Spray drying is a commonly used method of drying a liquid feed through a hot gas. The liquid feed varies depending on the material being dried.

The liquid feed is pumped through an atomiser device that produces fine droplets into the main drying chamber. The spray dryer is equipped with two type atomiser, two fluid nozzle and rotary atomizer.  By using two fluid nozzle, compressed air is used to help atomizing where as in rotary atomizer the feed is atomized with the help of spinning wheel which rotate up to 30,000 rpm.

The hot drying gas can be passed through the chamber meet the fine fed droplet.  The water from the droplet will evaporised and leaving the solid content in the form of powder.  The powder and water vapor will then go to a cyclone separator in which the powder will be separated from the water vapour and hot air.
