Fluid bed processing.
For more than 50 years, GEA has supplied advanced fluid bed processing plants for blending, granulating, drying, pelletizing and coating to the pharmaceutical industry. This includes small capacity systems designed for R&D as well as industrial size plants for the batch production of pharmaceutical compounds under cGMP conditions. Using proven standard components, GEA makes plant design both simple and flexible. User-selected process modules, filters, control systems and air preparation units can be combined in a system that meets your process requirements exactly. This modular approach ensures that qualification and validation procedures are kept to a minimum.
For maximum process flexibility, GEA can supply a single fluid bed unit or the patented FlexStream™ fluid bed processor that combines multiple processes in a single process container. GEA has a series of fluid bed processors that are suitable for formulation, process development, the production of clinical material through to full-scale production; the philosophy behind the design is that a combination of standardized modules can be built together to meet specific requirements. As such, dryers of equal capacity may be completely different with respect to design, configuration and physical size
