Set of two vertical vacuum dryers for a British company

We start the year with great enthusiasm and dedication to our work!

We have just delivered a set of two vertical vacuum dryers Supradry SDV-010 of 1,000 liters in AISI-304-L stainless steel to a large British company with more than 100 years of history dedicated to the chemical sector.

In this project, our client required dryers that were very careful with their product, which in this case were polymers, and that were able to reduce the humidity of this from 0.2% to 0.01%.

To achieve a reliable industrial process, we previously tested the process in our Test Center. Once the necessary adjustments were made and the desired results were obtained, we scaled the equipment to achieve the performance required by our client.

Nutsche Filter Dryer for an Northamerican Foodtech company

Nutsche Filter Dryer

A North American Foodtech company has relied on Bachiller for the manufacture of a Nustche Filter Dryer (FNB-4-S)  with a volume of 4 m³ in AISI-316-L.

In this project, the client required an equipment that was capable of separating the crystallized product after the crystallization reaction, washing it and finally drying it to reach the final moisture levels necessary for its quality standards.

The Nutsche Filter Dryer is the optimal equipment for the needs of our client in this project, since it will be able to carry out all the required processes in the same machine and with high efficiency, validated in our laboratory.

Additionally, we have provided our client with a weight-controlled unloading system in Big bags, with metal detection. To accommodate all of this, and due to available height limitations, a screw conveyor has been installed to perform all operations on one level.

Agrochemicals production plant for Northern Europe

Agrochemicals production plant for Northern Europe

A renowned North American multinational dedicated to the production of agrochemicals has entrusted Bachiller to design and manufacture a drying and homogenization equipment for its plant in Northern Europe.

The supplied equipment consists of a 3.000 l Supradry SDV-030 vacuum dryer, a 5.000 l Supramix MVC-050 homogenizer, a 7.000 l Supramix MVC-070 homogenizer, a heating and cooling system skid mounted, a vacuum and recovery of solvents system skid mounted, and the dosing systems from equipment to transportation systems by rotary valves.

Prior to the design and manufacture of the equipment, a set of tests were carried out in the BACHILLER’s Test Center facility in Barcelona. With the operational parameters and the results of the tests, it was possible to validate that the final product met the necessary quality requirements, and it also allowed to know the behavior of the product once dried, which led to the addition of Supramix homogenizers to the installation, one prior to drying and one later to avoid caking in both cases. The complete report was issued to the client with the information of the process and the evolution of it.

One of the key factors to gain the client’s trust has been the ability to define the solution, and the BACHILLER’s commitment to the results of the productive capacity of the solution, strengthening this trust with the flexibility and ability to modify the design of these equipment during the manufacturing process, due to the importance of maintaining the dates from the beginning (schedule driven project), constantly adapting to the new discovered parameters of the product.
