MOBILE MINOR™ Spray Dryer: Still Going Strong

Mobile Minor Product Image

Offering an improved design but maintaining the same compact footprint, the MM-100 spray dryer is the newest generation of the MOBILE MINOR™ family.

The new MOBILE MINOR™ MM-100 can operate with a process gas flow rate of up to 100 kg/h at an inlet temperature of 200 °C. High capacity HEPA filters for baby food or hazardous chemical applications are available and powder collection glasses in sizes from 250–3500 mL can be supplied as standard.

An accurate hot drying gas disperser, designed and built using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling and cutting-edge manufacturing technologies, minimizes powder deposits.
