Combining high-shear granulation with a fluid-bed dryer

By Chemical Engineering |

The patent-pending TwinPro system (photo) unites two previously separate processes — high-shear granulation and fluid-bed drying — in a continuous batch process. Removing wet sieving and product transfer eliminates a critical step, which results in significantly less process time and simplified cleaning, says the manufacturer. Because it fuses these two processes for the first time, the TwinPro is optimized for total-containment applications, thanks to a significant minimization of material loss. Processes are about 20% faster compared to a classic batch-granulation line, according to the manufacturer. The closed system is shock- and pressure-resistant up to 12 bars and offers reliable protection against dust explosions and in applications with hybrid mixtures. — Glatt GmbH, Binzen, Germany
