At the 7th European Drying Conference Dr. Michael Jacob, Head of Process Engineering, Glatt Process Technology Food, Feed & Fine Chemicals, will give a lecture about "Process analytical technologies for inline control of fluidized bed agglomeration".
Fluidized bed spray agglomeration makes products easier and more safe to handle, better to dose, better in homogeneity. An automatic control system for fluidized bed granulation requires research into a complex and validated process and product model. To link input data with product parameters, the concept of artificial neural networks is used. The paper shows actual status of research activities at Glatt using a case study of agglomeration of materials to be further processed by tableting.
