Vacuum drying

Vacuum drying is a batch operation performed in an air-tight vessel.

Using vacuum pumps, the pressure and humidity within the chamber are reduced. By lowering the atmospheric pressure within the chamber, the materials inside dry more quickly and at lower temperatures than in other types of industrial dryers. Because the temperatures are lower, vacuum drying is especially well-suited for drying heat-sensitive materials.

amixon® vacuum dryer models AMT and VMT dry their contents through contact with the indirectly heated walls. In this sense, vacuum drying is essentially contact drying in a vacuum.
