Brabender Pharma
Tabletop twin-screw extruder features easy cleaning.

Brabender Pharma’s PTSE 12/36 EC tabletop, 12-mm pharmaceutical twin-screw extruder is suitable for hot-melt extrusion (HME), early formulation development, and preparation of samples for clinical studies. The more compact addition to the company’s product line enhances the ability to address the challenges of HME in feasibility studies. The extruder has a removable barrel liner and a horizontally split barrel to allow quick access and ease of cleaning and sterilization. Two additional openings can be used as downstream feeding or venting ports. Segmented screws can be configured to customer specifications and optional ports can be added on request.

Micro-ingredient feeder has high accuracy for low feedrates.

K-Tron’s low-rate, micro-ingredient feeder line now includes the MT16 with a 16-mm feed screw and a overall feedrate capacity of 0.02 dm³/hr to 27 dm³/hr. The feeder is ideal for applications feeding high-value additives or APIs in pharmaceutical processes that require a high degree of accuracy. The unit can be used with the MT12-mm and MT16-mm twin-screw or single-screw feeder modules. The interchangeable screws provide versatility to handle a broad range of materials. The unit has a smaller overall profile and footprint that allows for closer discharge dimensions and is ideal for multi-ingredient cluster arrangements. The design also allows for extended screw profiles. The unit is easy to take apart, clean, and maintain with a totally enclosed weight sensor.
