PROCEPT Lab Filter Dryer
For early stage filtration and drying kinetic studies of API / NCE, scale up and process validation. Nutsche filter for filter cakes between diameter 8-20 cm.
The lab filter dryer has a variable speed impeller with telescopic movement, turning clock-wise and anti-clockwise
Fully integrated and automated lab filter dryer. Various filter meshes available 5 & 20 micron.
The PROCEPT Lab Filter Dryer
includes a vacuum system, jacketed dust filter, glass condenser, condenser receiver vessel, bypass, vacuum pump and process pressure control.
All critical process data can be recorded: impeller torque, compression force on cake, product temperature, impeller rpm and direction, pressure over filter cake, process pressure, mass recovered liquid, product temperature, process vessel/condenser/filter jacket temperature.
A touch screen Windows based PC automation package: “real-time”-trending and batch reporting in Excel of all critical process data and batch identification.
Variable speed impeller with telescopic movement, turning clock and anti-clockwise.
