Course description

View Course Outline

This accredited course focuses on Spray-Drying technology, a very important process in numerous industries. The course will emphasize the scientific fundamentals and practical operational aspects of Spray-Drying that are seen day-to-day in industries such as Food, Beverages, Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Pulp and Paper, etc.

The primary goal will be to help scientists, engineers and operations professionals to make an impact in their businesses by improving their understanding of these important processes and by learning important techniques to scale-up, improve efficiency, troubleshoot and maximize throughput. Advanced topics such as Psychrometry and calculations methods will be covered

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply the Thermal Efficiency formula as a tool to calculate the optimal inlet and outlet temperatures
  • Calculate the parameters required for the design and selection of atomizing nozzles
  • Calculate residence times and drying chamber design parameters.
  • Explain evaporation and evaporative cooling.
  • Calculate main spray drying parameters by using a Psychrometric chart (on paper and computer).
  • Explain the methods of control of the spray drying process.
  • Explain how to dry challenging products by stating the variables that define a “hard to dry” liquid feed.
  • Improve drying operations by using troubleshooting techniques.
  • Scale-up a process from a pilot plant to a production line.
