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.

K-Tron
