ConsiGma® R&D Granulation and Drying (GD)

Based on proven continuous twin-screw granulation technology, the ConsiGma® GD 25/80 has been designed for the small-scale development of continuous granulation processes.

The ConsiGma® GD 25/80 offers standalone continuous twin-screw granulation and drying for small-scale R&D operations. It allows users to develop the process and achieve high granule quality on a compact unit.

The system comprises the same twin-screw granulator as the smallest unit of the ConsiGma® GD or GS lines and a small dryer that’s similar to one of the drying segmentsThis allows you to develop your products on the same scale with product quantities starting from just a few 100 grams up to a few kilograms. The results are directly transferrable to the smallest ConsiGma® GD or GC line.

The ConsiGma® GD 25/80 is ideal for pharmaceutical companies who wish to develop a continuous granulation process before the fully integrated production line is installed.
