Perform material- and labor-effective extrusion with Thermo Scientific™ Pharma 11 Twin-screw Extruder, which requires only a small amount of active pharmaceutical ingredient, operating at throughput levels as low as 20 g/h.

The parallel 11 mm twin screws and compact design of the Pharma 11 Twin-screw Extruder is fully scalable with the Thermo Scientific stand-alone pharmaceutical compounding systems. Together, you can obtain process relevant results or even perform small scale production.

If you need a complete extrusion solution, a wide range of accessories are available for the Pharma 11 Twin-screw Extruder, including volumetric and gravimetric feeders, a conveyor belt and a pelletizer.
