Fluidised bed and spouted bed processes by Glatt offer manufacturers almost unlimited possibilities in terms of optimised particle design and the functionalisation of ingredients, the properties of which can be fine-tuned using spray granulation, agglomeration, microencapsulation and film, lipid and hotmelt coating.

Sensitive raw materials, especially those that are volatile or of natural origin, require particularly gentle process conditions. Spray granulation, spray coating and (micro)encapsulation procedures have proven to be methods of choice, as they enable high yields, low temperatures and bespoke properties.
Innovative Process Technologies for Customized Functional Ingredients and Beverage Powder Mixes: At the 27th International Exhibition for Food, Beverages, Food Raw Materials in Moscow, Glatt will present innovative fluidized bed and spouted bed technologies to dry, agglomerate, granulate and particle coat various ingredients for sophisticated applications. These ingredients may require specific particle sizes or shapes, optimum solubility, compressibility or the functional protection provided by active ingredients or improved stability via protective coatings.
Essential oils are volatile substances that are susceptible to oxidation and light. For protection and easier handling, as well as for better dosing and targeted release properties, these substances are increasingly offered and used by various industries in an encapsulated and often free-flowing form.
