High-shear single-pot granulation has been used in the pharmaceutical industry for many decades. Single-pot granulation combines the mixing, high-shear wet granulation and drying (vacuum drying, carrier-gas drying, or microwave drying) all in one process bowl. L.B. Bohle's single-pot granulation portfolio includes R&D systems for small production volumes as well as production-scale systems.

Granulation with the Bohle Single Pot Granulator

The VMA product range includes classic single-pot granulators with agitator and chopper units and a top drive. Two stirrers produce the shearing action and loosen the product. This helps to prevent clumping and ensures that the resulting granule is of optimum quality. The GMP-compliant process bowl with a double shell is the core of the VMA.

The main aggregates are integrated in the lid of the granulation pot (top drive). The process bowl is emptied through a cone-shaped sieve (BTS 200) via the floor outlet into a container (IBC). Recipe-controlled cleaning is carried out automatically. The VMA produces batch sizes from 20 to 960 litres and can be installed in explosive atmospheres.

Benefits of the Bohle Single Pot Granulator

  • Safe production inside a closed bowl in a vacuum
  • High mixing and granulation efficiency (even for low doses of active agents at < 1%)
  • Drying at low temperatures
  • Small product contact surface for fast, easy cleaning and fast product switching
  • Efficient solvent recovery through cooling water
