Laboratory Equipment Spray Dryer for Powdery Samples
GEA Niro launched a version of its proven Mobile Minor spray dryer for laboratory use. The manufacturer believes the unit to be well suited for drying small quantities of solutions, suspensions or emulsions for small representative powder samples.
Predecessor versions of the Mobile Minor sold more than 2,100 units in the 63 years since its rollout, GEA says. The unit can be used as a flexible way to generate test results for future large-scale commercialisation projects. Mobile Minor units come in versions for both aqueous and solvent-based feedstock. The device offers three different atomization modes, since different atomization techniques apply different energy forms to the liquid feed. The unit features a rotary atomizer, located in the center of the chamber roof, driven by a six bar compressed air turbine. Furthermore, a co-current two-fluid nozzle, located in the center of the chamber roof can be used for atomisation.
