Coating of micron-sized particles (host particles) with nanoparticles can result in modifying the surface properties of host particles leading to various applications. This work presents a novel concept of combining the electrospraying of nanoparticles onto the charged particles entrained out of the fluidized bed for developing a continuous coating process. By controlling the processes to effectively charge and contact particles using electric forces, we are able to fine-tune the properties of the obtained nano-coated particles.
