Spray drying is the most widely used industrial process for particle formation and drying. Spray drying is well suited to the continuous production of dry solids in powder, granulate or agglomerate particle form from liquid feedstocks. Spray drying is ideal, when the end-product must comply with precise quality standards regarding particle size distribution, residual moisture content, bulk density and particle morphology.
GEA Niro is equipped to engineer the properties our customers want into the products and the processes needed to produce them. With data gained from more than 70 years of experience, a reference list of some 10,000 plants across the globe and 30,000 test reports from our test centre, no-one knows more about the role of industrial spray drying than GEA Niro.
The spray dryer design and technology provides the powder producer with the ability to control the powder form through the spray drying process. GEA Niro spray dryers are designed to produce properties such as particle size, bulk density, moisture content, solubility, dispersibility etc. exactly as desired by the user. The products are applicable to all pumpable products, whether heat or non-heat sensitive.
