McGill AirPressure vacuum dryers are ideal for drying materials that would be damaged or changed if exposed to high temperature. The vacuum removes moisture while preventing the oxidation or explosions that can occur when certain materials combine with air. Vacuum drying is also ideal in situations where a solvent must be recovered or where materials must be dried to very low levels of moisture. McGill AirPressure vacuum dryers are indirect-heated, batch-type dryers for heat sensitive solids. They remove moisture by exposing the solids to reduced pressure. Just enough heat is used to replace that lost through vaporization.
McGill AirPressure offers the following dryer types:
Shelf Dryers--are designed for drying materials that must not be agitated or that are processed in small batches.
Rotary Dryers--are used in applications involving materials that can be agitated. Ribbons or paddles move material from one end to the other during operation, constantly exposing the batch to a heated shell and shaft.
Conical Dryers--are designed to dry free-flowing material for which attrition or size reduction can be a problem.
Parts Dryers--are manufactured for use with aqueous-based cleaning systems....are especially useful for efficient drying of heat-sensitive parts and parts with small passages and blind holes. They provide complete drying of the surface and internal area.
