Short path - or molecular - distillation allows the evaporation of heat sensitive products at operating pressures down to 0,001 mbar at short residence times. On a cylindrical heating jacket the product is distributed and turbulized by a wiping system. The evaporated fraction is condensed on a condenser installed in the center of the evaporator. This arrangement minimizes the path from evaporation to condensing surface and achieves the lowest possible pressure drop. The high vacuum and the short residence time avoids thermal stress and decomposition of the processed products.
VTA delivers package units in laboratory, pilot and industrial scale. Package units are skid mounted, pre-assembled systems for wiped film
and short path distillation, rectification and thin film drying.
All core components, like evaporators, condensers, vessels and piping, are manufactured in modern manufacturing facilities by highly qualified
workers either by VTA or within the STREICHER group.
All engineering services are performed entirely inhouse at VTA. By minimizing the interfaces, a smooth project execution is ensured.
