There is a clear need for continuous, non-batch commercial-scale drying technologies that maintain a product's thermal integrity.
Fluid Air has developed an electrostatic spray dyer — PolarDry. The concept utilises electrostatic technology that works by driving water/liquid to the outer shell.
Electrostatic spray drying — manufacturing heat-sensitive biomaterials and special dairy ingredients01 May, 2020 by Tiago Oliveira, Spraying System Co Pty – Fluid Air Australia, Melbourne, Australia.
PolarDry is specially designed to fulfil a gap within the powder manufacturing marketing: the processing of heat-sensitive products in a continuous regime.
PolarDry electrostatic spray drying is a novel technique developed to meet the demands and challenges associated with conventional spray and freeze drying.
Fluid Air's PolarDry Electrostatic Spray Dryer is an electrostatic system that lowers evaporation temperature and helps to eliminate active ingredient loss, degradation and denaturalisation.
Genevac has announced the second generation of its miVac centrifugal sample concentrator range. The product incorporates an improved pressure controller with intuitive programming and graphical display, making it even easier to use.
The latest version of Genevac's autostop when dry control software allows the company's EZ-2, Rocket and HT-Series evaporators to automatically detect when the samples are dry and then shut down, safeguarding valuable samples from potential thermal degradation.
The rotary evaporator Rotavapor R-300, from BUCHI, evaporates liquids for separation. The modular concept offers many options for upgrades and customisation.
UK researchers have used a Genevac miVac DNA concentrator for efficient sample preparation in a forensic method to detect residues of diclofenac in vultures and livestock animals.
Genevac's Dri-Pure technology, available on Series 3 HT, EZ-2 and Rocket Synergy evaporators, enables scientists to rapidly dry their samples without foaming, cross-contamination or loss of sample due to solvent bumping.
The Ultravap Levante from Porvair Sciences is a nitrogen blowdown evaporator that comes with an RS232 connection and a remote command set, enabling it to connect to and be operated from most robotic liquid handling systems.
Evaporator systems from Genevac can be used to safely prepare samples containing volatile analytes in a wide array of food and beverage applications, ranging from testing constituents of beverages and gluten levels in whisky to pesticide analysis of fruit and vegetables, as well as determining vitamin levels in cereals.
Designed to concentrate or completely dry samples, the EZ-2 from Genevac is an evaporator used by academic groups in chemistry, pharmacology, biology, natural product and environmental science departments worldwide. Benefiting from a suite of preprogrammed methods, the evaporator is particularly suitable for multi-user environments.
The Series 3 HT evaporator range, developed by Genevac, offers features and functionality that provide consistent high-quality results, good sample protection, flexibility for multiple applications, robust build quality, ease of use, rapid high-throughput results and low maintenance.
Genevac's Rocket Synergy automated evaporator system is said to be replacing the rotary evaporator as a tool for rapid and sample-safe evaporation of natural product extracts. The design of the product, used in conjunction with Genevac SampleGenie technology, enables researchers to dry down samples in just 1-2 h under low-vacuum and low-temperature conditions.
