Fluid Air’s portable PolarDry Electrostatic Spray Dryer Model 0.1 is compact in size while retaining the same features of previous spray dryers. The spray dryer’s smaller dimensions allow the system to fit inside spaces such as most lab fume or containment hoods.
The dryer produces small-scale samples with minimum product loss and can be easily disassembled for autoclave sterilization, the company reports. The system is compatible with optional high temperature and ultrasonic spray drying nozzles that ensure efficient microencapsulation. The ultrasonic nozzle is suited for creating small particles less than 10 microns, and formulators still have the choice to use the Model 0.1 as a standard spray dryer with two fluid nozzles. Other features include a programmable logic controller system with data-logging, zero need for an atomizing heat, and low volatility loss.
