Fluid bed processing for blending, granulation, drying, pelletizing and Coating Process filters
Fluid bed dryers and coaters can be combined with top-drive and bottom-drive high shear mixer-granulators, wet and dry milling facilities, product handling systems, binder and coating preparation units and filtration units, all designed for fully integrated systems. Safety, containment, product flow and building requirements are in-built for full integration and optimum process efficiency.
In granulation, drying, and most pelletizing applications, a process filter is used to
trap mall particles, which are returned to the bed when the filter is cleaned. In
coating applications, fine particles usually need to be removed. Fluid beds that
are used for more than one type of process can be supplied with interchangeable
process filters (see documents for the types of filters).
