Precision Coater - Patented
Precision coating of small particles such as powders, granules, crystals, pellets and small tablets
The Precision Coater(Patented) offers precise coating of particles from 50 - 5000µ. The coating liquid is sprayed up into to a fluidized bed which uses advanced fluid dynamics to control the flow and achieve a high degree of coating uniformity.
Capacity: from 200g to several ton/batch
Cost-effective pellet coating
In the Top Spray Coater, particles to be coated are suspended in the fluidized bed, and the coating liquid is sprayed down on to them from above.
Capacity: from 50g to several ton/batch
Granulating and spheronizing a powder mixture
The active substance is mixed with 5-30% microcrystalling cellulose and the mixture granulated with water or an organic solvent. The granules are then compacted and spheronized. This operation can be performed using the Roto - Processor or Pellet - Processor.
Efficient continuous coating of fine powders
The GEA Niro Pharma Spray Dryer is used to coat fine powders. The particles are suspended in a polymer solution, then spray dried.
Capacity: up to several ton/hr
