Spray Dryer Case Study Featured by Control Engineering Magazine

A recently completed control system upgrade by McEnery Automation on a spray dryer delivered increased profit and productivity. A Project Case Study is featured in Control Engineering's Global System Integrator Report 2020.

Spray dryers are complicated and difficult to optimize due to the interaction of multiple process control variables, including air flow, temperature and feed rate, and the tight operating ranges of other variables such as air pressure and product moisture content. By integrating all controls into a central PLC-based control system and adding new control devices, this food manufacturer was able to increase production rates, improve product quality, reduce energy costs and ensure cleaning was performed thoroughly. McEnery Automation’s expertise with food processing systems, spray dryers, CIP systems and PID loop control allowed them to guide the customer through design decisions, project implementation and programming and an effective and efficient startup.
