This course covers important topics related to powder and bulk solid flow in bins, hoppers, and chutes. Participants will participate in a full-scale test laboratory practical session on bulk solids handling.
Several solid-dosage drugs are now approved for manufacture using continuous processes, and early adopters and equipment manufacturers have been making progress in addressing engineering challenges.
At this year's Interphex (April 2 to 4, 2019, booth 2558, New York/USA) as well as at Powtech (April 9 to 11, 2019, hall 4, booth 4-290, Nuremberg/ Germany) Coperion K-Tron will display the next generation of its highly accurate, gravimetric K3-PH feeders for the pharmaceutical industry.
This course teaches the process principles of the functional operation of the ZSK twin screw compounder in pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion. We deal with the special fields of application in detail and present the latest Coperion developments. You also receive information about the scale-up process, troubleshooting and interlocks.
On behalf of Coperion and Coperion K-Tron we would like to inform you of the upcoming course provided by Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center.
Coperion and Coperion K-Tron announce the launch of the NEW Traveling Equipment Display (TED). The mobile display begins traveling directly to bulk material handling facilities throughout the United States early October and will bring the latest solutions for feeding, pneumatic conveying, complete systems, components and extruders right to the customer’s doorstep.
At this year's Pack Expo conference Coperion and Coperion K-Tron will exhibit a variety of advanced feeding and conveying solutions for handling bulk solid materials at Booth S-2988.
Coperion GmbH, Stuttgart, Germany, has launched a completely flexible continuous pharma extrusion system suitable for research and development, as well as for small-scale production.
Coperion K-Tron, Niederlenz, Switzerland, has added new features to its proven K-Vision software. The K-Vision controller is a graphical operator interface for controlling multiple devices such as feeders or feeder refill (vacuum receivers) in a process.
This article defines the items necessary for accurate feeding and outlines the important role that accuracy can play in the end product and process quality of any continuous operation.
In order to maintain the highest standards of safety, sustainability and hygiene, it is essential that these powders are moved from process to process without any danger to the operatives.
Vacuum loading of blenders typically falls into two categories: indirect loading via pneumatic sequencing systems or direct loading, where the blender becomes the primary vacuum receiver.
Coperion K-Tron volumetric feeders are often used in a simplified gain-in-weight (GIW) application for controlled batch dispensing and weighing of pharmaceutical powders.
Twin screw feeders can provide consistent and metered delivery of dry powders, directly into coating equipment.
Twin screw extruders offer several advantages as a method of granulation formation including continuous processing with reproducibility and combination of a variety of process steps within one piece of equipment.
The emergence of the continuous philosophy used in the blending operations of either direct compression or dry granulation offers several key technical and process advantages.
Which process and equipment is best for your size reduction application.
It is imperative with any continuous process that the overall material delivery and process feed components be tightly integrated, as the quality of the process is entirely dependent upon this coordination.
Which concepts and equipment are best for the loading of excipients, active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), and lubricants into intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) and other large vessel devices?
Improve the quality of product and realize containment advantages with the use of conical screen mills.
The use of either dense or dilute phase vacuum transfer can be applied to tabletting operations such as the loading of blenders, sifters, mills, capsule fillers, tablet presses, and even tablet and capsule handling without damage to the finished product.
This adapted design features the addition of a specialized gas venturi for aspiration of the lubricant direct to the tablet press.
Consider these seven key parameters when selecting vacuum conveying technology.
An efficient feeding system can offer significant return on investment thanks to higher accuracy and better control, despite the higher initial capital investment.
An introduction to the principles and practices of bulk solids feeding.
The Coperion K-Tron feeding systems are a key part of the new continuous production concept. At Pfizer, the compact arrangement of pharmaceutical feeders supplied by Coperion K-Tron accurately deliver ingredients into the continuous mixing process, thereby guaranteeing consistent and very high quality end products.
Coperion K-Tron provided the continuous loss-in-weight feeders and material handling equipment for each of the Lilly facilities and worked closely with the Lilly team in the integration and design of the feeder system.
