The chemically resistant powder coated cabinet is designed with the operator in mind. All control switches & dials, liquid feed pump are all on one face, allowing the operator a full visual spectrum of the complete drying process. The clamps have been specially designed to allow a single operator the ability to quickly assemble or remove the glassware. An integral air filter on the rear of the cabinet ensures that the drying air does not include contaminants.
Atomiser construction is of 316 stainless steel allowing for a range of aqueous solutions / suspensions to be spray dried.

Control and Functionality
Operators can easily control the speed of the liquid feed pump by the well positioned control dial which is accessible above the glassware, allowing the operator a clear view of the drying process. Inlet temperature for drying is controlled by an easy to use CAL controller. The system has two over temperature devices included as standard to protect the device and operator.

An external compressed air supply** is required for the operation of unit. We do have an optional compressor that can be purchased for this process or alternatively it can be connected to a clean laboratory air supply. **minimum compressor / air requirements: 27l/min @0.5 to 3.0 bar regulated and clean air.
