Conical Central Shaft Dryer

Condry® - series TDC 25 - TDC 15000

The COMBER Condry® conical bottom agitated vacuum dryer was developed to process a wide variety of products. The machines have proven to be particularly suited for the drying of heat sensitive products and product with fragile crystal structure and thus sensitive to shear forces.

The conical bottom allows for full product discharge characteristics. Designed for frequent product changes with excellent cleanability using CIP systems, simple validation. 

The conical vessel bottom, narrow agitator to wall clearances, a special agitator blade design and the option for microwave heating makes this dryer the most versatile and efficient with a the best possible drying performance.
