    Drug layering equipment for pharmaceutical active ingredients
    15th February 2017

  • Drug layering equipment for pharmaceutical ingredients involves depositing the drug on the surface of a substrate. The most common way of depositing the drug on the substrate is by using air-suspension coating.
  • In the process of drug layering an active substance is layered as a powder onto cores. There are various methods for durg layering such as Fluid Bed Rotor, Coating Pan, and Solid Drug Layering technology. Sustained or controlled release formulations often use powder coating technologies for the production of pharmaceutical products.
  • These processes are characterized by the deposition of a uniform film onto the surface of a substrate. The active ingredient can be dosed in powder form simultaneously spraying a solvent, sprayed as a suspension or a solution.
