SMART Lab Atomizer Universal laboratory spray dryer for material development and pilot batch production

The SMART Lab Atomizer from DORST TECHNOLOGIES is the result of the intensive cooperation with our customers and is perfectly tailored to the special requirements of powder development in the laboratory environment.

Outstanding is the flexibility and mobility. As the world's first and only laboratory spray dryer, the entire spray dryer can be tilted 90° on its chassis. This means that the SMART Lab Atomizer can be used anywhere, even in confined spaces.

This flexibility allows easy access to all important points for operation, cleaning, set-up and maintenance - always safely and without stairs or ladders.

We have made a priority of ensuring that all functional units can be easily changed over by hand and without tools.

All parts that come into contact with the material are easy to clean or simple to replace.

We supply the SMART Lab Atomizer as a ready-to-use complete system with all accessories, nozzles, wash lance and suspension pump in a suitable stainless steel trolley. Simply connect to media and exhaust air and you are ready to go.

The SMART Lab Atomizer provides materials development with a unique system solution that can deliver comparable, scalable results for larger stationary production facilities starting at just one liter of water-based suspension.

The main area of application is in advanced technical ceramics, for silicate ceramic bodies and for hard metals.

However, the SMART laboratory dryer has also already proven its effectiveness in the powder preparation of graphite, minerals, salts, polymers and certain organic substances.
