Fluid bed processor / coating

Coating: perfect protection for the core.

Through the even application of material we create all-over coatings and optimum surfaces for your powdered or granulated products. The multi-layer coating offers protection against specific environmental effects, masks odours or permits controlled release of active ingredients.

Coating protects valuable ingredients

Layering for a longer shelf-life

We build up suitable protective layers out of melted fats or substances dissolved in water. The stable coating of the separated particles prevents the uptake of moisture, oxidative processes, or the emission of odours or tastes. A possible off-taste is masked.

Functional surfaces

The type of release of the ingredients is controlled to your specifications by the coating: according to the pH, according to temperature, in the form of delayed release, or mechanically. Resistance to acids (gastric juices) enables the active substances to be released into the gastrointestinal tract at the proper time.

Application of colours and varnishes

We can enhance your products visually as well as functionally. To create an attractive appearance we coat and design surfaces just as our customers suggest.
