Balchem Product and Process Solutions
A successful partnership relies on two things – innovation and communication. Innovation taps into new technologies to create a product that is consistently high in quality and performance. Communication helps ensure that the entire process runs smoothly by making sure important requirements and deadlines are met.
Balchem Ingredient Solutions can help ensure all of this and more. Our industry expertise paired with our extensive background in powder application, formulation, flavor and nutraceutical delivery systems allows us to engineer the most innovative products on the market.
Technology That Delivers
Whether you’re looking to develop a new powder or simply needing to perfect your current powder’s performance, you need proper formulation and application support. We offer innovative technologies to optimize the dispersion and dissolution of your product when mixed with liquids.
We’re best known for our fluid bed batch agglomeration capacity. This technology can be deployed for applications requiring particle coating, dedusting, flow improvement and density control. We also have patented encapsulation technology that allows you to coat particles, stabilize formulations, provide flavor enhancements, and protect less stable ingredients.
The Science of a Successful Scale Up
The scale up process can be one of the most challenging stages in the commercialization of a powder product. Our scale up team is a great resource in your product development, processing and manufacturing cycle.
Our Pilot Plant
Our pilot production facilities assure successful prototype development under fully optimized conditions. Integrated communication between our pilot plant, trial run staff, and manufacturing teams allow for a clean relay of information.
We begin by reviewing or designing a formula that has the optimum chance for success in the scale up process. We’ll check overall product performance parameters such as solubility, flavor profile and ingredient delivery and have them interpreted by our technical team. Prototypes are then generated in our pilot plant using an experimental approach. These prototypes help us to monitor your product and make quantitative and qualitative changes in real time.
Using your optimized pilot plant formula, we scale up to plant trial batch sizes. Meanwhile, we correlate the processing data essential for product integrity and efficient run times. After this stage is complete, you will have a solid foundation to manufacture your new product and get it on the shelf quickly.
