Does Weather Impact Performance or Reduce Capacity of Your Spray Dryers?


Date: June 7, 2017 (60 minutes)

Featured Speaker:

  • Bente Nielsen, Industry Manager, Global Food Industry, Munters A/S

Spray dryer operators have always accepted that the dryer capacity varies with the ambient weather and that plant capacity drops on humid days, because powders may stick inside the drying chamber. But this does not have to be so, as with air dehumidification it is possible to eliminate weather impact and obtain high and constant dryer capacity, without any risk of powder sticking. As a result, plant down-time will be reduced and the spray dryer energy supply will always be utilized efficiently.

During the presentation viewers will learn:

  • How Quantum rotor works in spray drying plants
  • How desiccant air dehumidification allows spray dryers to operate without powder sticking
  • How desiccant dehumidifiers effect drying of different products
  • How air dehumidification prevents dry powders to absorb moisture from air during powder cooling, storage and handling.

Join Bente Nielsen as she details how to overcome challenges from weather by using air dehumidifiers for spray drying operations in different climates, and how the dehumidifiers have helped producers in the food industry experience the benefits of modern desiccant dehumidifiers, including producers of infant formula and different food ingredients.
