Spray Dryer / Chiller

Spray Drying is the most advanced instant drying and chilling process to engineer a particle and formulate in a single step. The unit is capable of spray drying/chilling samples of 0,5 ml to batches of 24 liters/8 hours.



The ProCepT R&D Spray Dryer is a complete process tool that generates reliable, repeatable and scalable results in a minimum of time. Unique features are:

  • Stainless steel head with supporting structure for the glass column
  • Integrated on a trolley, wall mounted or on a fixed table/floor stand
  • Easily accessible and visible glass process column and cyclone set-up
  • High process yields (>90%) from 1ml (10 mg) to 24 liters/8 hours
  • Particles from 1-150µm
  • PC control with real-time trending and excel date reporting
  • Water and organic solvents
  • Chilling or congealing; waxes, polymers, carbohydrates, …
  • Provision for product cooling for very temperature sensitive or low glass transition temperature products
  • Critical process data such as temperatures, pressures and liquid/gas speeds are handled by the control unit
  • Nitrogen recirculation system for oxygen sensitive materials, environmental requirements or drying of high quantities organic solvents
  • Unit can be used for pre-clinical and clinical applications
Typical applications
  • Solid dispersion
  • Nano suspension
  • Matrix
  • Encapsulation
  • Agglomeration
  • Taste masking
  • Pulmonary & nasal delivery

ProCepT’s modular design allows us to provide full flexibility towards integrating the equipment in your laboratory. Various set-ups or even customized designs are possible. The Excel Control system and fanbox can be combined with other ProCepT process modules (such as Pan Coater, Spray Dryer or Granulator) to save lab space and total investment costs. Extra processes can easily be added at a later point in time for a phased investment.
