The new chamber dryer H01compact is Harter’s latest production system. This compact system adds to the German drying system manufacturer’s new product line. The dryer is perfectly suited for laboratory testing very small quantities or for developing new products. It is also ideally suited for startups in the initial development of their product idea.
The H01compact has a drying chamber designed for inserting plates or trays straightaway. As in the H01, products placed separately or at filling heights of 200 mm maximum may be dried. Batch sizes range between 30 and 70 kg depending on the specific application and the product to be dried. Essentials of heat pump based condensation comprise the use of extremely dry air and adequate routing of this air which ensures very high process reliability.
Drying is effected at temperatures which may be varied and controlled at 15 °C to 75 °C as required for the specific application. This drying process ensures gentle drying of products to the desired residual humidity level. As the system is closed air-wise, drying is independent of the climate. All this has a positive effect on aromas, ingredients and flavours as well as the appearance of the products as demonstrated by dryers in operation.
The processes may be validated for pharmaceutical applications and are thus eligible for GMP qualification. Our customers will always obtain a reproducible drying process and may control their parameters at any time.
