About Us

Fluid Air, founded in 1983, is a division of Spraying Systems Co., the world leader in spray nozzle technology.

Traditional production processes like freeze drying and spray drying methods have inherent limitations for producers of biotherapeutics, pharmaceuticals, bacteria and other biologics, battery energy storage, food and beverage, cosmetics, and other high-value powders.

Those processes can produce too little powder, too slowly. They are costly and difficult to scale, delaying sales and profitability.

Fluid Air is here to change that, helping our customers get to market faster — with lower cost and investment.

How do we do it?

With powder production processes and equipment that are gentle enough for biologics and other high-value powders.

Our most advanced production system, PolarDry® patented drying technology, is our proudest innovation. It is an all-in-one system to make product with high quality, high efficiency, and reliable throughput.

While scale-up is always challenging, the PolarDry product line utilizes consistent technology that facilitates a seamless transition from lab scale to pilot to full production scale.

In many cases, post-processing is reduced or eliminated with PolarDry. But if needed, we have a product line of fluid bed systems, high shear granulators, particle size reduction systems, bin and bowl elevators, tablet coating optimization systems, and process control software.

Our lab capabilities and ability to test and prove processes can bring greater success, months faster and with less risk.

And our scientists, engineers, and service team act as part of your team, providing expertise, parts, service and support for your equipment at every phase of the design, development, and manufacturing process.

The result? By using us as their process development partner, customers have accomplished great outcomes they simply could not do with traditional systems.
