Billions of tablets are produced on a daily basis by compacting pharmaceutical powders. Pharmaceutical compactors provide a continuous process of densifying or agglomerating of various powdery and crystalline material without the need of binders or liquids.
These machines increase the bulk density of products to provide better handling and flow properties of products. Ideally suited for accurately compacting pharmaceutical powders in small quantities, these compacting machines have a product hopper for feeding the material, a horizontal and vertical feeding screw for de-aerating and pre-compacting of material. The product is finally fed into the compacting zone, where the product is trapped between the seals to prevent product leakage. Pharmaceutical machinery needs frequent cleaning, so these compactors are designed to provide easy changeover and ease of removal of rollers for process flexibility and cleaning.
