Planex System from Italvacuum is a horizontal paddle vacuum dryer with eccentric agitator featuring two independent movements, allowing it to simultaneously revolve around its own axis and to rotate tangentially to the drying chamber. Designed to dry wet feed from filtration and centrifuging processes Planex System is ideal for the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients, fine chemicals and intermediates.
The combined rotations of the agitator and its small size compared to the drying chamber diameter, ensures the perfect mixing of the entire batch, and allows consuming at least three times less energy than conventional dryers with a concentric agitator. This means a threefold reduction in mechanical and thermal stresses on the batch being dried. As a result, even the most delicate and temperature-sensitive products are treated with maximum care.
The system is available with total volumes ranging from 150 to 3200 l. Maximum loading capacity depends on the product to be processed, and can vary from 15 to 80 % of the chamber volume.
Planex System is designed and manufactured in compliance with European Union Atex Directives and CE marking requirements, as well as with the increasingly stringent US FDA standards and cGMP Current Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations.
