BACHILLER Barcelona is an industrial engineering company specialising in the design and construction of process equipment, particularly mixing and drying technology, for the pharmaceutical industry.

BACHILLER Barcelona, offer a wide range of high-quality equipment and solutions for diverse processes. These include press filtration, vacuum drying, mixing and homogenisation of solids and powers, and processing of liquids and semisolids.

With BACHILLER engineering department and test laboratory, we collaborate with our clients developing customised solutions and new processes. Together with our research and development (R&D) department, we are constantly developing our solutions to improve their performance.

BACHILLER Barcelona design and manufacture all our equipment in-house while monitoring the entire manufacturing process, from the calculation and design, steel construction, mechanisation, mechanical polishing and commissioning / start-up.

Pressure filtration for solid-liquid separation

The Nutsche Filter (FNB) and the Nutsche Filter Dryer (FNB-S) by BACHILLER are high-quality pieces of equipment designed for solid-liquid separation processes, by filtration under pressure, for the pharmaceutical, chemical, fine chemical and mining industries.

The dryer version enables drying of the filter cake without product transfer to other equipment, for all those processes that, due to the special hazardous or toxic characteristics of the products, or to prevent cross-contamination, are more preferably treated in hermetic equipment.

Vacuum dryers for diverse processes

BACHILLER Barcelona design and manufacture one of the most comprehensive ranges of vacuum dryers across the world, providing the most appropriate solution for each type of process. Furthermore, we produce all dryers following the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) recommendations, for sanitary operation and complete cleanability.

  • Sanidry (SHV) – Horizontal vacuum paddle dryer with a sanitary design

Cantilever axis and front door with full access to the equipment.

  • Supramix-S (MVC-S) – Vertical ribbon vacuum dryer

Mechanical simplicity, minimum maintenance. Heated spiral mixer in cantilever execution. Complete unloading of the product. High drying performance.

  • Turbodry (MHT-RS) – Horizontal vacuum paddle dryer and reactor

For applications of high mechanical demand, high temperatures, high pressure and/or high viscosity with similar pseudo-plastic phases.

  • Bicuum (MBC-S) – Double cone vacuum dryer

For products with fragile morphology. Mechanical simplicity, low maintenance required. Easy to clean and inspect.

  • Paddledry (MHT-S) – Horizontal Vacuum Paddle Dryer

For processes of maximum viscosity. Maximum thermal efficiency, short drying times.

  • Conical (MCV-S) – Vertical conical screw vacuum dryer

Indicated for free-flowing products, crystalline or amorphous. Low power consumption. Complete unloading of the product.

Solid and powder mixers

BACHILLER’s solid mixers can be applied to various processes, enabling flexibility for us to recommend the most suitable solution for our customers’ applications.

  • Supramix (MVC) – Vertical ribbon mixer

Mechanical simplicity, high mixing performance and complete discharge.

  • Turbomix (MHT) – Horizontal turbulence ploughshare mixer

Homogeneous mixtures in a short time regardless of the type of ingredients to be mixed.

  • Instamix (FB) – Fluidisation double shaft paddle mixer

Suitable for all kind of mixing products, especially for those with a fragile morphology.

  • Eliconomix (MCV) – Conical screw mixer

Ideal for mixing products with different densities and particles sizes.

  • Double cone (MBC) – Double cone mixer

Indicated for fragile ingredients or to mix products with similar physical characteristics.

  • V Shape (MV) – V shape mixer with rotary drum

Indicated for fragile ingredients or to mix products with similar physical characteristics.

  • Ribbon mixer (MH) – Horizontal ribbon mixer

Suitable for large batches of products with similar morphology and density.
