Swish Tech Clean Room Solutions can supply the Nicomac NicoBed™ Fluid Bed Dryer Granulator with unmatched granulation performance. 

Fluid Bed Processor

The NicoBed™ uses a unique TWwister™ design system to push the air through the product bed in a controlled manner, guaranteeing uniform granulation and reduced process times.

The winning key Nicomac fluid bed dryer with the TWISTER™ 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 TWISTER™ 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 a binding solution. Its unique air bubble system guarantees even distribution without the need for size calibration.

Fluidised 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.

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

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