Learn from the experts:
Continuous pelletitzation by fluid bed spray granulation


Our digital and interactive Workshop No. 4! Giving you practical insights from the comfort of your home-office or workplace. You missed the workshop? Register now and watch the recording!



This workshop on fluidized bed technology is a perfect combination of theory, hands-on training and demonstrations. The workshop provides the basics of drying, granulating, coating and pelletizing and outlines their applications in the powder processing industry. This workshop is the perfect investment for those who wish to acquire knowledge of fluidized bed technology.


Typically, operators, formulators, product designers, and researchers from the pharmaceutical, food, fine-chemicals, and related industries will get the most out of this workshop. However, the workshop is also perfectly suitable for those who are looking for a detailed overview of the continuously operating fluidized bed process technology in a short period of time.


On the one hand, increasing international competition is forcing companies to optimize their manufacturing and R&D processes. These trends increase the demand on improved quality and efficiency especially for the processing of consistently shaped and “performing” solids (granules, pellets, etc.). On the other hand, it is absolutely necessary to know and understand the processing dynamics of powders, granules, pellets and to find the most effective processing solutions which can deliver consistent product properties. There are few options to obtain a perfect mix of theoretical and practical training. We bridge this gap between business and education with our decades of experience in the manufacturing and by the use of production equipment. What makes our specialized training so special is


This workshop aims to elaborate on the advantages and drawbacks of the individual techniques, focusing on the optimal spectrum of each, but also considering the economical and practical aspects of manufacturing processes. All speakers are specialized, experienced, and renowned experts from science and industry.

Granulation, Agglomeration, Pelletization – Basic principles and applications
The presentation provides an overview on fundamental differences between various product structures, like granules, agglomerates and pellets, as well as on their application in regards to their properties. Additionally, an insight into the general set-up of typical process equipment is given. The presentation is completed by an overview of the particulate systems produced in industrial scale fluidized bed processes.
