APT-5.0 Pilot Spray Dryer



APT-5.0 is the APTSol spray dryer developed specifically for small productions or scale-up activities. APTSol’s engineering effort was to develop a production unit with industrial characteristics, while maintaining an extremely compact design. This allows the production, even on a small scale, of products of the same quality as those obtained on a large scale, while maintaining the ease of use of a small equipment.


Complete process control from a convenient industrial touch screen. The different units that make up the equipment are “stand alone” and equipped with pivoting wheels for easy allocation even in small spaces or even in different rooms. The equipment is equipped with remote control, with the possibility to insert multiple alarms in order to warn the operator and guarantee a production continuity.


Ease and reproducibility are the two key concepts that moved the design and design of APT-5.0. The equipment is designed so that it can be used with simplicity and thanks to the ease of human-machine interaction even non-experienced staff can quickly equipped with multiple options that allow them to change configuration according to different needs.
