This spray dryer has a cyclone separator

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The Mobile Minor MM 100 spray dryer (photo) is equipped with the Cyclone CEE mechanical powder separator. This cyclone helps operators overcome challenges in spray drying, such as smearing due to powder settling in the cyclone, as well as abrasion and the resulting costly production downtime. The Mobile Minor MM 100 can operate with a process gas flowrate of up to 100 kg/h at an inlet temperature of 200°C. For many products, this means a 30% increase in powder production compared to previous models, says the company. High-performance HEPA filters are available, for food or chemical applications, as well as powder collection-tubes in sizes from 250 to 3,500 mL — GEA Group, Düsseldorf, Germany
