Vacuum Dryer Revolutionary Vacuum Drying Concept Receives Innovation Award
Drying is a special art, which has to meet increasingly severe requirements. Now Italvacuum was able to convince with its Planex System at Dry Trophy Innovation Award 2016.
Italvacuum's Planex System is a paddle 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. The combined rotations of the agitator and its small size ensures perfect mixing and allows consuming at least three times less energy than conventional paddle dryers. This means a threefold reduction in mechanical and thermal stresses on the dried batch.
Now the multi-patented machine has won the Dry Trophy Innovation Award 2016. This award is organized by NWGD (Dutch Working Group on Drying) and sponsored by the Dutch government, which promotes drying innovation.
