Good results can be achieved in complex processing processes by supplementing Eirich mixing technology with task-specific peripheral drying equipment. EIRICH have developed the EVACTHERM® system as a unit which is capable of drying, mixing and pelletising – all at the same time and in the same unit. It is used for the processing of ceramic compounds with more demanding quality requirements. Depending on the requirements, it can be used both for defined back-drying of compounds and/or for the production of granules with the right level of moisture for pressing. As a closed system, EVACTHERM® can also be used with organic solvents and inert gas. It is also approved for use under Ex-proof conditions.
Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich supplies innovative process engineering technology for all areas of ceramics and analogous specialist fields with a broad range of plant and machinery covering the basic operations of “mixing, pelletising, kneading, drying and fine grinding.” The shaping processes common in the ceramic industry, such as dry pressing, moist pressing, isostatic pressing, extruding, die casting, slip casting and film casting, demand efficient preparation systems.
