Abstract: A global overview is presented of recent developments in spray drying. Recent advances in computational fluid dynamics modeling have provided new insights into the flow processes occurring within the spray chamber. This is important since detailed experimental measurements within an operating spray dryer are almost impossible due to the hostile environment of high-temperature two-phase flow, which may be unsteady, and the high cost that would have to incur. Some recent predictive studies on predicted effects of innovative chamber geometry, reduced pressure operation, operation in low dew-point air and superheated steam are presented. Also, a comparison is made between steady and unsteady state computations to highlight the critical issues. Predicted results on a horizontal spray chamber configuration are also presented. Finally, a brief survey is made on the recent literature on spray freeze-drying as well as multi-stage drying processes. © INRA, EDP Sciences, 2010.
