The photograph at left shows the Pilot-Plant Micorencapsulation Apparatus enabling the Coplanar Annular Microencapsulating Process invented by Dr. Joseph A. Resnick, Ph.D., MPH, Professor Emeritus, Inventor.
Title of The Invention: Coplanar Annular Microencapsulation, Means, Method and Apparatus Therefore, Joseph A. Resnick, Inventor used in production of manufactures and products related to US Patent # 5,807,724.
Microencapsulation methods are separated into two categories: Chemical processes and physical processes. Examples of chemical microencapsulation processes are centrifugal force, complex coacervation, in situ polymerization, interfacial polymerization and polymer-polymer incompatibility. Examples of physical microencapsulation processes are spray-drying and spray-cooling, fluidized-bed coating, extrusion/centrifugal extrusion, liophylization, and co-crystallization. Modifications of these methods include coacervative spray, polymeric phased-separation, laser-pulsed-drop column, etc.
Typical microencapsulation processes with their relative particle size ranges are presented below:
Microencapsulation process Particle sizes in μm (micrometers)
Fluid bed coating 20–1500
Rotating disk 5–1500
Solvent evaporation 0.5–1000
Phase separation 0.5–1000
Interfacial polymerization 0.5–1000
Mini emulsion 0.1–0.5
Sol-gel encapsulation 2–20
Layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly 0.02–20
(Resnick) Coplanar Annular Encapsulation
The technology behind the Resnick Encapsulation process is mature and combines both forms of microencapsulation processes to arrive at a fundamentally-new way to produce nearly-perfectly 'round' microspheres in the gravity environment found on the surface of the Earth. The basic technology supporting the process has its foundations in programs and early prototype instruments developed by NASA in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.
The technology is listed in the NASA Spinoff Hall of Fame and is a Certified Space Technology.
This new method of microencapsulation is well suited for encapsulating biologicals, pharma's, flavorings, probiotics,
pigments, paints, etc., and can be engaged to reduce production costs (sieving, drying, etc.) thus eliminating some processing steps resulting in increased product profitability.
