Modelling and Control of Fluid Bed Granulation Processes

09:30 - 10:05

Fluidized bed processes are a complex equilibrium between thermodynamics, hydrodynamics and atomization.

A simple model based on mass and heat balances on the equipment is proposed to find the perfect alchemy to control granulation, coating and drying processes in Fluidized bed.

3 cases studies:

  • Application to a granulation process
  • Application to a coating process
  • Application to a drying process
