Tailor-made Product Attributes

Mark Riemer of SternMaid GmbH & Co.KG explores fluid-bed technology, a formative drying process enabling a specific influence on the physical properties of solid and liquid products and their possible applications. Fluid-bed technology opens up an enormous range of possibilities for optimising products – from better solubility, dust reduction, easier tabletting and fortification with vitamins to microencapsulation of active ingredients. Very gentle handling of the products and the diversity of the possible applications have made fluid-bed processing one of the most important formulation methods in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
