Continuously from powder to granulate – this new Lödige System offers several advantages:
- Less product handling and exposure
- Less cleaning
- Continuous process monitoring - PAT
- Less manpower
- Lower production cost
- Quick return on investment
Mode of operation
> Continuous Granulator CoriMix® CM
High speed mixer designed to intermix liquid or pasty components into dry powder. The high shear force introduced by the granulating tools generates a uniform wet granulate structure.
> Continuous Fluid Bed Dryer WFP
The dryer uses traditional and practice proven fluid bed technology. While beeing dried, the product is simultaneously transported by the airflow through the dryer. At the end of the machine the dry granulate is discharged for further downstream processes.
The granulator and the dryer are the heart of the Lödige continuous wet granulation line – a complete production line from powder components to the tableting-ready granulate. The line also includes dosing units, mixers, sieves and the overall control system.
Thanks to the continuous operation the product is handled only at the beginning and end of the production line. In between it passes from one machine to the other, from one process step to the next – without handling and product exposure. Less operator interaction results in a safer process and a reduction of manpower. Continuous operation also means short downtimes and less cleaning. The continuous operation allows to produce the same product at much lower cost.
Main products – amongst others - are well known analgesics as well as antibiotics.
