In a Fluid Bed Dryer it is possible to mix various powders together due to the turbulence created by the action of the air.

The introduction of a binding solution can then cause the particles to agglomerate together. Agglomeration takes place when the surface of the particles partially dissolve and stick together. If the particles will not dissolve, then a binding agent must be added to the solution to be sprayed into the bed.

This versatility makes the Spray Granulator ideal for rapid, even drying of chemical, pharmaceutical and food industry products. Further applications include the production of granules suitable for compression, or with free-flowing properties suitable to the requirements of particular industries, e.g. – food vending.
