BFC 5: Laboratory coaters for the pharmaceutical industry

Tablet coating typically involves a combination of spraying, mixing, and drying. To achieve the best coating uniformity, all three processes must operate concurrently at the appropriate parameters. To this end, L.B. Bohle has been offering the most efficient and effective systems on the market.

As well as production-scale systems, laboratory-scale systems are also used for research and development (R&D) and process optimization.

Coating with the L.B. Bohle Laboratory Coater

The BFC 5 Laboratory Coater is designed as a versatile, stand-alone device, integrating air, electrical, and control technologies into the system.

The operator unit, featuring multi-panel visualization and a touch panel, is mounted directly on the coater. It requires both an electrical and a compressed air connection to function.

The smaller pan can be separated with a cutting disc. The pans can be easily dismantled, facilitating straightforward cleaning. For convenient discharge and transportation of the pan, a transport trolley is included.

The laboratory coater BFC 5 is suitable for batch sizes of 2 to 13 liters. This makes it ideal for research and development or for process optimization.

Flexibility: Laboratory Coater with replaceable coating drum

The BFC 5 Laboratory Coater can be operated with two pans, allowing for manual exchange.
