Custom Spray Drying
Custom spray drying – transform liquids into dry powders by spraying the liquid into a spray dryer where it makes contact with hot air that removes the moisture.
Prilling – transform liquid melts into dry powders by spraying the liquid/melt into a spray dryer where it makes contact with ambient or cooled air. Spray chilling creates an encapsulation that used to protect ingredients, convert liquids into solids, and provide a means for controlled release. This process is known as spray chilling, spray congealing, prilling, or escapsulation.
QIC owns and operates three Tall Form towers for custom spray drying. The three towers are scaled and designed to spray dry food grade specialized items, which typically require unique processing. One tower is also set up to perform spray chilling/prilling.
