Research on drying of granular materials in rotating fluidized beds has shown large increase in momentum, heat and mass transfer rates. Application of this concept to spray drying of food, chemicals and pharmaceutical products offers tremendous opportunities for energy saving, investment reduction and product innovation. Aim of the project is to translate the concept of a vortex chamber spray dryer into a well-engineered unit that is ready for further scale-up and demonstration.
