Thermo Scientific Pharma 16 Twin-Screw Extruder

  • 2-in-1 process design – quickly disassemble parts for easy cleaning and process switching from HME to TSG.
  • Simple continuous process integration – plug-and-play functionality with upstream and downstream process equipment (e.g., feeders, chill rolls, pelletizers, dryers, etc) simplifies production line design.
  • Less optimization time, cost and effort – extruder process parameters are scaleable to larger Thermo Scientific extruders due to geometric similarity with minimal use of expensive ingredients.

Description

Rapidly develop pharmaceutical formulations and adopt continuous processing methods using the Thermo Scientific™ Pharma 16 Twin-Screw Extruder.  The Pharma 16 Twin-Screw Extruder can switch between continuous hot melt extrusion (HME) or wet granulation (TSG) with ease. Optimize drug process development parameters with less time and effort than batch processes and easily scale-up to larger Thermo Scientific™ extruders with using minimal amounts of expensive APIs and excipients.

Description

The Pharma 16 Twin-Screw Extruder is ideal for pilot-scale, continuous HME or TSG processes used for research, development or production in the pharmaceutical industry. Companies can bring products to market faster and with high quality by developing a continuous process for solid dosage forms compared to a batch process. Effects of pilot-scale process conditions on drug formulations for drug delivery and pharmaceutics can easily be studied using the Pharma 16 Twin-Screw Extruder.

 

Pharma 16 Twin-Screw Extruder highlights:

  • 2-in-1 process design – quickly disassemble parts for easy cleaning and process switching from HME to TSG.
  • Simple continuous process integration – plug-and-play functionality with upstream and downstream process equipment (e.g., feeders, chill rolls, pelletizers, dryers, etc) simplifies production line design.
  • Less optimization time, cost and effort – extruder process parameters are scaleable to larger Thermo Scientific extruders due to geometric similarity with minimal use of expensive ingredients.
