Advantages of Spray Dryers from Specific Manufacturers in the Spray Drying Industry

There are five major spray drying manufacturers that you should take a closer look at, depending on your spray drying industry application, when considering the purchase of a spray dryer.

  1. Niro – GEA Process Engineering, more familiarly known in the spray drying industry as Niro, has been a game player for more than three-quarters of a century. The company prides itself on designing its spray dryers for the specific product to be dried. To that end, Niro manufactures spray dryers specifically for the dairy, food processing, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries. Compliance with product property requirements and plant performance is also a cornerstone of GEA Niro.

  2. Mason – A leader in laboratory and industrial equipment manufacturing, Mason’s line of spray dryers encompasses encapsulations systems, inert loops, and dehumidifiers as well as mini and nano spray dryers. One of the hallmarks that sets Mason apart in the spray drying industry is that it custom builds spray dryers to its customers’ exact specifications. Premium materials like stainless steel also go into Mason’s spray drying equipment.

  3. Rogers – C.E. Rogers manufactures both multi-stage vertical spray dryers and horizontal spray dryers. As a result, Rogers spray drying equipment can handle everything from the most basic to more complicated applications.
