Energy-efficient technology for vacuum drying of dispersed raw materials
 
 Using the relevant example of drying the dispersed rough chromium-oxide refractory materials we tested the methods of determining the moisture and microstructure of dispersed materials subjected to the vacuum drying (Fig.1).

 The conditions of thermal vacuum drying were optimized:
 drying from 79% to ~0.5% moisture;
 acceleration of drying by a factor of 17 as compared to the drying under atmosphere pressure (Fig2);
Comparison of the standard and optimized drying technology

 optimum discrete conditions of vacuum drying are more effective by a factor of 1.7 as compared to the continuous drying (Fig.2);
 after annealing the 100% yield of the high-quality product is provided.
 Patented technological process ensures the decrease of the electricity consumption per unit of dried product yield.
