Spray Drying

Spray Drying. The process of removing moisture (q.v.) from liquid substances, such as eggs (q.v.), milk (q.v.), syrups (q.v.), and others, by converting them into sprays (q.v.) and ejecting them as a mist into a heated atmosphere within a chamber or desiccator (q.v.) to bring about an almost instant dehydration (q.v.) that results in finely granulated powders.
