Kompaktor APC L

Robust, versatile and straightforward

With the Kompaktor type L active substance mixtures are processed into granules.

This process is known as compaction, dry granulation or just granulation.

Through a special roller arrangement it is possible for the Pharmapaktor L to be cleaned easily, coupled with high press force. Roller changes can happen in less than 5 minutes!

By concentrating on the essentials the Pharmapaktor L offers a particularly good price-performance ratio.

  • Press forces up to 20 kN/cm
  • Series made of stainless steel
  • Automatic press forces
  • Good product adaptation using different rollers and feed screws

  • in case of high press forces
  • in case of frequent product changes
  • in case of small to medium batch sizes

Kompaktor ARC K

Powerful and efficient

The Kompaktor K is mainly used for powder processing in the chemical industry. However, this Kompaktor is also used in the pharmaceutical industry. Here active ingredient mixtures are processed into granules.

For this the powder is first pressed into flakes/pellets. These are often crushed with a Flake Crusher or Screening Granulator into granulate.

The Kompaktor K offers a stable, parallel roller gap over the whole press force.

A one-sided excess compression is avoided because of this. Therefore this machine is particularly suited to pressure-sensitive products.

The Kompaktor K is equipped with a press force control as standard. The quality relevant press force can be continually logged and controlled. Therefore the process can be validated.

  • Adjustable roll gap
  • Coolable rollers
  • Vacuum de-aeration
  • High throughputs up to 900 kg/h
  • Pre and secondary crushing
  • Automatic feed unit

  • Production machine for large batches
  • in the case of high press forces
  • in the case of temperature sensitive products

The throughput is dependent on the product.

Pharmapaktor APC C

A class of its own

With the Pharmapaktor C active substance mixtures are processed into granulate with the integrated granulation unit. For this the powder is first pressed into flakes/pellets. Crushing to granulate takes place in one or two stages with integrated Flake Crusher.

The Pharmapaktor C 250 has gap and screw control. Gap control takes place electromechanically and therefore is particularly low-maintenance.

The rollers are easily accessible and can be disassembled at the front for cleaning.

For the R&D sector,  as little as 50 g can be used to achieve reproducible results.

  • Gap adjustable during operation
  • Coolable rollers
  • Vacuum de-aeration
  • Small funnels for reproducible results from 50 g
  • Screw system for automatic product adaptation
  • integrated flake crusher

  • Pharmaceutical production
  • Pilot operation and development (galenics)
  • in the case of frequently changed products
  • in the case of temperature sensitive products
  • Insulator application
