Maximum cleanability

CRIOX® System is designed and built for quick and thorough cleaning. An important feature for any machine, but crucial for a dryer elected by customers all over the world on account of its versatility and suitability to multi-product processing. Cleanability means easy and simple interior washing, removal of internal components, inspection and external cleaning.

Interior Washing
Disassembly of internal components
Interior inspection
External cleaning

Quick and effective washing is a designed-in feature of CRIOX® System. With drying chamber rotation and lump breakers action very few rinses and only small amounts of liquid are sufficient to meet the FDA residual ppm value requirements for acceptable system cleanliness. Guaranteed efficiency and speed, but also very low consumption of rinse liquid to be disposed.

Moreover, the chamber can be fitted with a C.I.P. device with flush nozzle for spraying liquid in all directions. Fast and complete interior cleaning means quick turn-around for product change.

Disassembly of internal components

All CRIOX® System internal parts are easily accessible from outside and quickly removable.

The relatively small sets of lump breaker blades are easily removed.

The filtering system is easily disassembled using a special stainless steel tool with no particular difficulty for the operator.

  • Filter removal

Interior inspection

Suitable manhole hatchway and unloading hopper facilitate disassembly and inspection.

Furthermore, to facilitate SWAB testing as required by FDA for validation of cleaning procedures, Italvacuum has designed and patented a large hatch giving full access to the machine and allowing all necessary operations in total ease and safety.

External cleaning

The sealed external cladding (particle-free configuration), covering the insulation, the electrical hydraulic and pneumatic circuits, makes external cleaning very easy and effective, avoiding product deposits in nooks and crannies.

This feature also allows partitioning solution for the separation of clean room from machine room.

Partitioning solution allows to isolate the drying chamber, leaving all the auxiliary groups in the technical room: in this way powders handling for loading and unloading the product is confined in the clean room, thus eliminating any risk of contamination.

A particular installation allows the ceiling fixing of the dryer, in order to increase the handling space available in the clean room.
