IKA Vacuum Dryers & Mixers
Innovative Technology for Mixing & Drying of Bulk Materials
The innovative IKA Conical Mixer and Dryer range offers a gentle and efficient method of mixing and drying free flowing solids, including products with different bulk densities. The unique lid mounted spiral agitator and tilting option make the system more efficient when compared with standard stationary mixing systems.
Efficient mixing and drying from
10 to 4,000 litres
Major benefits are offered for the two systems:
Conical Mixer (CM) features:
- Low construction height
- Adjustable stirrer speed
- Improved mixing due to tilting of entire vessel
- Integrated clean in place available
Conical Dryer (CD) features:
- Shorter drying times via heatable agitator & double jacket vessel
- Operating temperatures from -10 to 200˚
- Gentle mixing for sensitive products
- Explosion proof and GMP versions available
Our Vacuum Dryers & Mixers
The new IKA Conical Mixer serves for mixing of free flowing solids, whereas the Conical Dryer has been designed for vacuum contact drying of different solvent humid solids. Both can be used to process products with different bulk densities and particle sizes. The Conical Mixer drying vessel guarantees a complete product discharge and can be easily thoroughly cleaned.
The IKA Conical Dryer vessel and cover are equipped with a double jacket for heating. This jacket ensures optimum energy input, uniform humidity and temperature distribution throughout the whole product area. The product is intensively mixed by a special spiral agitator, which – in case of the dryer – can also be heated. Resulting solvent vapours are extracted by a reversible flow dust filter. The conical mixer as well as the conical dryer are available with optional cover tilting device and vessel slewing mechanism. The inclination of the working vessel offers important advantages in mixing of the complete product.
