Safety of spray dryers - webinar recording now available

Pat Swords

Members of the Pharma, and Food & Drink Special Interest Groups, can now replay a recording of the webinar given by Pat Swords (PM Group, Ireland) on 27 January, presenting a systematic approach to process safety for spray dryers. The presentation is aimed at all those who operate and specify spray drying equipment, whether in the dairy, pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries.

Spray dryers, particularly in the dairy sector, have historically been a source of fires and explosions. Despite this their explosion protection remains for many a 'black art'. Yet improved knowledge gained from ATEX compliance, particularly in the area of non-electrical protection, allows one to take a systematic approach to developing a robust basis of safety, encompassing material properties, operational parameters and relevant design assumptions.
