What is spray drying?

Spray drying is a method for producing a dry powder from a liquid by rapidly drying its contents with hot gas. In many regions of the world, refrigeration isn't readily available. Powdered milk (a result of spray drying) can be easily transported and stored for long periods of time.

Spray dryers can be used for a variety of food industry applications such as coffee, tea, eggs, cereal, spices, flavorings, starch and starch derivatives.

A spray dryer can also be used for other thermally sensitive material such as pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, industrial products and chemical products (paint pigments, ceramic materials, etc.).


How do spray dryers work?

Spray dryers utilize either an open cycle spray dryer system, closed cycle spray drying system, semi-closed spray drying system or an aseptic spray drying system.

The spray drying process itself consists of the following steps:

  1. The atomization of the liquid into small droplets. This is done using rotary or nozzle atomizers.
  2. The mixing of atomized spray with hot, drying gas (often air) and the drying of the individual droplets into solid particles.
  3. The recovery of the dried product. This can be done from the base of the drying chamber or the separation equipment for the spent air.
