Discover electrostatic spray drying (ESD) and its applications for sensitive materials in a two-part webinar. Historically, drying and producing powders was accomplished by lyophilization, a time-consuming batch process, or conventional spray drying, a process that uses high temperatures. ESD is an innovative new continuous drying process for drying thermally sensitive materials that cannot tolerate conventional spray drying temperatures.

In this two-part webinar series, attendees will learn about ESD and its applications from experts. The speakers will introduce the ESD technology — a drying process that overcomes the limitations of conventional spray drying and lyophilization in producing powders; and describe the advantages of this technology in various application areas. From food to pharmaceutical products, there are many limitations of these currently employed technologies that restrict manufacturers from adopting them. This innovative new ESD technology revolutionizes the manufacturing processes, transportation and storage of thermally sensitive materials.

Join this webinar to learn how the ESD technology works and the applications in which it can be used.

Part 1: Monday, February 12, 2024 @ 11am – 12pm EST – Technology Overview

Part 2: Tuesday, February 13, 2024 @ 11am – 12pm EST – Applications Overview
