Vobis has over 20 years experience in two primary technology areas, evaporation / crystallization and granulation / microencapsulation. These two technology programs include the design and manufacture of various evaporation systems (including WFE, SPD, forced circulation, rising film, falling film, MVR, TVR), and crystallization systems and separately granulation and microencapsulation systems (including extrusion, pelleting, matrix and core shell microencapsulations) pilot plant and production scale systems. Vobis offers capital equipment systems as well as laboratory through pilot formulation development and scale up services for both of our evaporation and microencapsulation technologies areas of specialty. We also offer production scale toll processing services that comply with the requirements of six different industries (food, industrial, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and chemical process).

Evaporation Including Falling Film, MVR, WFE, SPE, Crystallization Systems
If you need an evaporator manufactured, we have the expertise and resources to fulfill your requirements. Through our strategic alliances with major proprietary evaporation equipment manufacturers and fabrication companies, we have a team of engineers with over 100 years of combined experience directly related to consultatively determining the best technical and economic fit for our clients' applications. We will consult with you to determine the best possible options and will not hesitate to redirect you to a better provider if our experience is not relevant. We have implemented systems across the globe, from pilot scale through many ton per hour production scale. The scope of supply that we provide includes component as well as skid mounted systems. Our systems provide workable solutions for complex evaporation processes. All of our evaporation systems and fabricated components are made custom to match the client goals. We can provide a custom solution to solve a problem requiring anything from a simple single effect forced circulation or falling film evaporation system, to a multiple effect system with an agitated thin film reboiler and fractional distillation column. Our low overhead enables us to provide a very cost effective solution.
We routinely exceed our clients’ expectations in determining the best solutions to match their goals, in designing their systems, in fabricating the appropriate solution, and then ultimately in helping to oversee the installation, start up, and maintenance. We also provide fabrication only capabilities for clients who already have a design and need a knowledgeable and appropriately equipped shop to competitively deliver fabricated tanks, columns, falling film effects, agitated thin and wiped film evaporators and piping trains.
We are competitively priced, and with shops around the world, we deliver on time, every time whether delivery is to Houston, Sydney, Germany, Indonesia, or India.
Granulation Including Basket Extrusion, Pelleting, and Spheronization
Our combined 59 plus years of direct hands-on experience solving wet low pressure extrusion and medium to high densification pelleting problems for granulation clients enable us to provide system and processing solutions for both Industrial and Pharmaceutical applications areas. We provide expertise in a very broad range of mixing, wet short path, or low pressure extrusion through high pressure pelleting application areas, along with the appropriate peripherals to compliment these primary technologies. Spray drying continues to grow in importance for our diverse clientelle where we match your requirements with standard laboratory through full custom productions systems. Other capabilities include: milling, spheronization, drying, coating and formulation development. Our test centers are used to develop formulations and applicational solutions and to confirm these results in scale up in order to insure that we are providing the appropriate process solution.
Microencapsulation and Microspheres
Our design team, manufacturing, and contract manufacturing offers granulators working according to the principles of patented microsphere and microencapsulation processes. The machinery is developed, designed and manufactured from laboratory scale desktop systems, through production unit operations with more than 10,000 l/hr throughput.
We also manufacture several additional accessory technologies that compliment the microencapsulation and microsphere forming systems. Rotating drum sieving machines and vibrating sorting tables are used to sort different sized materials and separate spherical from nonspherical particles. Both systems are suitable for high throughput. For sensitive products a drying process has to keep a low delta temperature and minimize the physical stress to avoid deforming or breakup of sensitive particles. For both necessities, our drum dryers have been developed. For incubation or fusion our heating chambers can be used.
For each of our evaporation, granulation, and microencapsulation technology areas we support development and short as well as long term toll production capabilities for our clients' products with facilities and teams which can provide toll processing to meet your requirements.
We provide short path or molecular distillation toll processing services for applications as diverse as omega 3 fatty acids to isocyanates. Beginning with a free laboratory trial, progressing through pilot trials, we derive the appropriate process to meet your purity and quality requirements. Toll distillation using our molecular or short path distillation technologies for single kilogram through multiple tank truck through campaigns.
Granulation, Microencapsulation, Microspheres:
We provide free laboratory evaluations where we can determine which of our granulation technologies are most appropriate to implement for pilot and production scale. We provide contract development and formulation development when basic lab and pilot studies are insufficient. Both GMP and industrial facilities are available to match the requirements for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, agricultural, nuclear, chemical process industry, oil and gas industry needs.
