Fluid Air’s Enhanced Magnaflo filter blowback system is designed to increase powder yield in PolarDry Models 001 and 004.

The Enhanced Magnaflo assembly from Fluid Air, a division of Spraying Systems, is a filter blowback system compatible with the PolarDry Models 001 and 004 electrostatic spray dryers. This new model received upgrades intended to increase powder yield through a more effective method of clearing product from the process filters.

Results from a comparative trial demonstrated that the enhanced model increases yield collection from 67.4% to 89.3%. The enhancements are also designed to speed up feed rates, ease processing of fine and sticky particles, and reduce both energy and nitrogen consumption.
