Drying High Value Liquid Products
Problem: Producing free flowing powders with little or no
moisture from liquid or slurry feed products.
Solution: Artisan’s mechanically agitated thin film processors are
widely used to produce free flowing powders from a variety of heat
sensitive products. Rapid heat transfer, plug flow, and extremely short
residence time make them the most versatile “single step” processors
in the industry.
Example: Drying a heat sensitive “photographic dye” by
evaporating the solvent from a 2% solution at reduced pressure. Preconcentration in a rising film evaporator optimizes the size of the Rototherm®. A rectifying column, using the Artisan proprietary DUALFLO® Distillation trays, controls solids entrainment.
