Extrusion-Spheronization Process

Extrusion-Spheronization Process

Wet granules and agglomerates are fed into the extruder hopper. 

The wet granulation is pushed by the rotating horizontal extruder auger to the conical die plate at the end of the column forming extrudates which fall into the spheronizer. 

The spheronizer grid plate spins to change the form of the extrudates so they are rounded off to become finished spheres or beads. 

These spheres can then be dried and/or coated in a fluid bed and then made into tablets or filled in capsules.
