Tray Drying

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 on the market and a large installed base of systems that drive the Engineering Control here to a custom design. However, containment is accomplished with a standard set of interface and design techniques. The various styles of dryers, interfaces, door types, volumes, ergonomics, and life cycle costs must all be taken into account in order to meet the need of containing the dryer.
