Drying Explosive Or Highly Flammable Organics

Problem: Continuous dewatering of organic peroxides or other
highly flammable organics.

Solution: Artisan’s patented falling film disc and tube Evaporator/
Strippers™ are utilized to dry organic peroxides used as curing agents in polyester and vinyl chloride polymerization. Low holdup volume and “no crevice” design make it the safest method for continuous drying of these highly explosive or flammable organics.

Example: Drying methyl ethyl ketone peroxide from 5000 PPM to less than 200 PPM, by countercurrent stripping, using argon asstripping media.
