Chemicals and all other medicinal products have to be dried before they are sold to patients or prior to reaching the marketplace. Usually, these products become wet because of the solvents used during its manufacture. Typically, these solvents can be removed using either a dynamic dryer or a heatable static. Vacuum drying has also become popular in the process. This is advantageous since the products are processed using low temperature. The temperature must always correspond to the solvent’s vapor pressure though. At Airtech Vacuum Incorporated, we have special vacuum pumps that can be installed in drying systems.
About the Drying Industry
Vacuum drying is a process where moisture is removed from a substance by creating vacuum. It is a relevant process in a lot of chemical process industries including paper and pulp, textile, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and food. In all of these industries, removing moisture from a substance is very crucial in making sure that high quality products are produced.
Vacuum drying creates vacuum to be able to remove moisture in these products by decreasing the pressure at a rate lower than water’s vapor pressure. Vacuum pumps are used in the process in order to reduce pressure around the substance that needs drying. These technologies can significantly increase evaporation while boiling point of water is reduced. The process is considered as a batch operation system and is applicable for use to chemical industries and applications mentioned herein. It can be used to dry hydroscopic as well as toxic materials. It can also be used in any application where dryers cannot handle the batch of components that need drying.
