Pharma Technology Inc. (PTI), a specialty manufacturer of tablet dedusters and capsule polishers, combined with metal detectors and loading systems for solid dose production, offers the EconoFlex vertical tablet deduster for the dedusting and deburring of all tablet types.

EconoFlex features a high pressure-molded polymer spiral composed of FDA-accepted material with a closed face surface (0.5µm RA) that does not scratch or discolor and is resistant to heat and alcohol. The high-tech materials and design allow dust extraction to take place on the spiral’s outer circumference, as close as possible to the path of the tablets for optimized dedusting. The result is a higher dedusting capacity compared with traditional units.  

Among EconoFlex’s differentiating traits is the capacity for vertical height gain made possible by the machine’s design. The taller the outlet height, the larger an output container can be used, yielding the possibility of needing only one operator rather than two – even when running a double-sided tablet press or high-speed capsule filler. EconoFlex’s vertical design brings additional benefits, including a relatively small footprint, which helps save valuable space in the production room.  

EconoFlex's spiral segments are stackable and dismountable for versatility and ease of use. This spiral system also affords varying gains in height, allowing for discharge after dedusting/metal detection in taller containers or drums at least 30 in. off the floor. The machine's noise level is low, and clean-up is tool-free. In addition, EconoFlex can be combined with metal detectors.
