One of the most frequently used pharmaceutical forms for sustained release applications are capsules filled with micro pellets in spherical, semi-spherical and lenticular shapes (approx. 1.5 - 3 mm). The pellet size depends on the formulation and the process parameters.
In combination with Leistritz pharmaceutical extruders, the redesigned LMP 2.0 produces micro pellets in a continuous process. The pellets are cooled off and transported in a circulated air stream. The handling of this device is very convenient. For an effective pressure build up as well as a better melt distribution at the die, a melt pump can be easily integrated. More homogeneous pellets are the result. The LMP 2.0 can be run with or without melt pump.
The LMP 2.0 is available in two versions: for the extruder sizes ZSE 18 HP-PH and ZSE 27 HP-PH.
