Based on the outstanding success of PharmaConnect™, the AirConnect™ has been developed by GEA to meet the pharmaceutical industry's requirements for unit operation flexibility and is based on the proven principle that a single core component can be used for numerous processes by interchanging a range of application-specific modules.
Designed to utilize the company’s market-leading fluidized bed technology, and capable of running batches from as little as 200 g to more than 10 kg, the AirConnect™ not only performs fluid bed drying, but, when combined with the class-leading Flexstream™ device, can also be used for side-spray granulation and coating. More conventional top spray granulation processes are also possible and, in addition, the AirConnect™ can be integrated with GEA’s Precision-Coater™ for bottom spray micro-pellet coating.
Furthermore, AirConnect™ is also designed to work with GEA’s ConsiGma™ continuous coater and FlexCoater™ technologies, offering rapid, high quality tablet coating functionality.
The AirConnect™ from GEA is the ultimate fluid bed processor for small-scale research and production applications. Suitable for granulating, drying and coating, the AirConnect™ accelerates and optimises product development by minimizing the amount of scale-up required to move from R&D-level batch processing to full-scale continuous production systems.
