ConsiGma®

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.

GEA ROOM Inox M1

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. 

Standard Configuration

  • One powder feeder
  • One liquid addition system 
  • Twin-screw granulator 
  • One dryer segment 

Available Options

  • Brabender or Ktron Feeder
  • Standalone GD 25 w/out dryer segment    
  • Solvent compatible 
  • Second liquid addition  
  • Lighthouse Probe® for LOD measurement  
  • Melt granulation set-up 

Main Benefits

  • Controlled granulation  
  • Less API use during R&D 
  • Fast R&D  
  • Reduced time-to-market 
  • No scale-up from GD 25/80 to GD or GC 25/500
