    Extrusion and spheronization for manufacturing micro pellets
    18th February 2017

  • Extrusion and spheronization is one of the oldest techniques for manufacturing micro pellets in Umang Pharmatech. Umang pharma production process of pellets such as granulation, extrusion, spheronization, and drying.
  • In the second part is the parameters which can influence the quality of pellets including formulation granulating liquid, excipients and drugs equipment - mixer, extruder, friction plate, and extrusion screen and process extrusion speed, extrusion temperature, spheronizer load, spheronization time, spheronization speed, and drying method are discussed.
  • In the pharmaceutical industry, pellets of medium particle sizes from ( Give the size please ) micrometers are used for most applications. In other industries, the size of the pellets can be several centimeters, Just the way you need it.

API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) manufacturing requires that special attention be paid to processing equipment design, hygiene and safety.

Pellet processing is accomplished with several of our products, including the Axial, cone, Radial, Die roller, mixer cum extruder, basket models.

Umang Pharmatech® advanced pellet technology and superior engineering provide unparalleled processing efficiency exceptional product quality

Successfully scaling up to full production means replicating your pilot results. How do you do this? The key is to use lab milling equipment that exactly

Particle size is a critical parameter in material properties. Monitoring and measurement of grain size distribution during processing is critical to successful product.



A Fully integrated Continuous drug pelletization system consisting Extruder (Axial | Cone | Dome | Radial | Die Roller | Basket extruder etc.) with twin bucket weight assembly

The operation is carried out using a Drug layering rotating plate, Dry powder dusted on nonpareils adheres, increasing their size and forming larger pellets. As per requirements.

Continuous Tray Dryer Designed for continuous & rapid drying process. Tray Drying is certainly one of the most energy-intensive operations in industries, and as most dryers operate

Mini - Lab is a table-top fluid bed for laboratory use, sized for product volumes from 100 ml to 700ml. It is ideal for handling fine powders, pellets, granules, crystals and also tablets.

Hot Melt Extrusion is the upgraded version of Twin screw Extruder with heating as an element, the whole process involves hopper for feeding the raw material
