Following its acquisition of Innojet Herbert Hüttlin in February 2015, Romaco is now able to offer end-to-end solutions for granulation, coating, and tableting as well as primary and secondary packaging.

Romaco Innojet enables gentle granulation and coating

Originally developed by Dr. h.c. Herbert Hüttlin, the system is based on a patented air flow bed technology that enables gentle granulation and coating processes.

Compared with conventional technologies, Romaco Innojet shortens processing times by up to 75%, according to the company’s press release. All process parameters can be scaled up linearly. The optimized process control results from the cylindrical design featuring five patented functional components: Orbiter, Vulcano, Rotojet, Lineajet, and Sepajet.

The Varioscale VS 40 system module is said to be the world’s first coating system for variable batch sizes of solid particles such as tablets, and both soft and hard gelatin capsules.

The Ventilus series was developed for granulating and coating fine solid particles as small as three millimeters in diameter. The product to be treated is agglomerated with a spray liquid and/or coated and dried, depending on the application. At the Romaco stand, the company is showcasing various processes on the laboratory scale Innojet Ventilus V 2.5. An Innojet Ventilus V 400 processing machine for a maximum batch size of 400 L is also on display along with other laboratory and pilot scale systems belonging to the Innojet Aircoater series.

Romaco launches Kilian KTP 720X for the European market

The Kilian KTP 720X high-speed, double-sided tablet press is designed for the manufacture of mono- and bi-layer tablets, with the capacity to compress up to 1,020,000 tablets in an hour. The KTP X series, which includes the Kilian KTP 420X single-sided rotary press, can be used for processing temperature-sensitive products, such as ibuprofen and metformin.

The system features optimal cleanability in mono mode and allows rapid batch changes. It measures tablet weight continuously as they are being produced. Operation is simple, with the large HMI panel, which has swipe functionality.

The STYL’ONE Evolution single-stroke tablet press is designed for formulating mono-layer, multilayer, or core tablets (tab in tab) in a broad array of R&D applications. The production process on any standard rotary press can be simulated precisely using the integrated ANALIS software. As a tableting robot, STYL’ONE Evolution can also be used in a targeted way to make manufacturing processes more efficient or troubleshoot errors.
