A GEA Niro FSD-Granulator™ is an addition to the GEA Niro FSD™ Fluidized Spray Dryer. It produces a coarse, agglomerated, free-flowing dustless powder consisting of larger granulates than can be produced in a traditional Fluidized Spray Dryer – even when the product is difficult to agglomerate due to the lack of proper binding materials.

The concept
The GEA Niro FSD-GRANULATOR™ allows additional liquid to be added in the stationary back mix fluid bed. Depending on the requirements, the liquid added may be water or have the same composition as the feed or be a different product.


When the powder has reached a certain moisture content and the desired agglomerate size, it is discharged into a GEA Niro VIBRO-FLUIDIZER™ for final drying and cooling.
