Spray drying
Quality and precision for the highest demands

We are firmly rooted in the Black Forest, the Schwarzwald – which is why our home forms part of our name, Schwarzwaldmilch Contract Manufacturing. The production site of Schwarzwaldmilch Contract Manufacturing is in Offenburg, which is in the Black Forest.

The spray drying of solutions, suspensions and emulsions into free-flowing powders with a uniform particle size is one of our core competencies. We bring these to the table as a contract manufacturer of powders for food, nutritional supplements and pharmaceutical excipients. We have a proven track record of implementing processes onto our multi-product plant. The process transfer is carried out after precise consultation with our customers.

Depending on the properties of the finished powder, drying is carried out by means of a disc or nozzle – due to the low thermal load, we can also dry heat-sensitive materials. By recycling fine particles into the process, the dust content in the finished product can be reduced. In addition, different degrees of agglomeration can be achieved. With the subsequent protective sieving of the finished powder, the oversize particles are removed.

Strict quality controls
by means of in-house analytics

Every step in the manufacturing process is strictly controlled so that we can consistently guarantee the highest quality of our products. Compliance with your specifications is checked by our in-house analytics.

Powder blends
Packaging for customer requirements

The packaging and refinement of powder variants entirely according to customer requirements is part of our technical capabilities. Our many years of experience in specification-compliant and homogeneous mixing goes beyond milk powder. Our employees are able to meet recipe specifications with pinpoint accuracy. If required, they are supported by a modern laboratory with reference methodology and precisely calibrated rapid methods.

In addition to powder in powder mixtures, liquid additions are also possible, for example vegetable oils for dust binding.

We meet the highest certified hygiene and food standards at every step of the process, especially during filling. Our quality control can carry out customer-specific tests in addition to the usual methods. In addition, we have a fast and effective exchange with accredited external laboratories.

Within the framework of these specifications, we aim to be as flexible as possible in responding to our customers’ wishes.

Our service for you
Diverse technology for the preparation of your sprayed material

As a part of our contract processing services we will also carry out preparation of your spray dried foodstuffs, food supplements, lifestyle and health products and pharmaceutical excipients before spray drying. Also as part of this process, we can make use of many technical options:

  • Dissolving of solids and mixing of components
  • Concentration of aqueous solutions, suspensions and dispersions
  • Purification, washing and concentration using the most modern ultra- filtration plants (UF)
  • Emulsifying, dispersing and homogenising
  • Heating and cooling of liquid raw materials
  • Fermentation, hydrolysis and a wide range of enzyme-based processes

The ideal process
for your requirements

We develop the ideal solution for the preparation of your product in a joint dialogue – always keeping a consistently high quality in mind while taking your desired product properties into account. The powders produced are filled into sacks, drums, cartons with PE inliners or big bags, depending on your requirements. Our high hygiene standards and the filling process with upstream protective sieving and metal separation ensure consistently high product quality and safety.
