Hands-on Workshop Spray Drying

For the first time the Spray Drying Conference also includes a full day hands-on Spray Drying course. The third day of the event is completely packed with practical experiments, where participants of the conference can do their own spray spraying.

For that purpose four different spray dryers will be disposed at the Niro Test Station in Copenhagen. Experienced trainers will lead the small groups through the experiments and show how different parameters and different equipment affect yield, drying progress and particle size. The spray dried product will be tested with different methods, e.g. Laser Diffraction, Microscopy and Loss on Drying to immediately see how parameter changes influence the properities of the product.

The following experiments will be conducted:

  • Labscale spray drying of aqueous/organic solvent applications under contained conditions and influence of process parameters on drying conditions
  • Upscale to pilot-scale spray drying of organic solvent applications and influence of process parameters on particle size
  • Labscale spray drying of aqueous application and influence of process parameters on drying conditions
  • Labscale spray drying of organic solvent application and influence of process parameters on particle size

Further highlights of the conference are lectures on development of  spray drying processes, scale up of spray drying processes, validation of spray drying in a cGMP environment and aseptic spray drying.

The 5690_n.html">conference takes place from 3-5 December 2008 in Copenhagen. Conference and workshop can be booked together or separately.
