Our fluidised bed plants for your innovations

Whether soluble, pourable, dust-free, tabletable, masked or with ingredient protection, you define the product properties and we’ll make sure you get it. We improve and enhance your products with our state-of-the-art fluidised bed plant. Various processes like agglomerating, spray granulating, instantising and microencapsulation are available to us for the purpose. This lets us make individual powder and granulate products with which you as our customer are successful on the market.

Processes that protect your product

The interplay of formulation and process parameters is the key to tailor-made properties and economic production. In the manufacturing of functional food, nutritional supplements, food additives and pharmaceutical excipients, fluidised bed technology has many advantages over other processes. This is particularly the case for thermo-sensitive products. The reason is that substances and starting blends can be enhanced in a fluidised bed plant even at low temperatures. This is a must for the gentle processing of sensitive enzymes and vitamins. Whatever your product requires in manufacturing, the process air temperature can be adjusted between 30 and 130°C.

Multifunctional for custom possibilities

We want to be flexible for our customers and offer everything possible in contract powder manufacturing. Accordingly, our fluidised bed system is multifunctional. It combines a wide range of technical possibilities, and can be run continuously as well as in batch operation. Our technical laboratory also features a lab-scale fluidised bed plant for custom product development. This way, in close dialogue with customers we can work up manufacturing processes and make test batches, which provide the basis for reproducible results later at industrial scale.

Portrait Matthias Liehr - Schichtleiter

As shift manager on our fluidised bed plant, I keep things running smoothly and ensure product quality. I know every individual bolt, I know exactly how the system should sound and what it needs. I’m fascinated every day anew by fluidised bed technology and the things that we can use it to do with powders.
