Low-volume benchtop model is ideal for R&D and trial batch production

Offering scalable benchtop, high-performance dry granulation, the new LCS lab compaction system is a low-volume benchtop model for R&D and trial batch production.

With capacities ranging from 10g to 6 kg/hr, the new LCS is ideal for proof-of-concept work or for smallest volume production.

Manufactured with a high-precision, twin feed screw system, the LCS processes powders using the same mechanism as larger production-scale systems. This capability ensures development projects can progress to production with confidence. The available 20 kN/cm roll pressure is equivalent to production-scale systems and matches the requirement for most pharmaceutical blends. The unit features touchpad control of all independent feed and compaction variables

Complete disassembly of all contact parts enables thorough cleaning that is quick and easy.

The LCS is optionally available for containment systems. Documentation is available for cGMP validation. The LCS has a choice of roller styles for maximum processing flexibility.
