Spray drying versus spray granulation – Desired product properties make the difference (German article)

If liquid starting products are to be converted into bulk materials, both the spray drying and fluidized bed spray granulation processes are used. The choice of the optimum technology depends on which particle properties need to be set to enable the specific applications.

Drying liquids containing solids transforms products into a form that is easier to handle and makes them storable at ambient temperatures. (article in German language)
