The Labplant SD-06 Spray Dryer is now suitable for Aqueous and Solvent based solutions; previously, separate models were necessary. Following re-engineering, the SD-06 offers a combined spray dryer for both. The addition of a rear plate allows purging with nitrogen for Solvent use, remove it, and Aqueous solutions can be used. Designed to be compact in comparison to alternative machines and easy to use by a single operator.
The SD-06 is housed in brushed chemically resistant stainless steel and can be bench mounted, or an optional floor standard is available. Easy removal of glassware is possible by the supplied clamps and fittings. At the back, an inlet filter removes 99.99% of air laden particles to prevent contamination of drying air.
PLC controlled operation is by an LCD touch screen, inlet temperature can be adjusted for delicate products, airflow, de-blocker frequency, and pump speed can also be set.
The process works as sample liquid from a container is fed into the main chamber through a stainless steel standard 0.5 mm jet by a self-priming peristaltic pump. Air is simultaneously pumped into the outer jet tube by the integrated compressor producing a fine spray within the air heated drying chamber. Liquid content then evaporates from the atomised spray. Solid particles typically in a free-flowing state remain separated from the exhaust airflow and are deposited in the sample collection bottle.
Automatic de-blocking activated by the compressor assists when particles may solidify or large suspended particles inhibit the jet.
Other drying methods such as ovens may require additional work like grinding; spray drying produces fast results from a small amount of liquid with a sphere finish.
