Planex System® is a new technology studied by Italvacuum in order to overcome the peculiar limits of the traditional paddle vacuum dryers equipped with concentric agitator. Planex System is based on an innovative philosophy of working, especially suitable for the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients, fine chemicals and intermediates.

Planex System consists of a fixed cylindrical chamber with an eccentric agitator inside with two independent movements, able to rotate on its own axis and tangentially to the cylindrical chamber as well, for a double combined rotation.

Other original and patented products complete the Italvacuum range, developed through 70 years of experience in vacuum process applications. These are:

  • Cabinet tray vacuum dryers equipped with the new CIP MULTISPRAY® fast washing system studied for the carrying out of the cleaning operations of the drying chamber and of the inner shelves (MULTISPRAY Cabinet Dryer)
  • Rotary double cone vacuum dryers / powderers equipped with powerful lump breakers (CRIOX System)
  • Rotary cylindrical vacuum dryer (TUMBLE Dryer)
  • Vacuum pumps with incomparable performance for complete product safety (Saurus939)

All Italvacuum products comply with the main European regulations (CE, ATEX, PED) and with the ever more severe FDA rules and cGMP norms.
