Continuousgranulation and drying – modularconcepts for the pharmaceutical industry



Thermo Fisher Scientific, Karlsruhe, Germany


The utilization of Twin Screw Processes in the pharmaceutical industry enables implementation of continuous processes. This article describes possibilities of Hot Melt Extrusion (HME) applications, as well as implementation of a Twin Screw Granulator (TSG) in a modular, continuous production concept.



For some time now, the debate is ongoing in the pharmaceutical industry, to establish and increase the use of continuous processes. Within many industries the continuous manufacturing is the gold standard, but this p ... ...
