2.000L Horizontal Vacuum Paddle Dryer for API production

Delivering a new 2.000L Sanidry, a horizontal vacuum paddle dryer with sanitary design, to an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients and Fine Chemicals manufacturer in Germany.

The Sanidry vacuum dryer by Bachiller is the ideal industrial dryer to meet customer needs since the products to dry are highly toxic substances. Hygienic equipment is required to comply with GMP standards and ensure operator safety.

The Sanidry, horizontal vacuum paddle dryer, belongs to the group of drum dryers with paddle rotation in their interior. Its sanitary design, with a heating surface maximised in paddles over the shaft and body of the dryer, guarantees the drying of all types of moist, crystalline, amorphous or paste thermo-sensitive products in a vacuum process.

The body, shaft and paddles of the vacuum dryer are fully heated to maximise heat exchange. The tolerances of the vacuum dryer assembly allow the turning of the paddles at very close distances to the wall, for continuous renewal of the product being exchanged.

Successful FAT of two 1,000L Double Cone vacuum dryer

1,000L Double Cone vacuum dryer

This process equipment has been designed and manufactured by Bachiller for our customer, a Portuguese fine chemicals company. The installation is composed of 2 Bicuum (double cone vacuum dryers) of 1,000L each, 1 hydrogenator, 2 vacuum skids and 3 heating skids.

During the tests, we were able to verify the efficiency and effectiveness of the equipment, which is now ready to be delivered.

THE EQUIPMENT
The Bicuum by Bachiller is a double-cone rotary drum vacuum dryer, suitable for ultra-vacuum drying of all types of moist, crystalline and amorphous thermo-sensitive products.

The Bicuum vacuum dryer consists of a fully heated and insulated drum, which rotates at low speeds while being subjected to a strong vacuum, which continuously renews the product in contact with the hot walls.

Advantages:

  • Mechanical simplicity, low maintenance required.
  • Full tightness.
  • The very low weight of the product – power consumption ratio.
  • Easy to clean and inspect.
  • Repetitive, reproducible and easy to scale processes.
