YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer is a new model pilot-scale spray dryer developed by Shanghai Pilotech.

YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer, the body of the equipment is SUS304 stainless steel, the spray head material is SUS316L stainless steel, the air compressor is an oil-free air compressor, and the noise is very low, less than 60DB.

If you have a traditional pilot scale spray dryer, you will find that this kind spray dryer is very large, covering an area of ​​more than 3 square meters, and it is very noisy. After starting up, the entire experimental building is very noisy. But YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer is very quiet after starting up, and the volume is only 1 square meter.

You must be very concerned about the recovery rate of spray dryers. Traditional pilot-scale spray dryers have very low recovery rates, mostly around 60%, while YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer have a maximum recovery rate of 92%.

During the experiment, sometimes you have few materials. The traditional pilot-scale spray dryer requires at least 2L of materials each time. It is very inconvenient to prepare materials. However, the YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer only needs 50ML to complete an experiment. No need to buy another one mini spray dryer.

The YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer has an inlet air temperature range of 110-350°C. During low-temperature spray drying, the lowest outlet temperature is 60°C, which is very suitable for sugar-containing materials and heat-sensitive materials. It is also suitable for some materials that require high temperature drying.

YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer, the particle size after drying is 1-100 microns, and the particle size range is wide, suitable for your different drying requirements.

We also recorded the operation video of YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer for you.

Flexible switch between small and high processing capacities  The minimum and maximum capacities of YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer are respectively 50ML and 4L/H. Being capable of continuous production, it is a perfect combination of minor, small and pilot scale.

Large particle processing ability  Size of particles dried with conventional lab spray dryers is generally 1-25μm, but they cannot meet requirements of processing of catalyst and other large particles. With YC-019, you can get particles with a maximum size of 100μm and it is the first choice for processing of catalyst and other large particles sizing 60-100μm.

Perfect combination of low temperature and ultra-high temperature  With maximum inlet air temperature reaching 350°C, it can meet ultra-high temperature drying requirements of ceramics and other materials; with minimum inlet air temperature being 105°C, it is especially suitable for spray drying of traditional Chinese medicine, extracts of natural substances and other materials with sugar content. No material will adhere to the wall during drying and materials are featured with excellent fluidity after drying.

YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer Controls & Functionality

YC-019 lab spray dryer is designed to ensure that all functions are simple to select and adjust, to quickly achieve the optimum conditions for spray drying. Both use a clear touch screen display , the operator can control the following functions:

  • Inlet Temperature
  • Airflow Volume
  • Air compressor flow
  • Pump Speed
  • De-blocker Frequency

YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer Two Fluid Nozzle with SUS316L stainless steel

YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer Two Fluid Nozzle with SUS316L stainless steel

The stainless steel spray assembly consists of an inner tube for the liquid sample leading to a small diameter jet. An outer tube directs compressed air to the nozzle. All units are supplied with 0.7mm jets, other sizes are available as accessories.The spray assembly incorporates an automatic de-blocking device that prevents the jet nozzle from becoming blocked, the de-blocking needle is activated by an integral compressor. De-blocker is sometimes necessary with materials which may solidify or when large particles in suspension cause blockages in the jet.

High recovery rate With only one cyclone separator, recovery rate is always a problem with lab spray dryers and it is difficult to improve recovery even with two cyclones. With the structured redesigned, YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer can reach a maximum recovery rate of 92%, excellently solving the problem of low recovery.

Temperature protection The heater has an extreme high temperature when experiment finished, which needs air blower to continue working in order to reduce the inside temperature and ensure the safety of equipment, YC-019 lab pilot  spray dryer can control air blower running automatically, even the operator wants to turn off the air blower, the system would prevent the operator until the temperature of system reduce to the default security state of system ;

SUS 304 stainless steel Spray chamber, cyclone separator, collector are all made of SUS 304 stainless steel . It can work in a no-pollution and stable environment, and sight glass equipped so the whole process can be inspected. All the spare parts are easy to install and clean.

Trusted by the users Over 1,500 domestic customers of top universities, enterprises and research institutes use our mini spray dryer. And exported to more than 40 countries & regions such as the United States, Italy, South Korea, Mexico,Singapore, Canada, Malaysia, Chile and Russia etc.

YC-019 lab pilot spray dryer PRINCIPLE

  1. A menu driven microprocessor controller allows the selection of inlet temperature, airflow, automatic de-blocker frequency and pump speed.
  2. The self-priming peristaltic pump delivers the sample liquid from a container through a small diameter jet into the main chamber. At the same time an integral compressor pumps air into the outer tube of the jet which causes the liquid to emerge as a fine atomised spray into the drying chamber.
  3. Heated air is blown through the main chamber evaporating the liquid content of the atomised spray. The solid particles of the material, which are normally in a free flowing state, are then separated from the exhaust air flow by a cyclone and collected in the sample collection bottle. The exhaust airflow is directed through a flexible 60 mm diameter hose direct to atmosphere or to an existing extraction system.
