Dehydrated food and powdered dairy products have seen their markets grow for many years, with new and improved products appearing on our shelves daily. One common factor linking all products is the extensive development and testing they undergo. European SprayDry Technologies, based in the United Kingdom, has recently introduced an additional model to their highly successful pilot scale spray dryer range. The model ESDT15 is an innovative spray dryer designed specifically for product development and small scale production.

The ESDT15 is harmonised to other models within the pilot scale range, being an all stainless steel appliance from feed tank to powder collection and only requires an electrical and compressed air supply to start production. The machines comes in food grade finish with 316 stainless steel wet contact surfaces and dry contact surfaces, support frame, access platforms, hand railing and ladders all 304 stainless steel as standard.

An upgraded version in pharmaceutical execution is also available to suit the higher standards of material, finish and documentation required by this manufacturing sector.

Standard execution includes primary air/powder separation via cyclone with optional secondary containment reverse jet bag filters available for all model types. Other options include explosion venting and CIP cleaning nozzles.

The unit includes a feed vessel, peristaltic feed pump and two-fluid atomiser plus automatic clean-out needle, exclusively designed and manufactured for European SprayDry Technologies.

Process air is drawn into the system and filtered through G4/EU4 pre filters and F8/EU8 main filters. Process air heating is provided by an electrical heater.

Product discharge is achieved using a high efficiency cyclone to separate the product from the conveying air stream, with finished product collected in receptacles.

A single fan is located on the units exhaust. Both exhaust fan and feed pump are supplied with variable speed control. The control system can be supplied as either Allen Bradley or Siemens PLC.

Industrial Monitors

European SprayDry Technologies continue to utilise Hope Industries range of Industrial monitors with a 23” touchscreen as standard. The standard model is complete with temperature transmitters positioned on the inlet duct, chamber cone and exhaust duct and pressure transmitters on the atomiser air pressure and inlet air filter health monitor.

The chamber is self-supporting with access provided to the profiled chamber door and roof mounted atomiser via access platforms, hand railing and vertical ladders. Upgrades are available for additional platform areas and stairs.

This model ESDT15, like all models in the ESDT pilot scale spray dryer range, is supplied with a 12 month spare parts kit and a 12 month warranty as standard.

First Installation

The first ESDT15 will be installed in the UK at the beginning of October 2016 with further orders secured for delivery to both UK and mainland Europe.

The pilot scale range of spray dryers are a recent addition to the established ESDT equipment portfolio which includes large scale bespoke production spray drying plants.
