VACUUM DRYING OVENS

Applications

  • Drying combustible substances and powders
  • Drying of temperature sensitive resins, solvents, powders and chemicals
  • Separation of hydrocarbons
  • Material durability and age testing
  • PET analysis, nano compounds
  • Low temperature drying of electronic boards

Overview

VACUCELL® vacuum drying ovens are equipped with a direct heated chamber that transfers heat via patented Servotherm shelves. Temperature sensitive, easily decomposable, or oxidative materials can be carefully dried under vacuum. The unit also offers the ability to evacuate air with an inert gas. VACUCELL® ovens are ideal for drying off solvents from chemicals and powders, as well as components with hard to access spaces and contours. The VACUCELL® is designed to interface with a central vacuum source or can be equipped with BMT USA Vacustation vacuum pump for a complete standalone system.

Chamber Sizes & Construction

SERVOTherm Direct Heat Transfer System

VACUCELL® ovens are equipped with the patented Servotherm direct heat transfer system, which heats the entire inner chamber via powerful heating elements fixed to the exterior of the chamber. Heat is conducted from the chamber to the  shelving brackets and precisely milled aluminum shelves. Heat is then passed from the shelves to the load for quick, safe, and effective drying of media and solvents.

VACUCELL Chamber Sizes

  • 22 (0.8 ft³)
  • 55 (2 ft³)
  • 111 (4 ft³)

Chamber Construction

VACUCELL® ovens are equipped with a pharmaceutical grade AISI 304 stainless steel pressure resistant chamber. The inner chamber features two Servotherm shelves for quick, safe, and effective heat transfer to the load. The door of the chamber is designed with 2cm thick Ventiflex spring-mounted glass for viewing of the contents inside the chamber and to allow gas and pressure to escape in the unlikely event of over-pressure inside the oven. The door also features a smart door handle with a 4-point closing system that seals the door to the chamber gasket.

  • AISI 304 stainless steel pressure resistant inner chamber –VACUCELL® EVO standard equipped with 316 AISI stainless steel
  • Shelving brackets of the VACUCELL® EVO’s 316 AISI stainless steel chamber are removable, allowing for easier cleaning and sterilization of the entire chamber.
  • (2) aluminum shelves included – optional upgrade to stainless steel shelves available
  • 4-point closing system that seals the door to the chamber gasket – automatic or key door lock options availabe, door sensor and alarm option available
  • 2cm thick Ventiflex glass is mounted on the body of the chamber door by four guide rails and springs. In the unlikely event of over-pressure in the chamber, the springs will release the glass panel from its normally sealed position, allowing gas in the chamber to escape to atmosphere and relieve pressure, preventing a possible explosion
  • Door window installed in both the vacuum chamber and the optional Vacustation
  • Integrated stainless steel 40 mm duct for sensors

Control Panel

VACUCELL® vacuum drying ovens are offered with ECO and EVO control system options, each equipped with varying features to match your specific use case and budget. Through the use of fuzzy logic, the controllers can assess process data, such as operating temperature, chamber size, and other controlled elements. Based on the assessed data, the controller can make continuous adjustments to input values, such as heating intensity or cooling, to optimally regulate internal chamber conditions. Additionally, the controllers can quickly ramp up to the exact temperature set point without overshooting, minimizing the time required to meet set process parameters. The result is reduced overall cycle time, power consumption, and recovery times after opening the chamber door(s).

Vacustation Vacuum Pump

Vacustation vacuum pumps directly integrate with the VACUCELL® ECO and EVO models for a complete standalone system. The vacuum pump is chemical resistant and includes an inlet separator for protection from liquids and large particulates. Vacustation vacuum pumps also includes an exhaust condenser and is available in two capacity options:
  • 2m3/h, 7mba
  • 3.4m3/h, 1.5mba
