AGITATED THIN FILM DRYER


Slurry, Cake, Distillate and Powder

An Agitated Thin Film Dryer (ATFD) has a centrally located rotor having closely fitting blades. It rotates in a precision-machined jacketed shell.
The feed is converted into a thin film, which is intensely agitated due to action of the high-speed rotor. The feed material goes through phases of slurry, paste and wet powder, before coming out as a dry powder.
We offer vertical, horizontal or combination dryers to take feed in solution, slurry, paste or wet powder form.
