The Romaco Tecpharm TPR 25 Pilot mobile tablet coater incorporates all the inlet and exhaust airflow systems required for the coating process to enable simple plug & play commissioning. An all-in-one solution, the coater can be used for a range of applications, from development activities and scale-ups to the production of very small batches.
The compact coater is designed to handle batches weighing from 1 to 25 kg, making it suitable for a batch size range from 5% to 100%. The coating pan’s flexibility is made possible by fully automated processes requiring no manual adjustments.
The TPR 25 Pilot tablet coater is equipped with a Tecpharm-patented Optima spray arm, which is controlled by a sonar system that automatically adjusts the distance between the spray gun and the tablet bed. Thanks to the spray arm’s intelligence, the coater does not have to be stopped and opened to correct the spray distance while the process is running. In addition, the extendable spray arm has movable nozzles to ensure the proper spray angle in any situation.
The process air flowing through the tablet bed follows a precisely controlled path, which can be automatically adapted to the level in the drum with the aid of an exhaust flap that steplessly opens, resulting in an accurate application of the coating suspension and ultra-efficient drying of the tablet bed.
