The Thermo Scientific™ Pharma 16 is a flexible twin screw extruder for hot melt extrusion and twin-screw granulation. The machine is ideal for small-scale continuous granulation and extrusion , in research, development or production in the pharmaceutical industry. Small-scale continuous twin screw extruder allows rapid process development with minimal use of expensive ingredients for defining critical process parameters. It allows for consistent, controllable processing and on-demand production with reduced cleanroom space requirements and ATEX risk. It is suitable for Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and facilitates reliable cleaning. Scale-up risk is minimized.
