Roller Compactor BT 120 Pharma

Compaction machine for laboratory and special purpose

With the introduction of the BT 120 Pharma, Alexanderwerk offers a roller compactor designed to meet the highest requirements and standards in pharmaceutical research and development. With a throughput of up to 8 kg/h (Lactose), the BT 120 Pharma can be used for granulation of biological compounds and active ingredients.

With its highly integrated design and the extremely compact size it is the best machine available to advance into galenics. Because of its modular design, the process technology can be almost completely disassembled without special tools. Due to its cantilever bearing design the rollers can be easily cleaned or replaced. The mobile design provides great flexibility during compaction feasibility studies and allows an easy maintenance.

The BT 120 Pharma is designed to meet cGMP and its mobility is ensured due to its compact design and fully integrated control and operator panel. Moreover, previously determined process parameters can easily be scaled up to larger production machines.
