Pharma Technology Inc. has introduced an enhanced in-process tablet tester for weight, hardness, and thickness on its AIO (All In One) tablet deduster and tester system.

The AIO deduster and tester system builds upon the company’s PharmaFlex family of dedusters by offering turnkey peripheral devices as integrated solutions. The system’s sophisticated engineering affords high flexibility, while meeting high standards for output and quality of dedusting.

The AIO combines three units on one fully-GMP base. First is the PharmaFlex segmented deduster spiral that is composed of high-tech pressure molded polymer segments or 316 stainless segmented spiral (each stainless segment has a vertical height of 500mm). Second is one of the company’s three main pharmaceutical models of metal detector: Ceia, Lock, or Safeline.

The third component is a high-precision, in-process tablet tester for weight, hardness, and thickness. Following recent upgrades, the AIO’s tester now offers these features:
• Vacuum transfer (as opposed to Venturi) and filter providing dust-free transfer of samples to tester
• Tool-free dismantling of all product contact parts, for easy cleaning
• Dust-tight segregation of technical areas

The tester can be positioned on any of three sides on the deduster’s base, and offers push-fit cable-free connections for power and data storage. This creates a compactness where the need for additional vacuum conveying pipes and cables has been eliminated. The tester also contains an advanced scale generation that eliminates most manufacturing interference. The result is streamlined performance of tableting machinery – a means of directly monitoring and controlling the manufacturing process with less operator supervision.
