EKATO SOLIDMIX


One third faster or smaller - considering the advantages of efficient drying by making use of the fully heated agitators now available from EKATO


THE CHALLENGES FOR VERTICAL EKATO SOLIDMIX TECHNOLOGY BEGIN WITH PROCESSES WHERE SPRAY dryers and horizontal dryers are limited in their capabilities. With the new development of fully heated agitators from EKATO, the process times achieved so far with vertical process can be reduced by up to 60 percent. Alternative drying processes are, as a result, clearly surpassed in terms of yield, product quality, cleaning and process time. The vacuum greatly reduces the boiling points of


the solvents. By setting and controlling the process parameters - vacuum, temperature, agitator speed and time, very low solvent residues of a few ppm are able to be achieved. The maximisation of the heat input into the product is mainly ensured by the geometry of the EKATO SOLIDMIX PARAVISC for free-flowing solids and the EKATO ISOPAS agitator with baffle for liquid initial conditions, kneading phase and powder forms.


A small wall distance and clearance angle of the agitator blades to the vessel wall prevent the build-up of insulating wall layers during drying. Regardless of the vessel size, the solid particles are completely circulated once in less than 40 seconds. The shortest mixing times and a maximum temperature difference ∆T between the solid particles and the temperature of the heating jacket are ensured.


The heat exchange surface of the vessel is optimal due to the vessel geometry with cone and cylindrical part. The geometric similarity of EKATO products ensures a constant mixing quality from the smallest vessel sizes of 3 l on a laboratory scale up to the largest production machines with more than 32,000 l effective volume. The fully tempered agitators increase the heat exchange surface by 25-33 percent. Due to the additional heat exchange surface of the agitator, heating, cooling and drying times can theoretically be reduced by the same percentage. Verification tests showed process time reductions of up to 59 percent depending on the drying phase and product: By moving the heated agitators through the product, the heat transfer can also be significantly increased.
