For more than 50 years, GEA has supplied advanced fluid bed processing plants for blending, granulating, drying, pelletizing and coating to the pharmaceutical industry. B. Fluidization and Fluid Bed Granulation Fluidization is the operation by which fine solids are transformed into a fluidlike state through contact with a gas. Moreover, the fluid bed agglomeration process is a combination of three steps: dry mixing, spray agglomeration, and drying to a desired moisture level or to a desired granule size.
Fluidized Bed Granulation. Granulation. In the pharmaceutical industry, granulation refers to the act or process in which primary powder particles are made to adhere to form larger, multi-particle entities called granules. Riva Europe – The Fluid Bed System BFS is a granulation and drying system specifically optimized for pharmaceutical applications. It features a broad range of extension options for Bottom Tangential Spray Granulation as well as Bottom Tangential Spray Coating. In the fluidised bed granulation process the effect of nozzle air pressure and binder spray rate on key aggregate quality attributes were studied. The experimen.
Fluid bed granulation technology was developed in the mid-1970s by NSM Sluiskil (then Hydro Agri, later Yara), a large nitrogen fertilizer company which had been producing urea in Sluiskil in the Netherlands since the 1950s.
