Aarhus University wants to buy a laboratory scale spray drier. the equipment purpose is to support the leading research carried out in the FOOD Department related to ingredient extraction and design of emulsions and delivery systems. The researchers are familiar with spray drying technologies available and are aware of all the pilot scale options and the Buchi system is the only entry point at the laboratory level. Other options are available in stainless steel, however, larger amounts of samples are needed and much of the sample would be lost in the drying chamber. This is the only equipment available with a small glass vessel and for this reason, the Buchi Mini Spray drier, B290 is the entry point spray drier for both academia and industry.
After researching all the available options we have concluded that the Buchi Mini spray drier, B290 is the only equipment fitting the purpose of our work and our choice.
