Coating processes can be shortened and made more consistent by adding dry air.
Regardless of the season, the climate conditions in the coater will be stable all year round thereby securing optimal conditions. Hereby the productivity increases and energy costs are cut by 10-15%. The risk of contamination of the conditioning system by any wet return air would be eliminated by using a Munters Desiccant dehumidification system.
Coating of capsules, granules, sweets and tablets is applied using a water based process with the coating suspension sprayed over the pieces of product in a rotating pan. Desiccant dehumidified dry air is blown on or through the bulk product to evaporate the moisture and allow the coating to dry on the base.
- Year-round consistent production
- Production increase of 15-20%
- Shorter drying times
- Easier to comply with GMP regulations
- Typical energy savings of 10-15%
- Mixing moisture regain is prevented
The Munters dry air system is the simplest, most precise way of achieving and controlling the accurate humidity conditions required.
