More Understanding of the Spray Drying Process

Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering

Sheffield United Kingdom Chemical Engineering Materials Science Mathematics Pharmaceutical Chemistry

About the Project

Spray drying is a process where the slurry converted into powder form. It is widely used in different industries. For example, in the food industry it is used to produce milk powder, coffee and starch. In pharmaceutical industries, it used to produce antibiotics and different other ingredients. In detergent industry, it is used to produce washing powder.

The aim of this project is to improve the properties of the granules by changing the process parameters such as inlet gas temperature, liquid flowrate and drying gas feed rate. Based on the results, the project also aims to build a model that describe the drying process and how it is been affected by different process parameters.

During the course of the project, the student will be trained on different techniques that used to produce and to analyse the particles, ribbon and the granules.

The candidate will be invited to the 9th International Granulation Conference in Switzerland. In addition, the student will be encouraged to attend different conferences of powder technology both inside and outside UK.
