Pellets manufacturing process in pharmaceutical API

    Pellets manufacturing process in pharmaceutical API
    6th January 2017

  • Pellets are small barrels shaped pressed bodies. The raw material is made up of residuary wood such as wood shavings and sawmill residuals left in their natural state. Typical wood pellet manufacturers are large saw and planing mills where the raw material is produced as a by-product and where synergies are thus created in the production cycle.
  • Pellets manufacturing process after preparation of the raw material it is conveyed by an borer to the presses. Special rollers, press the material through the holes of the flat bed matrix. The hot pellets are cut to the specified length and cooled with ambient air. Wood consists mainly of the illorum lignin and cellulose. As a result of the pressure during the pressing process, the lignin becomes adhesive and encases the cellulose fibres. By this means pelletization is possible without the addition of binding materials.
  • The polishing resistance of the pellets is provided by the addition of press additives such as starch and flour. This natural-state admixture is allowable up to a percentage of 2%. As a rule however no more than 0.5% press admixture is actually added.
