Typically when purchasing a new process system, the company will get bids for each piece of equipment. Each individual piece is shipped to the end destination and then assembled together to make up the system. There can be a number of problems associated with this type of purchasing: scheduling, installation, and commissioning.
Integrated systems by Stelter & Brinck are meant to solve the above issues. S&B designs and manufactures custom process heat equipment units and packages them together, allowing the components to be purchased as an entire system. Installation is easy because prior to shipment the equipment has been test fired in-house. Below is an example of a skidded packaged system.

Spray dryers are a type of industrial dryer that are utilized in the food and dairy powder industry. Industrial dryers commonly use process air heaters as their hot air source. Thermal sensitivity will determine what type of air heater (direct or indirect fired) would be used along with the spray dryer.
A few examples of products that require spray drying are: Inorganic chemicals, instant mixes, and powdered colors. Liquid is pushed through the drying chamber where it is introduced to hot air. At this time the liquid is turned into powder via water evaporation. After drying, the material is separated.
Below is a diagram of a spray dryer.
