DynoChem Spray Dryer model calculates thermodynamic Design Space

When planning to select or use a spray dryer in the lab or at larger scale, it's important to know the right operating conditions (feed rate, gas inlet temperature, pressure) to achieve potential critical quality attributes like residual moisture and gas outlet temperature.  You can map your dryer's operating space easily using the DynoChem spray dryer template, reducing your dependence on trial and error to find the right process conditions.

Results can be generated for any solvent system in a few minutes.  You can also fit the heat loss parameter (UA) to better characterize your dryer.  And fit the gas-liquid mass transfer parameter (kLa) if your system does not reach equilibrium.
