Agglomerate-free drying: The Media Slurry Dryer (MSD)
With the Media Slurry Dryer you can gain finest powder in nano- or micrometer range out of a suspension or solution. The drying takes place without agglomeration in one step.
The MSD is distinguished by three important features: A very good heat transfer, a large surface for drying and no agglomeration. Due to the first two features the dryer can be build very small. And because of lack of agglomeration a following grinding is not necessary, because origin and product particle do have the same Range (dimension). Successfully dried substances are e.g. emulsion plastic material, colouring agent, pigment and drugs of pharmacy.
The compact construction, the big surface of the media beads and the generated fluidized bed provide a very good heating- and mass transfer. In just one step a fast and efficient drying is achieved. In comparison to a conventional spray dryer the Media Slurry Dryer – at the same amount of evaporation- can be build 20% smaller and needs 30% less amount of hot gas!
