Vacuum Drying

Vacuum Drying is the process of removing water from either a solution or slurry under vacuum to produce a solid. Because the process takes place under vacuum conditions the temperature required to remove the water is well below 100°C (the normal boiling point of water) and so many heat sensitive materials can be concentrated and a solid produced using this technique. At Lancashire Chemicals, we have 3 commercial scale Vacuum Driers available and these are backed up by a pilot plant facility where we can run customer trials to see if this is the right method for your product.
