thin Film dryer


The thin-film dryer is a special type of thin-film evaporator. There are two types of thin-film dryers, the vertical and the horizontal dryer.

If these systems reach their limits when it comes to heat-sensitive products, the successful thin-film evaporator principle ensures gentle processes. Based on their wealth of experience and knowledge from separation technology, our experts realize high-performance vertical and horizontal thin-film dryers, which convince both economically and process technically. For individual results, tailored and not available on the market, our technical center provides the ideal R & D environment to cover in-depth tests, etc.


applications of thin-film dryer

The thin-film dryer is used primarily in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries.

Dried products like:

  • Chemical products (pre- and intermediates)
  • Sludges (process sludges, industrial sludges and municipal sludges)
  • suspensions
  • pastes
  • moist solids
  • Saline solutions
  • Products of the fatty acid industry, etc.


advantages of thin-film dryer

  • Minimal value product loss
  • Product protection and purity
  • Gentle evaporation through short residence times and permanent product circulation
  • No deposits on the heating surfaces due to mechanical cleaning
  • Reduced maintenance due to sophisticated construction in the bearing and mechanical seal area
