SDS MODEL 48 SPRAY DRYER
Model 48 Spray Dryer
with Cyclone and Baghouse Recovery
The SDS Model 48
spray dryer is used for evaporation rates to 155 lb/hr of water.
The drying chamber is 4 feet in diameter, with a
straight side of 6 feet.
The Model 48
spray dryer can
produce as high as 150 micron average particle size when using
pressure nozzle atomization in the mixed-flow configuration,
with little or no wall buildup.
When used with pressure nozzle atomization, the Model 48 is
especially effective in producing powders with improved "flowability",
tighter particle size distribution, and higher bulk density,
all with a higher overall yield when compared to two-fluid
nozzle and rotary atomization.
actual evaporation rate and maximum
average particle size achievable depends upon the feed being processed,
the site elevation, the air temperatures used for drying, and the nozzle configuration used.
The clear height required for the Model 48 spray dryer ranges from 12' to
depending on the height of the straight side, whether
chamber bottom separation is used, and nozzle configuration. The footprint is
approximately 8' x 12'.
