The GMP-compliant, FDA-registered facility, a wholly owned subsidiary of SummitReheis, produces powdered solid particles from solutions, slurries and emulsions, and employs a Kason vibratory screener to ensure that particle sizes meet tight tolerances.
“When fully operational, three spray dryers will produce several hundred different spray-dried powders for diverse customers,” says Kevin Kimmick, Summit Custom Spray Drying Director of Process Technologies. “Runs can be small as pilot studies, to as large as 150,000 lb (68,100 kg) at the production level for a major firm.”
“Our expertise in spray drying and equipment selection, as well as the specialized knowledge of our experienced staff, qualifies us to serve these sensitive industries,” he says. “To eliminate any possibility of contamination, we will not accept hazardous or toxic materials such as herbicides or pesticides. And we have specifically designed our equipment to be easily and thoroughly cleaned.”
