Laboratory scale spray dryer

29 April 2020

Spray drying is a dehydration technology for suspended or dissolved materials. Unlike the traditional drying in an oven, through spray drying, the sample spends only a few seconds (1 – 1.5 sec) in a high temperature zone. Therefore, it is highly recommended for drying temperature-sensitive materials (e.g. antioxidants).

CÉPROCQ has a laboratory scale spray dryer unit: Buchi Mini Spray Dryer B-290™.

It is a laboratory equipment capable of drying up to 30 ml/min of an aqueous solution. The output particle size could be adjusted between 2 and 25 μm.
