The Bohle-Tablet-Coater BTC

In addition to the established coating systems (like the BFC and the BFC TriPan), Bohle developed a new coater to face the market needs, the Bohle-Tablet-Coater BTC.

In addition to the established coating systems (like the BFC and the BFC TriPan),Bohle developed a new coater to face the market needs, the Bohle-Tablet-Coater BTC. The new coater combines all the key features and advantages of the high-end Bohle-Film-Coater BFC in an economical package. The BTC provides unparalleled tablet consistency and efficiencies resulting in a high speed, problem-free coating.

Bohle’s patented air flow design within the coating pan reduces the likelihood of spray drying. The inlet and exhaust air flows are guided through the tablet bedproducing a constant flow within the bed and minimizing turbulence above the bed.

The air flow is cooled while in the tablet bed and not in the spray zone. Spray drying is virtually eliminated resulting in minimal coating solution loss, uniform tabletsurfaces and a high quality, defect-free film coat. The BTC incorporates a smaller diameter, elongated coating pan with unique mixing baffles. This pan design offers an increased tablet spraying surface area allowing for the delivery of more suspension solution.

The advantages of the Bohle Tablet Coater:

  • Fast, problem-free coating
  • High uniformity
  • Up to a 35% shorter processing time in comparison to conventional coating systems
  • Gentle tablet handling
  • Minimal spray drying and increased coating efficiency (low loss of suspension, no “twins”)
  • Fast and easy tablet discharge
  • User-friendly software
  • Optional WIP cleaning
  • “Through the wall” installation
