spray dryer Equipment in which the material to be dried is sprayed as a fine mist into a hot‐air chamber and falls to the bottom as dry powder. The period of heating is very brief and so nutritional and functional damage are avoided. Dried powder consists of hollow particles of low density; widely applied to many foods (e.g. milk) and pharmaceuticals.
