Compact Fluidized-bed Agglomeration System and Modular Control
Facts for Decision Makers:
- uniform product
- virtually dust-free
The newly developed ModFlex compact fluidized bed system for the continuous spray agglomeration of fine powders and powder blends yields uniformly porous, virtually dust-free, outstandingly soluble, and very easily dosed granules. The process also ensures the homogeneous incorporation of ingredients into agglomerates. The nutritional and functional properties of the ingredients are preserved during the gentle process.
Specially designed for production volumes of 100–3000 kg/h and, thanks to its compact design with space-saving filters, it is particularly suitable for use in confined spaces or rooms with low ceilings. Cleaning operations are semi-automated or fully automated, time-saving, and effective, and explosive powders can be processed safely. Depending on the application, the spray nozzles can be supplied as either top or bottom spray versions.
The company‘s next-generation process controllers, GlattView Varia, are also modular. Two standard variants are currently available, which can be customized according to customer requirements. Varia, the reasonably priced entry level version, offers a range of basic functions with the facility to upgrade at a later date.
The Varia+ is designed for highly automated systems and provides extensive information and diagnostic functions. The scalable, open SCADA system for process visualization is based on the proven WINCC and is used with the latest generation of Siemens controllers.
