Fluid Bed Granulation & Fluid Bed Pellet Coater Machine – Fluidized Bed Dryer

We are the leader in designing the fluidized bed dryer including Fluid Bed Granulation Machine & Fluid Bed Pellet Coater Machine as our FBD helps in the process of drying and cooling of heat-sensitive medicines by reducing the moisture content in a given time. Fluid bed dryer also finds its use in the chemical, food, biochemical and dairy industries, agrochemical, ceramics, pharmaceutical, Nutraceuticals as well as in herbal manufacturing units.
The granulation and pellet coater is designed to perform the coating operation on the granules and pellets.

FLUIDIZED BED DRYER APPLICATION & PROCESS

Shree Bhagwati Mechtech(India) Pvt. Ltd. is a leading manufacturer of the fluidized bed dryer. Fluidized bed dryer is an important part of pharmaceutical industries and is mainly used for the purpose of different processes like coating, cooling, agglomeration, coating, and drying including granulation of minute materials. Bhagwati Mechtech’s Fluid Bed Pellet Coater Machine is an excellent instrument for products sensitive as well as insensitive towards heat. It is utilized in a variety of industries due to its usability in various industries like Pharmaceuticals, Detergents, Nutraceuticals, Chemicals, Agrochemicals, Biochemical, Food, Herbals, Cosmetics, Biotech and various Pharma Institutes.

The fluid bed equipment can be categorized into different designs depending on the application as mentioned below:

1) Fluid Bed Drying & MixingProcess:

The Fluid Bed Granulator has a bedat the bottom of the instrument which contains minute particles which are passed to upper side through afluid. This fluidis further passed through perforated sheets which have been designed especially for this process. The velocity of air remains to an extent to move the particles to the upper portion and is again utilized for the movement of the particles to push forward towards the exit. Heated air is also passed through the particles to dry them by evaporating the moisture inside them. As a result fine particles are stuck together to larger particles which then end up as granules.

2) Fluid Bed Processor for Agglomeration and Granulation Processwith Top spraying System:

This process is utilized top form granules at the fluid bed from fine powder particles. The liquidated powder at the fluid bed uses materials such as binders or starch pest or a fluid. For performing the liquidation process the Fluid Bed Pellet Coater Machine uses a top spraying system installed with a nozzle for spraying and precise dosing peristaltic pump. The process continues till the bridges are formed in-between the particles. The powder does not get segregated since the powders are glued together at a micro-scale.

The formed granules have good solubility and are weak since no disturbance force acts on them. After the formation of granules, they are further dried using hot air. This technology used for granule formation is used for tableting & capsules due to their free flow properties, excellent solubility, dust-free, and good dispensability. The fluid bed processor is designed in such a manner that it can support different processes within a single instrument.

There are different factors which can be responsible for the choice of spray nozzle a manufacturer may include for top spraying processor like the processing option, the mode through which the instrument gets operation. It may be batch or a continuous production and many more.

3) Fluid Bed Equipment with Wurster Coater Bottom Spray for Pellet Coating or Granules Coating:

Pellet Coating is supported in the fluid bed pellet coater due to the support of fluid bed processorsystem in wurster processing to ensure smooth coating of tablets and granular particles. And the fluid bed granulation and fluid bed pellet coater machine can also handle various different processes too and is a cost-effective solution for its users.

The Fluid Bed Granulation machine is capable of handling the following mentioned processes:

  • Solvent or Aqueous based suspensions or solutions
  • Managed release coatings
  • Enteric Release coatings
  • Minute particle coatings
  • Active coatings

The Wurster process is used to apply a coating to the granules or pellets which have been passed through different process in the fluid bed pellet coater machine. The Wurster Coating process is performed in a hollow container in which the pellets enter from the bottom of the cylinder and pass through the spray guns. Here, the granules are coated and passed towards the top in a proper manner which maintains uniformity among the capsules. They are then passed to dry outside the chamber for another layer of coating in the fluid bed granulation machine. The controlled movement of all the granules assures uniformity in layering and provides quality results.
