Ennigerloh, June 2012 –The Bohle Tablet Coater BTC stands for economic coating. Flat tablet bed, patented air system and high spray volume ensures the quality and shortens process times by up to 35 percent. With the best mixing, BTS sets standards and guarantees high uniformity of coating. At the ACHEMA 2012 L. B. Bohle Maschinen + Verfahren GmbH is presenting the BTC 100 in Frankfurt.
Three basic operations are vital for successful film coating processes: spraying, drying, mixing. Every individual step must be carefully planned and optimized in coordination with the others. L.B. Bohle Maschinen + Verfahren GmbH has continuously set standards in this area with its innovations and developments in the past years. The BTC 100 is the economic “allrounder” with a working volume of up to 160 litres.
BOHLE Coaters guarantee excellent product processing with exceptionally high profitability. The flat tablet bed with long drum geometry ensures optimal core movement. The systematic compulsory guide in the drum enables continuous product movement. There is no tablet twinning, and therefore only minor losses in solids and coatings.
Innovative concepts for processes, as well as for cleaning improve the coater functionality and deliver outstanding results. The patent air system features significant process-related advantages. The danger of spray drying of the suspension no longer exists. This reduces spray losses and improves coating structure. Tablets are handled more carefully, thanks to the pan geometry and the patented mixing elements in two directions. Through the directional change of pan rotation, tablets can be discharged completely and without containments.
Major advantages of the BTCV 100 include "through the wall installation”, integrated switch cabinet and simple and functional housing. All nozzles of the BTC are supplied with suspension via a pump head. The machine can be easily controlled and monitored as the multipanel visualization with touch panel operator unit is attached to coater.
“In pharmaceutical production we set standards with our high precision coaters”, said Lorenz Bohle. The aim is to generate new sales potentials on international markets, in addition to the German market.
