Mixing and fluid bed granulation

A mixing & fluid bed granulation system is the combination of a fluid bed dryer and a high Impact mixer. If you have a high-capacity continuous powder process where you need to mix various powders with liquids, agglomerate and then dry the granules, such a combined system may be the best way to go.

Continuous mixing, agglomerating, drying and cooling

The Schugi® Flexomix agglomeration system is a combination of two proven Hosokawa Micron technologies: the Flexomix continuous mixer and agglomerator, and the Schugi® fluid bed dryer and cooler. This combined design provides optimal process control and makes this combination the ultimate powder processing solution. The system is controlled using a state-of-the-art integrated control system based on PLC and SCADA systems. It produces instant agglomerates with an open, raspberry-like structure, good solubility and good flow characteristics. Moreover, it has been designed as a stationary unit without any moving parts making it perfect for scaling up to almost any size. The system is suited for powders, granules, agglomerates, and pellets. Often used in the food industry, pharmaceutical and chemistry.
