Fluidized bed Coating

Service Overview

Spray coating in a fluidized bed system produces an optimal surface coating for your product through even application of a film material. With this method, particles having different shapes and sizes are moved around in the fluidized bed and simultaneously sprayed with a liquid.

Spray coating can be performed – usually in batch processing – in all fluidized bed systems. For some coating applications, a continuous process is also available. The film material is applied as a solution, suspension or melt. Caution should be taken here that no liquid bridges form during application in order to avoid undesirable agglomeration.

Benefits

  • Spray coating in a fluidized bed system produces an optimal surface coating for your product through even application of a film material.
  • The casing can be used as a protective layer to increase shelf life or storage stability as well as to make the particles functional – for instance, to mask odors or tastes or to release specific active substances.
  • This is an efficient process.
