Thin film dryers are able to continuously dry pasty or slurried, crystallizing or amorphous products. As contact dryers the heat is transferred from the cylindrical heating jacket into the product, while a rotor with special wiping elements is increasing the heat and mass transfer to finally achieve the dried and fluidized solid. Due to the turbulence created, larger capacities are achievable at shorter residence times than in common drying systems. Depending on the drying task and the consistency of the product treated in the thin film dryer, vertical and horizontal arrangements are selected.
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.
