Abstract: This work aims at identifying the effects-of the main operational spray-dryer variables on the milk powder quality. Experiments have been performed in a pilot spray-dryer following the full-factorial design technique to provide data and correlations that predict the whole powder properties as function of the main operational variables of the spray-dryer. The emulsion feed flow rate, the atomization rotation and the inlet air temperature have been chosen as the independent variables while the residual moisture content, the tapped bulk density, the cohesion force enhancement between particles as well as size distribution of agglomerate and its morphology are the response variables that quantify the powder quality. Correlations obtained are analyzed and incorporated into a mathematical model previously developed for simulating the spray-drying of whole milk emulsion. Copyright © 2005 Taylor & Francis, Inc.
