MOBILE MINOR™ Spray Dryer with highly efficient powder separation

Offering an improved design but maintaining the same compact footprint, the MM-100 spray dryer from GEA, equipped with the new and highly efficient cyclone CEE (Cyclone Extra Efficiency), is the newest addition to the MOBILE MINOR™ 

The newly developed cyclone CEE offers a higher separation efficiency, which increases the yield and reduces emission. In real life tests, the CEE powder separation efficiency was verified as being considerably higher than the efficiency of standard cyclones. All comparisons were made with the same pressure loss over the units. The efficiency was tested for a range of particle sizes, air flows and powder loadings and superior performance was verified for all combinations.

Installed in almost 2400 plants worldwide, the cross-application MOBILE MINOR™ spray dryer is robust, reliable and versatile. It is easy to use, clean and move and an ideal basis for up-scaling a new process.

Further special features of the MOBILE MINOR™:

  • Process gas flow up to 100 kg/h at 200 °C for increased capacity
  • Accurate gas disperser for minimizing powder deposits
  • High capacity HEPA filters for baby food or hazardous chemical applications available
  • Powder collection glasses in sizes from 250–3500 mL can be supplied as standard.
  • The universal gas disperser for the rotary atomizer as well as the two-fluid nozzle can easily be exchanged with an optional low velocity gas disperser — which has a similar flow pattern to the DPH gas dispersers used in larger PHARMASD™ spray dryers — for nozzle atomization.
  • Powerful supply blower with flow indication
  • Easy to remove and clean laser-cut gas guides (patent pending).

Zero Liquid discharge

Skid mounted Zero Liquid Discharge Unit; efficient separation allows recycling pure water. 

Scope of such ZLD units is to recover high quality process condensate and separated solids of disposable quality (or sometimes valuable products as well), satisfying at the same time stringent requirements in terms of system reliability and availability. GEA offers both thermal and non-thermal technologies for ZLD applications, including centrifugal separators, membrane concentrators, evaporators, crystallizers and dryers. Often these most used technologies are combined and being operated as a complex system. If small treatment capacities are required (up to 10 m3/h), the use of such large complex systems are not always suitable. For these cases, GEA has developed a modular concept based on skid mounted units.

Further special features of the Skid mounted ZLD Unit

  • Designed to handle variable waste streams 
  • High energy efficient
  • Skid mounted units minimize labour requirements during erection
  • Ready for tough conditions enabled by the use of amongst others corrosion-resistant materials
  • Advanced automation and designs resulting in limited cleaning requirements 

ZLD is increasingly attractive in areas where water is scarce and in environmentally sensitive regions where it is not possible to discharge contaminated water. GEA offers modular ZLD systems based around the company’s proven track record in capacities up to around 10 m3/h, plus custom-engineered ZLD plants in sizes up to and above 100 m3/h.

Process refrigeration and boil-off gas solutions

Separation technology for organic acids – More value added to your lysin and MSG production

GEA provides the complete centrifugal separation process in the downstream of the fermenter, starting with accepting and temperature control of the freshly produced fermentation broth, separation of the biomass from MSG solution by means of disk-stack clarifiers, acidification and once again temperature control of the pre-concentrated biomass and finally biomass thickening with decanters.

The process-setup for the production of lysine slightly differs from MSG production. For lysine an additional ion exchange column is needed prior to the evaporation stage.

GEA separation experts have developed a new process with centrifugal separators and decanters instead of horizontal plate filters. Centrifuges use speed instead of space. For example: a clarifier type FSE 300 can easily process 20 – 23 m3/h of fermentation broth and has a footprint of only 3 m2.

Another advantage of using centrifuges is the completely closed process. Feed, processing and discharge of the broth take place in a closed and fully-automatic system, any open or manual handling of the product is no longer necessary. Thus, the use of centrifuges meets the highest hygienic standards that apply especially for the food industry processes. On top, our centrifuges are CIP capable. 

The biggest advantage that comes with our centrifuges though is the fact that they do not need any filter aids. This has the nice side effect that the concentrated biomass is not contaminated. So you can make a valuable product out of it instead of having to discard it.

Improve the profitability of your biodiesel plant with high quality glycerin

Glycerin is a by-product of biodiesel production and amounts to around 10 percent of the overall output of the plants. As market prices for biodiesel have decreased over the past years, producers are looking for other ways to improve their plant profitability. This is why GEA has developed a new process to improve both glycerin yield and quality, e.g. for the use in HPC products.

Depending on the individual biodiesel production process the glycerin contains different kinds and amounts of salts. Those salts have to be removed to minimize product losses in the refining stage. GEA uses special decanters for this stage that can handle product temperatures of up to 160 °C.
