Vacuum Tray dryer is the most commonly used batch dryer. They are box-shaped and loaded and unloaded via a door (two doors on the larger models). Inside are several heating plates mounted one above the other on which the product is placed in trays. The bottom of both heating plates and trays should be as smooth as possible to permit heat transfer between plates and product.
The medium flowing through the heating plates is water, steam or thermal oil. The distance between the heating plates is determined primarily by the surface loading and the foaming of the product. To avoid retrograde condensation, the cabinet walls are indirectly preheated by the heating plates. Next, the product is introduced and heated at atmospheric pressure. Only after all individual product trays reach the same temperature the cabinet is evacuated and drying can start.
The preheating phase is very important in order that the drying curve and the foaming of the product is identical throughout the cabinet, During the main drying phase, the vacuum is in the range of 40 to 80 mbar abs and in the final drying phase, vacuums of only few mbar abs are reached. Heating temperatures are normally on the range between 800C and 1100C.
Depending on product and surface load, drying takes from a few hours to 1 to 2 days. For some products, the vacuum and temperature profiles are automatically controlled in order to prevent a pass over of the critical product temperature. The dimensioning of the vacuum system is an important factor in the design of drying cabinet systems.

The Umang Pharmaceutech Test Station is located in Vasai, THane, conveniently located very close to Mumbai airport, only forty five minutes from Mumbai International Airport. The Test Station's purpose is to assist our Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical Industry customers with feasibility testing of their products on our equipment, and to be a partner with them in the process development as they move forward from the Research and Development stages to clinical production, and eventually into full-scale Manufacturing.
The station combines decades of design and development know-how in the pharmaceutical industry with the very latest in processing equipment to provide you with a unique opportunity for feasibility, development, and small-scale manufacturing of pharmaceutical products.
Your needs are critical and individual. The UMANG Pharmaceutical Test Station has been designed to meet those needs.
Our expertise in formulation development extends to the development of all conventional dosage forms. Our strategic alliances broaden the scope to consider many Novel Drug Delivery Systems (NDDS), including transdermal & liposomal delivery systems. We consider multiple approaches to improve the bioavailability of drugs. We have expertise in improving delivery of poorly soluble/ permeable drugs and the capability to screen potentially innovative drugs based on pharmacokinetic properties. We possess pelletization, drug-layering, particle-coating and other technologies to achieve extended release profiles for tablets or capsules.
Our analytical development services include assay and RS method development and validation, dissolution method development and validation, stability studies as per ICH guidelines, polymorphic form characterization (DSC/TGA/XRD/Microscopy), cleaning validation studies and HPLC to UPLC method conversions.
