The process of spheronization consists of four key steps:-
- To optimize and achieve the right binder addition & mixing time for your formulation
- Mixing or granulation - a mixer or granulator is required
- Extrusion - an extruder is required
- Spheronization - a spheronizer is required
- Drying and possibly coating - a coater and drier may be required
This is all made simple by the Caleva suite of R&D equipment shown in the section below.
Quantify the characteristics of your formulation
- Reduce your formulation development time
- Optimize the characteristics of your formulation?
- Can you confirm that the same product from different suppliers behaves differently in your formulations?
- Would it be useful to be able to quantify the characteristics of samples taken from your granulator?
A granulator/mixer, extruder and spheronizer in a single unit
- You save benchtop space, time and valuable product
- Use a 10 g to 50 g batch size in your "full size" research tool
- From powder to pellets in 30 minutes
- An optional mixing bowl and blade set is available if you need to mix high viscosity material
Quickly coat or dry a few tablets, capsules or pellets
- From a single tablet up to about 150 tablets
- From a few grams to about 60 grams of small pellets
- From a single capsule to a "small handful" of pellets
- You can reduce the amounts of ingredients used whilst still producing meaningful results
