This study investigated the effect of spray-drying conditions on the resulting functionality of milk protein concentrate (MPC), utilizing specially. conditions, properties of the dairy products and storage conditions. The aim of this review is to de- scribe the process of spray drying of dairy products and to. To design dairy powder properties according to their future use, it is necessary to know how to identify the main process parameters that.

Spray dryers can dry a product very quickly compared to other methods of drying. They also turn a solution, or slurry into a dried powder in a single step, which can be advantageous as it simplifies the process and improves profit margins.

In pharmaceutical arena, spray drying is employed to manufacture Amorphous Solid Dispensation, by uniformly disperse Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients into spray drying of milk polymer matrix. This state will put the active compounds drug in a higher state of energy which in turn facilitates diffusion of drug spices in patient body [5].

Micro-encapsulation[ edit ] Spray drying often is used as an encapsulation technique by the food and other industries.


A substance to be encapsulated the load and an amphipathic carrier usually some sort of modified starch are homogenized as a suspension in water the slurry.

The slurry is then fed into a spray drier, usually a tower heated to temperatures well over the boiling point of water. As the slurry enters the tower, it is atomized. The small size of the spray drying of milk averaging micrometers in diameter results in a relatively large surface area which dries quickly.

As the water dries, the carrier spray drying of milk a hardened shell around the load.

That is, lighter molecules tend spray drying of milk boil off in larger quantities at the processing temperatures.

Loss is minimized industrially by spraying into taller towers. A larger volume of air has a lower average humidity as the process proceeds.


By the osmosis principle, water will be spray drying of milk by its difference in fugacities in the vapor and liquid phases to leave the micelles and enter the air.

The use of washable filters, which are linked to the CIP system, are the current state of the art.

Regular cleaning ensures that the residual fines are not contaminated and remain suitable as food, which leads to an increase in yield and thus a reduction in powder manufacturing costs. Most dairy powders can be produced without cyclones if the surface area of the filter is dimensioned appropriately.

Fluidbed drying and cooling Powder from the chamber is further dried and cooled in a fluidbed arrangement. The system used, depends on spray drying of milk type of product. Fluid beds are used for single and multi stage drying of agglomerated and non agglomerated products.

Fluid beds allow gentle after drying spray drying of milk cooling of delicate products.

Spray drying

The well mixed bed spray drying of milk or shaking will achieve superior mixing of particles giving the powder a uniform temperature and moisture profile, equal to that of the outlet product flow. The homogeneous composition allows high air velocity, causing high turbulence through which feedstock is rapidly dispersed in the fluid bed thus preventing lump formation at this critical stage of the process.

Further drying and cooling of the powder is achieved in the plug flow sections after the well mix or static bed for accurate control of moisture and temperature spray drying of milk as required. The powder present in the exhaust air from the fluid beds will be separated in a cyclone or bag filter.

The separated powder will be released from the air stream within the cyclone or bag filter and deposited fines will be returned to the systems convey line through a rotary valve underneath the cyclone or bag filter.

The powder will then be returned to the fluid bed or chamber. The drying and cooling air for the static or shaking beds is supplied by means of spray drying of milk handling units.
