Powder Drying with an 104-Year Advantage

GEMCO’s Vacuum Tumble Dryer: A Packaged System

After designing industrial vacuum dryers for over 104 years, we have been able to refine our machines to become more durable, fast, and user-friendly. 

In our experience, we have learned that when drying powders, a lot depends on the types of powders you are using in your production. Commonly, other manufacturers are equipped to only dry specific powders, whereas GEMCO’s Vacuum Tumble Dryer is flexible to accommodate a variety of different types. GEMCO supports a wide range of industries and currently, you can find our equipment within:  

  1. Pharmaceuticals 
  2. Plastics
  3. Metal Powders
  4. Inorganic Chemicals 
  5. Cosmetics 
  6. Aerospace
  7. Lithium and New Battery Components

The Vacuum Dryer is a gentle giant that operates at lower temperatures and reduces atmospheric pressure. It pulls out the unwanted liquids by rotating carefully to ensure the product hits the heated vessel walls during every revolution. Each particle is designed to move 6 times per 1 revolution. 

We like to make sure batches are predictable and controlled, which is why our drying process is highly automated. Controlling temperature, pressure, and powder flow was at the top of our minds when designing this dryer. With this type of control, you can increase your production by up to 74% and lower labor costs by up to 29% per production run. Our ‘smart’ dryer technology eliminates the guesswork and tells you when the batch is done! 

The Package Approach 

Our Vacuum Dryers come in 3 different forms: D/3 Double Cone, V-Shape, and Slant-Cone. But we recommend the package approach, which includes:

  • Condenser/Recovery System
  • The Vacuum System
  • Agitator
  • Heating System  

With all these combined, you avoid burning, sticking, and clumping altogether. You can choose to purchase these systems separately, depending on your situation as well. But before you buy the whole package or just the Vacuum Dryer, GEMCO encourages you to test it out first. Our experts will walk you through the process and allow you to make a full production run, so you know exactly what to expect.
