Labcoat™ Pilot Scale Tablet Coater


Versatile laboratory tablet coating systems with interchangeable pans

The 'Labcoat' tablet coater product line is a series of multi-pan laboratory tablet coating systems with interchangeable pans. A quick disconnect allows the drum to be changed in minutes, without tools.

The fully-perforated drum with a 51% open-area provides maximum air flow and high efficiency heat transfer resulting in less utility consumption. Anti-bearding spray guns significantly decrease clogging, allowing little or no operator intervention during the coating process, improving containment and decreasing the downtime. The PCA nozzle arm and air plenums of the tablet coater are designed to direct the airflow through the tablet bed with virtually no overspray. The Air-Handling Unit is self contained and intergated within the tablet coater.

The 'Labcoat' tablet coating systems are equipped with self-programming automated controls. The operating panel is a fully enclosed light touch film interface, for reliable operations. User-friendly controls require minimum operator training. Many process recipes can be memorized by the system; all of the tablet coating process parameters can be recorded and printed. 3 password level security is provided. Comprehensive sensing and alarm systems protect process quality and provide real time data.

An integrated, fast and effective wash in place systems are offered for all models of production coaters. An effective high pressure washing pump guarantees a high performance cleaning process.
