Drying is an operation to remove moisture from wet materials by forced evaporation using heat. Hosokawa Micron has developed an advanced portfolio of innovative processing technologies and equipment for drying and cooling a range of granules, powders, pastes and slurries.
Hosokawa Micron’s batch and continuous dryer ranges are widely used in applications within the food, chemical, mineral and pharmaceutical industries. The Vrieco Nauta® range of vacuum dryers in particular has the ability to both mix and dry in one unit offering production benefits that include eliminating the need for product handling and interim storage equipment, reducing downtime for cleaning and minimising product losses.
The selection of the right drying process and dryer design depends on the nature of the materials to be handled here our extensive processing know-how can help ensure customers select the right equipment for the job; whether that be for the production of a few kilos or multi tonne lots.
