The RoLab equipment provides the advantages of combining the mechanical solid /liquid separation phase as well as the thermal drying phase under vacuum. Microwaves can be added as an additional energy source to further reduce the drying time significantly. Through careful control of product temperature and forwarded and reflected microwave power, this technique is ideal for the fast processing of pharmaceutical products.
The RoLab can also be used as an outstanding solidliquid solvent extractor for trials or small scale production of plant-based ingredients. The microwave generator gives new possibilities of product development, as well as drastically improving the desolventation operations (drying of the spent material to remove the solvent content).
