Process Principles  


Sugar coating is an effective process for the application of thick coating layers, primarily for masking taste. The syrup is sprayed onto the particles. The introduction of the process air evaporates the fluid and dries the sugar coating. When the sugar coating solution is added discontinuously, the particles remain in the process until the required coating thickness is achieved.

Glatt offers Drum Coating as a technical solution for the coating of capsules and tablets as well as different particles from the confectionery field. This enables the product to be treated gently, in particular in the case of temperaure-sensitive and fragile particles.
