Innospray. Innovation

Versatility and Profitability

INNOSPRAY® technology dries liquid flows transforming them into a dry product through an innovative process based on spray drying.

Versatility in the design of this technology allows processing a wide range of compounds, flow ranges and drying patterns with the very end of adapting the application of technology to products of diverse nature and composition.

INNOSPRAY®’s development has been intended to deliver an economical, versatile drying method aimed to minimize and valorize residual flows, as well as to obtain controlled granulometry products destined to chemical industry and production of nanoparticles. Within it application scope, INNOSPRAY®’s technology allows the cleaning and treatment of hot gases by using an aqueous stream as a reaction medium.



Application Scope

  • Reduction of the effluent volume to be managed. Drying of aqueous streams with a high content of dissolved solids.
  • Valorization of effluents (recovering valuable compounds from aqueous streams).
  • Control of drying granulometry and temperature of the product recovered.
  • Cleaning of hot gases (absorption and reaction processes in aqueous base).
  • Drying of intermediate and final goods in chemical industry (particle size control of the powder product obtained).
  • Drying of nanoparticles in aqueous suspension (control of drying granulometry and temperature).
