeim offers a wide range of vacuum dryers, all pro- vided with agitator and each using conduction as the heat transfer method. An optional heated agitator is available to improve drying performance.
