The Dedert research facility allows us to test products on a pilot scale, and establish the correct parameters and material characteristics needed for optimal design and scale-up. We can also produce samples of the product for market research.
The pilot evaporator is designed for both falling film and forced circulation duty, fully instrumented for the acquisition of key operating parameters. Additional evaporation trials and physical property measurements can be done in the laboratory.
Dedert's 3m-diameter multi-stage pilot spray dryer is a fully modular design with the flexibility to operate as a single-stage, two-stage or three-stage dryer. It has both internal and external fluid bed units for drying, cooling, and conditioning. The state-of-the-art dryer evaporation capacity is up to 200kg/hr, depending on operating temperature. Powder agglomeration is possible with a fines return system. The dryer features both rotary and nozzle atomization, high-efficiency cyclone and dust collection. Heating systems are either indirect or direct fired with gas. Post drying, cooling screening, and classification are also available.
