Gentle and safe processes – Drying and product design in the vacuum fluid bed (German article)

Dry, durable, pressure-resistant: The processing of solvent-containing extracts and temperature-sensitive substances such as microorganisms or enzymes places high demands on process conditions, occupational safety and plant safety. Vacuum fluid bed technology from plant manufacturer Glatt is another way of achieving even more temperature-friendly processes by lowering the boiling point at reduced system pressures. This benefits live cells, products with organic solvents, and also agglomerates with high strength. (article in German language)
