DEVEX Drying Technology

Vacuum and Freeze Drying

The vacuum drying technology is one of the most economical and most gentle drying methods. Due to the vacuum very low water evaporation temperatures can be reached. Aroma, product color and bulk density can specifically be influenced by the process.
Vacuum Belt Dryers are used in the Pharmaceutical Industry, Food Industry and Chemical Industry.

DEVEX Vacuum Belt Dryers are designed for the continuous operation with liquid or solid products. The dried granulate is also quasi-continuously discharged and can be removed under cleanroom conditions (GMP). After the drying process, the product can be ground, filled and packaged.

DEVEX Process & Product Development is pleased to assist you with the drying process and the dryer design. In our company own test center with a pilot vacuum and freeze drying plant, we are able to do product development with and for you, doing trials with your desired material and parameters, and after that scale this processes up to tailor made production equipment. Send us an inquiry to get to know more of all the opportunities.
