Equipment and technologies

Our company manufactures finished medicines and food supplements in the following forms: effervescent tablets, uncoated tablets, resorption tablets, lingual, prolonged-action tablets, chewable tablets and other solid dosage forms.

The technological processes of tablet manufacturing are carried out under conditions of controlled temperature and humidity, which ensure the high quality of our medicines.

Direct compression is the main method used for production of tablets from powder mixtures or from micro-granules. Granulation is performed on Herbert Hüttlin Ventilus V200 granulator.

The capabilities of Herbert Hüttlin Ventilus V200 granulator enable us to obtain products with the desired properties by fluid bed granulation method and to perform coating of active substance particles used in the technologies of modified-release dosage forms. The KILIAN S250 SMART and FETTE 1200 tablet presses are used at the stage of tableting. The technology of dry injection of magnesium stearate into the tablet pressing area helps to reduce the content of sliding substances in tablets and to ensure stable pressing parameters.

Interchangeable sets with different removable format parts of the equipment allow the production and packaging of tablets with different sizes and configurations.

Three production lines can be used simultaneously for tablet manufacturing and packaging.

Tablet packaging is carried out in parallel with the tablet press operation. An automatic packaging line Marchesini MST 300 loads tablets into strips, which are then conveyed to the Marchesini MA 100 line for a secondary packaging.

The Gordic F60 packaging line is used to fill tablets into polypropylene tubes.

The Heino Ilsemann BMP-250R packaging line loads tablets into blisters, which are made of ALU/PVC/PVdC  pocket forming film layer hermetically sealed with a layer of aluminium foil. The blister line is connected with a secondary packaging unit Heino Ilsemann CMP-200.

 

Technical information:

The Servolift Lifter mixing system including BIN blender (or IBC , an intermediate container) is the best way to process, mix and transport any powdered product of less than 4000 liters. The mixing process is very simple: the products are mainly ground and mixed by continuous rotation until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.

The technical solutions of the Innojet VENTILUS 200 granulator are designed to enable the processes of granulation, coating and drying of microparticles and are based on fluid bed technology with given radial and tangential flow of process air that leads to a spiral flow direction of the product.
