This equipment is design to create a uniform coating of tablet with an organic solvent, aqueous or enteric coating. It is mainly used in the pharmaceutical industries and the food industries. The equipment conforms to the good manufacturing standards and has a high level of efficiency in operation.
Operation of the Tablet Coating Machine
The application of the coating material is done on a continuously moving bed of tablets. There is a system that also ensures rapid removal of the solvent using a hot air current. Product to be coated are placed in a closed drum, that is in continuous orbital motion , and the coating system sprays the coating material evenly in rotating motion to avoid excess deposit on the tablets.
This machine from Bhagwati Pharma Company is designed with energy saving features as well as able to operate hygienically and maintain a clean environment. It is also used in coating of pills and candies in specialized operating processes.
It is not economical to coat tablets just for the sake of it.
This will not make any economic sense.
- Cover unpleasant taste, color or odor
- Prevent degradation of chemical composition of the tablets. There are certain chemicals that react/degrade on exposure to moisture, ultra-violet light or air.
- For easy identification
- Make blistering easy
- Control drug release, amongst others.
