Spray Dryer

_

The LabPlant lab-scale spray dryers are used for producing small quantities of free flowing powder for product research and development.

Spray dryers work by drying atomized liquids in a heated air (or inert gas) column. Unlike other drying methods, spray drying usually produces a free-flowing powder with a uniform size distribution, which requires little or no additional processing.

Extrusion

Extrusion
The wet granulation is extruded to form cylindrical extrudate (noodles or spaghetti) of a constant diameter (normally 0.5 - 3 mm). The wet mass is passed through a screen or die forming a soft, pliable extrudate which breaks by its own weight into shorter units.
