Spraycoating

Fluidised bed spraycoating using the example of “micro-organisms and probiotic foods”

Coating is always used when a solid must be coated with another substance to obtain different properties or a protective cover.

Various micro-organisms (bacteria, yeast) have a positive, physiological influence. Often, they are very sensitive to environmental influences. Resistance to gastric acid can also be required. Coating with wax, shellac etc. protects the dried organism.

In addition to experience and innovative strength, AMMAG also stands for long-term relationships with employees, suppliers and customers, which are based on values ​​such as trust, respect and honesty. We can only be successful if our partners are successful and appreciate our work.
Fluidized bed spray coating is one of our core competencies. We create added value for our customers through our goal and process-oriented action. In every phase of your project, whether in the development of new products, the implementation of innovative ideas or the optimization of existing fluidized bed systems, we support you in all areas through our know-how and through quick, clear and factual communication.

Systems for fluidized bed spray coating cannot only be implemented on paper. The AMMAG company has now shown this on the basis of several realised plants. Sizes from pilot scale up to three meters bottom diameter are possible.

It is our principle to bring your specialist knowledge of your valuable raw materials and our plant engineering know-how together without any interfaces. The modular service package AMMAG Particle Systems is the ideal platform for this. You can find more information here (image video).

Coating

Further applications for fluidised bed spraycoating are:

  • whenever the solid properties do not match the desired application.

Properties of the fluidised bed spraycoating process:

  • Research and experimentation are necessary
  • Bottom spray, batch operation.
  • Coating material depending on product and application

Typical coating materials:

  • Polymers
  • Natural polymers (maltodextrin, gelatine, proteins, cellulose)
  • Waxes (melted application)
  • Resins
