RAPS has revolutionised the conventional fluidised bed process using an innovative air flow bed process. The range of raw materials that could be processed and refined was limited using the fluidised bed process, but the application of the air flow bed process extends this range massively. The new technology enables fragile, irregularly shaped carrier materials with grain sizes of between 100 μm and 12 mm to be evenly coated.
Areas in which microencapsulation can be used
Products evenly coated using microencapsulation are more versatile for use in the food industry. From baked goods and confectionery, to food supplements, convenience and frozen products, all the way to meat and sausage goods, this process can be used in almost every field. It is therefore a growth-driver and an area that showcases RAPS’ technological expertise.
