Spray Drying in Food Manufacturing

No Limits
From moisture levels to particle size, color, pH and more, just show us the product specifications you need. Our GEA designed full scale spray dryer can process a wide variety of product types without ignoring efficiency and cost effectiveness. We will use the liquid blend you send us or that we can create for you, feeding it into the system using either a rotary atomizer or a high-pressure nozzle system. A primary cyclone collects and discharges powder that is passed over a sifter and magnet before packaging. Our spray dryer has a nominal water evaporative capacity of up to 3,000 pounds per hour with a 400°F inlet temperature that can be raised up to 500°F. After completion, our CIP system and trained operators lead the charge in thoroughly cleaning the system for the next production in line.

On a Smaller Scale
For product development projects, PacMoore also offers its GEA (FSD™) 4.0 pilot spray dryer. The system has a nominal water evaporative capacity of approximately 50 pounds per hour making it easy to cost-effectively validate products before moving them into large runs on our full-scale system. From pilot to production, our spray drying experts have you covered.
