PROCEPT / MPG
Plasma Fluid Bed Coater
Breaking the boundaries of powder treatment
PROCEPT and Molecular Plasma Group have joined forces and setup our joint venture PartiX to bring functionalisation and encapsulation of powders to the next level.
What type of molecules can we inject?
There is no restriction on the type of organic chemistry. Pure liquids, mixtures, emulsions, suspensions of nanoparticles, or polymer solutions.
Plasma Fluid Bed Coater Specifications

“Partix” atmospheric plasma technology offers an innovative approach to more sustainable surface treatments by injection of simple chemical building blocks into a reactive plasma environment, eliminating the use of solvents and drastically reducing the number of processing steps. The research at VITO is focusing on surface modifications of materials for batteries. Results are great and will be published soon!”.
The PROCEPT / MPG Plasma Fluid Bed Coater
The plasma fluid bed coater equipment is a unique combination of PROCEPT’s fluidized bed reactor and Molecular Plasma Group’s PlasmaSpot.
It is normally integrated on a trolley with the touch screen computer attached to a swing arm which can be positioned according to the operator’s preference.
Introducing new possibilities for surface functionalization and encapsulation.
With organic chemistry and biomolecules.
Touch screen PC control with real-time trending and excel data reporting.
Single step, dry surface process.
Nanometric and micrometric layers (single molecule and upwards).
Water-sensitive, temperature sensitive substrates (cellulose, sugars, salts, acids, …).
No solvents, no drying, no incubation time,…
Dramatically shorter process times (10x to 100x)
Critical process data such as heating & cooling temperature setpoints, plasma voltage are handled by the control unit.
Flexible & future proof technology.
Easy in-process sampling.
Controlled release layer
Imaging & diagnostics
Covalently bound drug
