K3 Pharma Loss-In-Weight Feeder (PH-QT35)

Coperion K-Tron's K3-PH line of feeders has been specifically designed to meet the growing demands of continuous processing in the pharmaceutical industry. The new feeder design features a modular concept complete with a drastically reduced overall footprint thanks to a new, smaller D4 platform scale incorporating the patented and highly accurate Smart Force Transducer (SFT) weighing technology. The modular quick change design allows the easy exchange of feeder types and sizes as well as hoppers or agitators using the same scale and drive for fast adaptation to new processes and formulations while also ensuring easy cleaning and maintenance. The new design is ideal for multi feeder clustering in a variety of continuous processes, including direct compression (CDC), continuous extrusion, wet and dry granulation, and continuous coating, as well as traditional batch processes.

MT16 Twin Screw Tablet Press Lubricant Feeder

The Coperion K-Tron tablet press feeder offers an automated, nearly constant feed rate, providing a uniform coating of the tablet tools and avoiding sticking problems. This external lubrication provides many additional potential benefits to manufacturers of tablet dosage forms including improving tablet hardness and dissolution properties.

P30 Vacuum Sequencing Sanitary Powder Receiver

The Coperion K-Tron P-Series receivers provide a sanitary, custom solution for difficult conveying applications. The sanitary design is perfect for applications in the pharmaceutical industry. The P-Series receivers are constructed of stainless steel and features include steep cone angles to ensure excellent discharge and band clamps for quick disassembly. With the choice of various discharge valve types (powered flap and active driven butterfly valves) the P30 can be used for conveying only applications such as hopper loading, as well as loss-in-weight feeder refill applications, where the receiver is not always emptied completely. Conveying rates vary depending on model, product characteristics and conveying distances.

Typical materials include flakes, free-flowing to poorly flowing powders, and materials requiring gentle conveying.

Pharma Extruders - NOT ON DISPLAY, but let's talk at the show!

We will not have a pharma extruder on the show floor, but our extrusion experts will be at the booth to discuss Coperion pharma extrusion technology.

Continuous extrusion via twin screw extruders for pharmaceutical solid dosage form production is growing in popularity as a preferred option to more traditional granulation techniques. Coperion is a pioneer in the development of high-end closely intermeshing, co-rotating twin screw extruders, beginning with laboratory scale and extending to continuous pharmaceutical production systems.
