Principle of Operation
Artisans’ Rototherm® allows for up to 99% evaporation in a single pass and can concentrate dilute solutions to powder. Dry spots are eliminated because the process wall, unaffected by gravity, remains fully wetted at all evaporation rates.
When used as a continuous reactor, Rototherm®’s multiple feed points and temperature zones, controlled residence time, and simultaneous evaporation of reaction by-products provide total flexibility for complex reactions. Rototherm®’s short residence times allow reactions to be run at higher temperatures than conventional reactors, increasing the rate of reaction without compromising product quality and yield.
Rototherm® E: Designed to concentrate a liquid feed material to a flowable liquid or slurry
Rototherm® P: Designed to dry a liquid feed material to a free-flowing solid or powder
Rototherm® D: Designed for slow-speed, diffusion-limited post vacuum drying of a free-flowing solid material (this product is still in development)
Protherm: A special laboratory/pilot scale version of the Rototherm® E, designed as a continuous alternative to glass rotary evaporators
