Paul O. Abbe Rota-Cone Vacuum DryerRota-Cone™ Vacuum Dryers provide an efficient and economical method of drying solids. The slow tumbling action of the double-cone is gentle on friable solids. Vacuum drying lowers the evaporation temperature of liquids which improves heat while protecting temperature sensitive products. The clean internal design provides complete product discharge and easy cleanout. Working capacities range from 0.1 ft3 to 400 ft3. Complete systems are available including vacuum pump, vapor condensers and solvent recovery, heating packages, solids samplers, lump breakers, liquid addition, automatic loading and unloading and PLC controls.
