About Spray Drying

Caloris now delivers the same world-class engineering expertise to process solutions for spray drying that we have provided to satisfied customers of our evaporation technology.

Enhanced Production for Dairy, Food, Food Ingredients and Nutraceuticals

The process of spray drying involves the production of powder by removing water from a slurried feedstock. This is an energy intensive industrial process involving many complexities, but it allows for an extended shelf-life while reducing transportation costs for the removed water.

Whether for new applications or to improve, enhance or increase your current installation or process, the Caloris team of spray drying process engineers is ready to help you solve your existing operational challenges or to take you to the next level in your production.

We’re ready to specify, engineer, design, fabricate, install and commission your complete new spray dryer.
