Course Fluid Beds: Fluidization, Granulation/Coating and Drying

Meet the Glatt experts in a course about Fluidized Bed Technology, from May 18 – 20 2022 in Phoenix Copenhagen. Part of the Seydlitz Engineering Courses

Fluid bed equipment design

Do you want to learn more about fluid bed equipment design and what options it allows in terms of dust removal and material recycling, feed and product discharge, or residence time and residence time distribution?

Lecture on fluid bed design and operation

In his lecture on ”Fluid bed granulation/coating – equipment design and operations”, Didier Schons, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, will explain these topics, presenting the differences between batchwise and continuous operation, as well as various aspects for particle and product flow. You will learn more about open and closed process gas systems as well as about the premises for the use of multi-purpose plants.
The explanations will be illustrated by means of selected case studies.


May 18 – 20 2022 / Phoenix Copenhagen
More information on the full event of the Seydlitz Engineering Courses can be found through the link under ’More information’.


Through alternating presentations, exercises and plenum discussions participants will acquire solid basic knowledge of fluid bed technology and fluidization and be able to address practical problems in these fields.

Main subjects taught in the course

  • Fluidization and classification of particles
  • Fluid bed designs -batch and continuous
  • Formulation and process considerations
  • Coating and agglomeration at particle level
  • Scale-up of fluid bed systems
  • Drying in fluid beds
  • Moisture in air and powder
  • Energy and mass balances
  • Operational problems and how to solve them

Who should attend?

The course addresses specialists, executives, technicians, planners & plant designers working in the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotech and/or food industry with manufacture or development of particle products in batch or continuous fluid bed processes such as granulation, coating, agglomeration and/or drying.

Three day online course

The course runs for three consecutive days with alternating presentations, exercises and plenum discussions. All course material is send in advance of the course.
The course is held in English.

Social event

On the afternoon of the first day the participants are invited on a one-hour guided harbour tour followed by dinner in the colourful 17th century waterfront of Nyhavn in the heart of Copenhagen.
