Process machines for containment applications - Application examples

Film coater – BFC in the containment version

Since they entered the market many years ago, the Bohle BFC tablet coaters have represented a significant technological advancement and provide optimal product processing at maximum profitability. L.B. Bohle has created various BFC series containment coaters that have been customized to customer requirements.

The containment version of the BFC 100 tablet coaters enables operation in closed driving mode thanks to:

  • An automatic nozzle adjustment (stroke and angle)
  • Connection for cleaning the containment valve and the charging pipe (optionally also during discharge)
  • Connection for drying the containment valve and the charging pipe
  • Feeding via a containment valve
  • Removable nozzle holder. This results in great advantages when it comes to cleaning
  • Sampling lance
  • Side doors with inflatable seal (also standard for the film coater BFC)
