Flexible Containment Solutions Guide: Tray Dryer Enclosure TechnologySource: ILC Dover
Tray Dryers are a common method of drying wetcakes and granulated drug products. This is especially true in the early product development phase. The issue of containment for this type of process equipment is unique in that open scooping of powder onto multiple trays that get slotted into the dryer one at a time prohibits a mass, single transfer as with charging a vessel through a nozzle.
There are many styles of Tray Dryers that drive the Engineering Control here to a custom design. However, containment is accomplished with a standard set of interface and design techniques.
