Fluid Bed Dryer / Granulator / Coater


Fluidized Bed Dryer, Fluidized Bed Processor, Fluidized Bed Granulator, Fluidized Bed Coater, Fluidized Bed Roaster

Fluid Bed Dryer / Granulator / Coater(double shaking) is a multi-functional machine that combines drying, top spray granulation, bottom spray coating and side spray coating. It meets the requirements of cGMP, PIC/S GMP and FDA to ensure the quality and safety of the production process. The equipment adopts double shaking mode, the filter bag is made of conductive static electricity cloth and pneumatic operation, which makes the operation more convenient.


1. Top Spray Gruanlation
Spray atomized binder or active ingredients from the top onto the fluidized powder to form the even granules.
2. Bottom Spray Coating
When the hot air passes through the bottom plate of container and partition column, it will generate the siphon effect. The pellets will fall down and then sucked back to the partition column again, while the bottom spray gun will spray coating binder upward to achieve coating purpose.
3. Side Spray Powder Coating/Film Coating
The side spray is better for caoting with high firm content. The cores (seeds) are placed on the turntable disc and hot air is blown upward between the turntable disc and the granulation area. The coating solution is sprayed on the rolling cores through the pump and spray gun. The process involves simultaneous coating and drying of the cores, the repeated actions achieve the desired coating thickness or granule size. Powder coating is achieved by charging powder and spray binder at the same time.


1. Comply with regulations of cGMP, PIC/S GMP, FDA.
2. Bag filter shaking mode: double shaking. (or air purge type)
3. Contact material: SUS316L, inner polishing surface Ra <0.4.
4. Sample taking by sampling vial, for ease of sampling.
5. The material of bag filter is made of polyester fibers and stainless steel fibers with anti-static electricity conductivity cloth. Bag filter lifting by auto pneumatic cylinder.
6. Air inlet system equipped with pre-filter, mid filter, and HEPA 99.97% 0.3μ to ensure the cleanness of inlet air.
7. Critical parameter graph controlling: temperature, humidity, air flow, spray volume, etc.
8. Top spray: adopted SCHLICK modular single-head spray gun, even spray pattern and fast granulation.
9. Multi-purposes: one machine can perform multiple functions, drying, granulation, powder coating, pellet film coating, pellet enteric coating.
10. Two sets of valves are interacting automatically to fluidize the granules continuously.
