Production-Scale Spray Dryer
The new pulse combustion spray dryer is 32 feet tall and operates at a heat release of one million BTU/hour
The new pulse combustion spray dryer is 32 feet tall and operates at a heat release of one million BTU/hour. The all-stainless steel dryer evaporates water at a rate of up to 500 lbs per hour. The unique clamshell design allows the dryer to be completely opened for easy cleaning between demonstrations. The dryer features a state-of-the art control system and three remote monitoring cameras, which allow customers to view all stages of their powder production.

Pulse combustion spray drying offers important advantages over conventional spray drying technologies. Pulse drying uses gas dynamic atomization, which instantly atomizes and dries the feed material without mechanical shear, resulting in higher-quality powders. Different configurations are available to optimize powder characteristics such as particle size, flowability, texture and flavor. Pulse combustion is ideally suited for drying abrasive or heat/shear sensitive materials. Users can also realize dramatically lower maintenance and utility costs.
