Nutsche filters and vacuum dryers for toxic or hazardous chemicals
BACHILLER equipment works optimally in the most severe, toxic or hazardous applications, where absolutely no leakage or degradation can be accepted.
The company’s Nutsche filters and vacuum dryers can be made in a wide range of materials, including austenitic and super-austenitic steel, duplex and super duplex, Hastelloy and all grade of nickel alloys, and all Titanium grades. This allows BACHILLER to deliver the best solution possible to the process requested.
Agitated Nutsche filters for the chemical and fine chemical industries
For the chemical, fine chemical, pharmaceutical and mining industries, the Nutsche Filter (FNB) and Nutsche Filter Dryer (FNB-S) by Bachiller are high-quality pieces of equipment designed for solid-liquid separation processes by filtration under pressure.
The Nutsche Filter Dryer enables the operator to dry the filter cake without product transfer to other equipment. It is ideal for processes that are best treated in hermetic equipment due to the hazardous or toxic characteristics of the product or simply to prevent cross-contamination.
Vertical ribbon vacuum dryer with maximised heating surface
The Supramix-S (MVC-S) is a vertical ribbon vacuum dryer with a maximised heating surface for the drying of all types of thermo-sensitive, crystalline, amorphous or paste products with a total vacuum.
The Supramix-S ribbon vacuum dryer comprises a heated vertical mixing spiral. It rotates at a moderate speed to achieve an upward flow of perimeter product and a constant renewal of the product in contact with the heated walls.
Horizontal vacuum paddle dryer and reactor with high torque and turbulence
The Turbodry (MHT-RS) is a horizontal vacuum paddle dryer and reactor designed for products with pseudo-plastic behaviour during the reaction and/or drying phase, where the product needs to be agitated with high torque and turbulence.
Using a fully heated body and shaft to maximise thermal exchange and paddles rotating at high speeds near the wall, the Turbodry vacuum paddle dryer reactor creates high turbulence in the product and continuous renewal in direct thermal exchange with the wall to enhance the drying process.
Double cone vacuum dryer for thermo-sensitive products
Ideal for drying all types of moist, crystalline and amorphous thermo-sensitive products, BACHILLER’s Bicuum is a double cone rotary vacuum dryer for ultra-vacuum drying.
Consisting of a fully heated and insulated drum, the Bicuum dryer rotates at low speeds while being subjected to a strong vacuum, using gentle product movement to continuously renew the product against the hot walls.
Horizontal vacuum paddle dryer for products with pseudo-plastic behaviour
The Paddledry (MHT-S) is a high efficiency dryer, specially designed for products with pseudo-plastic behaviour and high torque requirements during the drying process.
The Paddledry vacuum dryer operates through a body, shaft and blades, which are fully heated to maximise heat exchange. The blades rotate very closely to the wall and at low speeds for continuous renewal of the product in direct exchange with the wall.
Vertical conical screw vacuum dryer
The Conical (MCV-S) vertical conical screw vacuum dryer has a sanitary design, with a maximised heating surface for the drying of all kinds of moist thermo-sensitive, crystalline, amorphous or paste products.
The Conical comprises a fully conical vertical vessel with a vertical screw mixing system, creating a gentle mechanical treatment for the product and ensuring a highly reliable unloading capacity.
International certifications and quality assurance
BACHILLER designs and manufactures its solutions in-house, as well as oversees the entire manufacturing process, from the calculation and design, steel construction and welding procedures, machining, polishing, explosion and inflammability proof, high-pressure proof, vacuum tightness, up to the factory acceptance test (FAT) and installation qualification (IQ) protocols performance.
The company is also able to provide on-site service from assembly supervision to start-up and training, going through commissioning, SAT performance, training on equipment and process performance operations.
BACHILLER has the quality certifications ISO 9001: 2008, U and U2 seal of ASME, HP0 certificate according to AD-2000 Merkblätt, Module H1, according to PED and A2 licence according to SQL of the People’s Republic of China.
All BACHILLER equipment can also be supplied with official explosive atmosphere (ATEX) certification for category 1 (0/20 zone).
