FilDry is a laboratory device for the investigation of filtration and drying processes for the chemical process development and scale-up or scale-down.
FilDry is a filter and paddle dryer based on SYSTAG automated laboratory equipment. Apart of the straightforward temperature- and vacuum control all other basic operations like filtration, washing, re-slurrying and drying optimisation are built into this new and revolutionary filter dryer.
The configuration with customised reactor design makes the filtration and drying optimisation simple and easy. FilDry is a discontinuous liquid / solid separator with built in vacuum dryer, also under vacuum and at different temperatures. Tracking of filtration speed and drying process is given by the built in weighing system for mother liquid or recondensed solvents. Dual propose agitator with lift automatic enables an efficient re-slurrying and proper cake washing whereby the stirrer positioning is used for a smooth wipe off of the solids to prevent any cracking of the filter cake.
The high degree of functionality and the added customised options allow this concept to meet the different demands in filtration or down-scaling of a wide range of applications.
