Maximize Lifetime Value

Spray dryers represent a significant capital investment for dairy, beverage, food, pharmaceutical and chemical producers that require conversion of slurry to powder. Keeping these systems running at peak performance is essential for maximum profitability. But frequent operation at high temperatures and pressures can degrade performance as well as, threaten the safety and environmental integrity. 

Our Anhydro brand offers a diverse set of rebuild, upgrade and optimization opportunities to increase plant efficiency, process optimization, safety, and sustainability initiatives.

We develop customized solutions that align with market drivers such as:

  • Safety
  • Sustainability
  • Capacity increase
  • Plant availability
  • Automation
  • Product properties
  • Low energy use
  • Maximized production time
  • Minimized product loss
  • Reduced operation costs

Are You Getting the Most from Your Investment?

SPX FLOW helps maximize the return on your spray drying assets by untapping the hidden potential in your dryer plant.

Based on experience with more than 6,000 food plants, we have developed an Upgrade and Rebuild program that addresses the top concerns our spray dryer customers have expressed as a priority. These priorities include safety, plant efficiency, process optimization, and environmental protection.

SPX FLOW provides a complete Upgrade or Rebuild solution from beginning to end. The result is a system built with the highest quality components that work together seamlessly to deliver the value you need. Another advantage is that you have a single point of contact for all system issues.



Minimizing Risk of Dust Explosion

Safety is an important driver for upgrade and rebuild projects. An inefficiently run plant can put your people, your plant, your community, and, yes, profitability at risk. SPX FLOW helps identify and eliminate potential hazards.

We are committed to delivering value in all these areas to support your improvement without adding significant CAPEX.

Plant Efficiency

Efficient spray drying reduces energy use and other operating costs while improving process stability, yield and hygiene. A carefully planned upgrade or rebuild improves performance while extending the life of your equipment.

Our experts identify the process points where improvement can have the greatest impact. That could mean recovery of lost energy to reduce energy consumption, adding process stages to expand capacity, accelerating cleaning and drying during CIP to minimize downtime or automating manual operations to streamline your batch line. Whatever the need, with SPX FLOW, you can be sure you are getting the maximum return on your assets.

Process Optimization

Upgrading or rebuilding is not just about fixing what is broken. It can also mean analyzing effectively operating systems to make them run better. This could be part of a continuous improvement strategy to increase production value, revamping processes, or products to meet an emerging market trend or bring processes in compliance with environmental legislation. Regardless of what level performance improvement you need, SPX FLOW has the experts, equipment, and proven methods to make it happen.

Proven Methodology

A Single Solution from Inquiry to Acceptance

Over the past 70 years or so we have honed our methods to produce the best possible outcomes. We deploy a team of experts to your site to listen closely to your needs who then study your engineering drawings, walk through your plant, and talk to your operators. They then come back with recommendations for how to get the most value from a rebuild or upgrade. Our team also handles installation, commissioning, and start-up, or can supervise your own teams as necessary.
