LABORATORY TABLET COATER
PERFORATED COATING PAN | TABLETS AND PELLETS | LAB SCALE
Tablet coating is a covering (film coating) that is applied to the surface of a particle or a tablet for different purposes. The motivation for coating dosage forms range goes from:
■ Colour and gloss.
■ Improving the stability (light protection, moisture and gas barrier)
■ Making it easier to swallow the tablet.
Also, functional coatings can be used to modify the drug release behavior from the dosage form. Depending on the polymers used it is possible either delay the release of the drug or use the coating to sustain the release of the drug from the dosage form over extended periods.
Laboratory Tablet Coater with perforated coating pan designed to produce the film coating of tablets or pellets, suitable in aqueous and organic coatings.
Innovative high-quality equipment certified by accredited entities.
Fully designed and built in Europe following regulatory requirements and the GMP normative.
Used for new product development, with a technology that easily allows changing to a pilot scale. And also provides useful information for industrial batches.
The standard equipment is suitable to work with interchangeable drums from 0,5 to 2 Kg.
Special drum execution is available to produce small batches for coating pellets.
The Laboratory Tablet Coater controls each critical variable which is decisive for the dynamic equilibrium, such as:
■ Applied liquid flow.
■ Inlet airflow.
■ Exhaust airflow.
■ Inlet and exit air temperature.
■ Tablet temperature during the process.
■ Turning speed of the pan drum.
More and more it is important to optimize processes before industrialization. Obviously to minimize time and cost risks. In STE we have a pilot plant for testing purposes with all equipment on a pilot scale. This facility allows the client to perform a complete scaling-up for each process.
STE TECPHARM offers all range of services: installation, integration within the client facilities, start-up, qualification, training, and production support.
