Drying & Evaporation

ICM Pilot facility has commercially relevant evaporation capacity.  All of the evaporation units are designed and built to the same specifications as commercially operating designs.  With the varying sizes of falling film evaporators, there is a large degree of turndown.  We have relationships with equipment vendors to design and rent systems to meet your needs.

We have spray drying at two distinct scales.  The larger pilot scale dryer uses a two phase atomization nozzles to ensure uniform droplet sizes.  It has multiple nozzles installed so that sticky substances can be easily handled.  Nozzles can be removed from service and cleaned while running.  The smaller lab scale spray dryer has both a centrifugal atomizer and a two phase nozzle.  Depending on the handling characteristics of your product, we will choose the right product introduction method.

ICM has a smaller scale steam tube dryer for use in the pilot facility.  The unit is built to the same specifications as ICM’s full scale commercial steam tube dryer.  It can be used to determine fouling tendencies of new products.​
