Thin Film Dryer: Introduction

  • Thin film dryers are used to concentrate, refine, or recover a valuable product through distillation or similar thermal separation processes. Thin film dryers are ideal for thermal treatment of solutions and heat sensitive products, where reduced operating temperatures and vacuum operating pressures are desirable. It has short residence time and high evaporation rate. The vertical film dryer has a jacketed cylinder with a closely fitted rotor that revolves at the center. The rotor blades pick up the material, spread it over a heated surface in a thin film and agitate the film intensely, as it rapidly travels down. The horizontal version of the dryer is used for drying wet cake, pastes, and wet powders.

Key Drivers of the Global Thin Film Dryer Market

  • Growing number of textiles, chemicals and petrochemicals, pharmaceutical, food & beverages, and cosmetic industries are projected to fuel the demand for thin film dryers during the forecast period. Thin film dryers help to make food fresh by spray drying. The advantage of spray drying is a mild and fast dehydration process because of the fast evaporation rate. Increasing demand for baked products such as cakes and pastries is a major driver of the thin film dryer market. China, the world’s largest producer of both raw textiles and garments is expected to have the largest demand for thin film dryers in the near future.
  • Growth in chemical and petrochemical industries is driving the growth of the thin film dryer market. The number of petrochemical industries is increasing due to increasing number of vehicles and passenger cars. Drying of chemicals and petrochemicals demands thin film dryers.
