Cause of Problem: Product Build Up
Build-up may be due to dryer configuration, use of wider spray angles and powder formulation, but in many cases, it’s the nozzle design. Product build-up drips on the chamber and becomes scorched particle deposits that compromise powder quality.
Solution: Flat Cap Profile
Click&Dry™ flat cap design provides a lower outer face profile greatly reducing build-up. Studies performed in New Zealand show that chambers using Click&Dry technology produce powders with 20% less build-up than any other spray dry nozzle. This is achieved by moving the o-rings into the disc orifice.
Cause of Problem: Wear Part Misalignments
Traditional nozzle designs have misalignments between the swirl chamber and orifice. Decentralized parts create inconsistent spray performance and affect the powder quality through all drying operations.
Solution: Concentric Clasp Technology Increases Spray Performance
Click&Dry™ nozzles align wear parts to produce a uniform spray pattern across all lance sets. Achieving better performance and powder consistency. Pressure – flow is consistent – outcome predictable.
