Agitated Vacuum Pan Dryer

Turbodry® - series TD 0.8/1.1 - TD 40/60

The COMBER Turbodry® pan dryer has proven to be excellent for the drying of sensitive, pasty and other “difficult” products that pass through a highly viscous stage during the drying process. Excellent product discharge and shortest cycle times.

Designed for frequent product changes with excellent cleanability using CIP systems, simple validation. Suitable for use with microwaves for optimum drying performance. 

Ideally suited for the installation of isolator systems for contained discharge, sampling and heel removal.

Inerting

Prior to feeding slurry into the agitated Nutsche filter or filter dryer the vessel interior is inerted by a controlled displacement of the oxygen containing atmosphere with Nitrogen. This procedure prevents the potential formation of an explosive atmosphere in the vessel interior.

Technical data

Special properties for the customer’s benefit:

  • Using spray balls a cleaning fluid is sprayed onto all product wetted internal surfaces for the internal cleaning of the equipment in between individual batches or for product change over. This provides for full and efficient cleaning of the dryer interior.calculation, design and manufacture are in compliance with Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EG or/and ASME U-stamp as well as with cGMP and FDA guidelines

  • sampler valve
  • hydraulic pre-piping made of stainless steal, pre-wiring on terminal box made of stainless steal
  • integral CIP-systems

 

Options:

  • additional heating with microwaves to reduce the drying process
  • pressure-resistant and sterile versions, isolators (glove box), DQ, IQ, OQ qualification
