Spray Drying and Atomisation of Formulations – 2021

12th October 2021 - 14th October 2021

This course has taken place. Look here for details of the 2022 event.

This unique and popular short course, first developed in 2014 and repeated annually since, is now a three-day course. Following postponement in 2020 it will be delivered once again in 2021 via a mix of academic and industrial presentations, video demonstrations, theory and real industrial case studies.

This University of Leeds course is supported by iFormulate Ltd.

Past courses have been extremely popular so contact the University now to register your interest for 2021. Details are on the University of Leeds Engineering CPD site.

Day one will focus on the theory of Spray Drying and Atomisation of Formulations and will include practical video demonstrations. On the second and third days, a variety of speakers will show examples of how the science has been applied in industry.

Upon completion of this course delegates will be able to:

– Apply an understanding of how fluid properties, rheology and atomisation performance can have an influence on spray drying.

– Learn how to manipulate drying parameters to influence product microstructure, materials properties and quality parameters.

– Gain an appreciation of the hazards involved in spray drying and how to ensure safe operation.

– Learn how spray drying processes can be scaled up and appreciate the possible pitfalls on scaling up.

– Understand how spray drying principles can be applied to the manufacture of real industrial formulated products for economic and better preforming processes as well as improved product performance and quality.

– Gain an insight into how challenges are tackled across different industries.

– Learn how to choose and design appropriate equipment such as atomisers and towers for laboratory, pilot and production-scale spray-drying.
