Continuous processes are on the advance in the pharmaceutical industry. The major process characteristic is that the reactant is continuously infed and outfed to a machine. Th e aim is to achieve a perfect plug flow. Bohle offers continuous processes in granulation as well as in the coating segment. Coating is carried out in the semi-continuous coater KOCO® , granulation through the extruder and dry granulator BRC 25 and BRC 100, the extruder BCG and the Bohle Continuous Dryer BCD. Batch production is the alternative to continuous processes.
