Vacuum Drying Oven
Vacuum drying oven, also referred as vacuum dryer or vacuum oven, is used for performing drying operations which generally comprise of removal of moisture from materials. In the medical industry, vacuum drying is used to speed up the water removal process from thick latex catheters. In the food industry, it is a valuable technology to convert the waste food into fertilizers. In the electronics industry, a special heating process is used to dry electronic chips. Meanwhile in the automotive industry, vacuum vaporizer is used at oil separation of cleaning or washing processing.
The working principle behind the operation of a vacuum drying oven involves substantially lowering the ambient pressure to decrease the boiling point of the liquid in the substance via the use of a vacuum pump. A considerable reduction in boiling point increases the rate of evaporation of the liquid and hence fastens the drying rate of the substance. Moreover, lowering the boiling point indicates that operating temperatures could be much lower as compared to regular air oven. Hence, heat sensitive substances could be dried with minimal effect to their physical or chemical properties. Additionally, lack of air (or oxygen) during the drying process significantly reduces the chances of substance oxidation.
At GSE, we develop a wide range of engineering equipment essential for smooth operation of industries. GSE vacuum dryer, a batch type oven, is built with the state-of-the-art technology to enhance the versatility and flexibility of use. The working pressure of our vacuum dryer ranges from 10,000 Pa to as low as ~100 Pa. Also, we provide flexibility in the heating medium, with electric, steam or hot water, depending on the industry requirements. Additionally, the operating temperatures have a broad range from 50 to 190 °C, depending on the type of the product.
GSE vacuum dryers are manufactured with an extraordinary precision to ensure highest industrial safety standards and accuracy of operating conditions. An extensive experience in development of best in class industrial equipment has made GSE one of the leading providers of vacuum drying oven in Malaysia.
