who we are

image130

Division by Zero Labs was founded by Steve Rowley, a contract chemist specializing in the development of chemical and food manufacturing processes. He has diverse expertise in drying techniques, particle agglomeration, reaction modeling, and product design. At DbZ Labs, we perform custom R&D for our customers, provide innovation, and guide them through the manufacturing process from lab scale to piloting and commercialization. We have diverse experience drying chemical, pharmaceutical, biological, agricultural, and food products. spray drying testing lab dryers for sale

what we do

Spray Drying

 With our lab scale R&D spray dryers we are capable of testing very small samples and adjusting parameters quickly. For difficult to dry  materials there is no better way to efficiently and economically perform screening tests to find the optimum carrier system.  We also have access to a pilot spray dryer that averages 50 lbs/hr of water evaporation for small scale production or piloting. spray drying

 DbZ Labs is the sole U.S. manager for sales and distribution of Hemraj - India Spray Dryers.  We like Hemraj dryers because they are very affordable and well built.  No matter what stage of development you are in (from R&D to production) Hemraj has an appropriately sized dryer for you. dryers for sale spray drying

Freeze drying is the method of choice for removing solvents from heat sensitive materials. No other method preserves flavors and aromas better. We can perform R&D and feasibility testing with our lab scale freeze dryer and can dry as much as 800 lbs of feed material per batch for piloting and production. testing lab

Microencapsulation via spray drying is the best way to produce powders from water-insoluble oils. With this valuable technique we can encase  oil-based products in a water soluble carrier that will release the oil upon hydration. This enables you to offer your oil-based products in a water dispersible form.

Getting bad particle flow?  Did you know that clever spray drying techniques can be used to modify the surface of spray dried particles?  When done successfully, this can improve particle flow, increase glass transition temperatures, and reduce particle stickiness.  These experiments are best performed in a lab scale dryer. testing lab
