The Original Wurster Fluid Bed Technology Source

Coating Place, Inc. has been the leader in Wurster fluid bed coating since our founding in 1976. Wurster coating, synonymous with fluid bed microencapsulation, is the encapsulation of discrete particles in a fluidized bed using bottom spray application. Differential air streams move the bed of particulate upward inside the chamber as it is coated with a material to create a core-shell structure. This Wurster fluidization process is named after its inventor, Dr. Dale E. Wurster, Ph.D. Though other companies may be capable of providing fluid bed coating services, Coating Place is the only company that can offer fluid bed microencapsulation services with a direct link to Dr. Wurster’s original equipment design, linear scalability, and immense depth of formulation experience.

Coating Place has the most comprehensive and modern Wurster facilities for developing your new product, troubleshooting an existing product problem, or simply expanding your production capacity.
