Fluid Bed Dryer - Granulator


NicoBed TM Fluid Bed Dryer - Granulator combines unique design with unmatched granulation performance. Our system has achieved worldwide success in both the Pharmaceutical and API industries. 

NicobedTM unique TWISTERTM design which pushes the air in controlled motion through the product bed. In this way it guarantees uniform granulation and reduced process times.

The winning key of our fluid bed dryer with the TWISTERTM system, it. Patent pending, is the right combination of an accurate controlled air direction flow with the exact air speed to minimize the pressure drop in the fluid bed,  to ensure a perfectly balanced process preventing granule agglomeration and allowing a uniform and fast growing of the granule with low and controlled
moisture residual. The TWISTERTM action, with low pressure drop, improves the efficiency of the filters of the dryers and allow very fast process.

Fluid bed dryers can be provided with automatic dosing system for binding solution.  Unique "AIR BUBBLE SYESTEM " guarantee even distribution that does not require size calibration.

Fluidized bed drying process is controlled with a balanced drying system, air flow controlled by means AC frequency control and monitoring on line humidity inlet out let air.

Our design allows an easy validation process. Clean-in-place either through a built in system or through CIP WIP movable Skid TM

Our fluid bed can be designed to be installed in high containment granulation lines for both R&D labs or production.

High Shear Mixers - Granulators


Dry powder mixing, wet powder mixing and granulation can achieve high performance with our unique planetary mixer, the "NicomixerTM". It is an high shear mixer - granulator, can be provided with both automatic and manual dosing system for powders or binding solution.

The NicomixerTM line of granulating equipment combines 3-blades impeller with design able to ensure a very good movement of the granules even at low speed. The blade tips of the granulator are positioned tangentially to avoid any dead spots.

Our line of granulators design allows for perfect and uniform granulation thanks to the Tulip design of the bowl that also allows to work from 30-40% up to 100% of the batch size.

Our rapid mixer design allows a perfect and uniform granulation. It's easy to validate, clean in place either through a built in system or through Nicomac CIP WIP movable Skid TM. Our rapid granulator can be designed to be installed in high containment granulation lines for both R&D labs and production.
