The continuous extrusion process is an economic and efficient alternative to traditional manufacturing processes for pellets, tablets and transdermal systems. Due to the modular engineering of the twin screw extruder a large number of processes and procedures are feasible using an extruder. In general they comprise the following:
- Melt extrusion
- Melt granulation
- Wet granulation
- Gel extrusion
- Cooking extrusion
- Wet extrusion
- Reaction extrusion
- Filament extrusion
These result in applications in the field of pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, food, consumer and animal health care as well as animal feed.
Leistritz Extrusionstechnik GmbH provides leading solutions for these industries. For more than three decades, we have supplied extruders to the pharmaceutical and life science industry and thus have very extensive know-how.
Depending on the combination with follow-up auxiliary equipment, the extrudates can be either intermediate or final products, resulting in granulates, pellets, films or powder.
