ModelGPCG 3 and WSG 120
DescriptionFluid bed drying offers important advantages over other methods of drying particulate materials. Fluid bed processing involves drying, agglomeration, granulation, and coating of particulate materials. It is ideal for a wide range of both heat sensitive and non-heat sensitive products.

The granulation process increases the particle size distribution of the powder. This enhances the flowability of the powder in processing equipment. One method for producing granules is wet granulation. In this process, dry ingredients are mixed while they are contacted with liquid causing the growth of granules. Mixing of the dry ingredients can be accomplished through the action of an impeller in a fluidized bed. Drying of the wet granulate can be accomplished in a batch fluidized bed dryer. Ideally, there should be minimal batch-to-batch variation in the particle size distribution and physical properties of the granules.

Possibilities and limitsGPCG 3: Batch sizes from 0.3 kg to 3 kg and WSG 120: Batch sizes up to 120 kg

Application
Application fields Food Stuffs and Dairy Products: agglomerate or granular form to achieve good instant properties; heat sensitive and non-heat sensitive products; coating of powders, granules, or tablets involves the spraying of a liquid on the fluidized powder under strictly controlled conditions; suited for powders, granules, agglomerates, and pellets with an average particle size normally between 50 and 5,000 microns; very fine, light powders or highly elongated particles
Application examples Baby foods

Carbohydrates Instant drinks: Coffee, Tea Dairy products Foodstuff additives Health food extracts Dry powders
