This article reviews spray drying technology for possible space applications like
processing of concentrated brines that are produced in evaporation/concentration
equipment with a goal of maximum water recovery. Spray drying principles of convection,
radiation and mixed convection-radiation are reviewed. Dryer designs and performance are
reviewed. Subjects of system dynamics and controls are discussed. Adaptations of existing
spray drying concepts to microgravity environment are suggested. Guidelines for design of
the spray drying systems for space applications are proposed.
