The principle of vacuum drying
Many products are particularly temperature-sensitive due to their special properties. Drying at high temperatures would impair the original properties of the product and is therefore unsuitable. Vacuum drying allows moisture and solvents to evaporate at low temperatures without affecting the product.
In industrial cleaning technology, the requirements for dryness of the product are extremely high. Here we rely on the vacuum drying process. Particularly in the case of components with complex interiors, the requirements can usually only be met with drying under vacuum.
As drying requirements differ greatly, our vacuum dryers are generally specially designed to meet your requirements. We have previously implemented a large number of vacuum drying systems, which means we can draw on standardised components and solutions, enabling attractive pricing.
Our dryers can also be easily retrofitted in existing production lines, or be operated as stand-alone solutions with their own PLC controller.
Possible designs and components of a Meier vacuum dryer:
We offer concepts in a round or rectangular design, and as open-top, front-loading, tunnel or special systems.
- Heating systems for alternating drying
- Central vacuum pump stations
- Feed systems
- Visualisation and documentation
- Explosionprotection (ATEX) with in-house expertise
- Vacuum-sealed feedthroughs for rotation of goods racks
- Air ducts for even heat treatment
- Clean-room technology
- Preparation for exhaust air ducts
- System evaluation, relocation, retrofitting
Advantages of a vacuum dryer
Vacuum drying offers some decisive advantages over other types of drying:
- Reduced energy/operating costs
- Short cycle/drying times
- Drying process that protects materials
- Drying independent of geometry
- Maximum level of drying and quality
- Corrosion problems ruled out
- Low maintenance required
