|Vacuum drying cabinets serve for basic drying of temperature-sensitive concentrates and pasty mixtures of solid substances as well as granulates.
The properties of the dry product depend on the quantity of liquid they contain and the operating parameters which can be set on the equipment.
The desired requirements can be controlled and adapted to the greatest extent with the drying process.
In comparison to other types of driers, vacuum drying cabinets offer optimum possibilities for influencing the drying characteristics.
The following parameters can be optimized on Merk vacuum drying cabinets:
- Temperature and consistency of product to be dried
- Charging quantity
- Foaming of product when starting up
- Cake formation
- Vacuum and temperature curve
