Quality Ingredients Corporation, an Ingredient Manufacturer that provides Contract Spray Drying, has commercialized its second pilot dryer in its Burnsville, Minnesota facility. The new dryer is well suited to perform multiple test runs of specialized ingredients. This enables ingredient and food manufacturers to strengthen and condense product development cycles. The dryer is best suited for 100 gram to 5 kilogram runs. It is equipped with a rotary atomizer, two fluid co-current nozzles and two fluid counter current nozzles providing a particle range from 10 to 80 microns. A rapid cleaning process allows for up to 10 runs to be performed in a given day. Quality Ingredients Corporation also offers on-site R&D resources to support manufacturers with their specific development and pilot efforts.
