Leistritz Pharmaceutical-Nutraceutical Extrusion Seminar

June 12 - June 13, 2019
111 W Main St, Clinton, NJ 08809, USA

Leistritz will host the annual Pharmaceutical-Nutraceutical Extrusion Seminar on June 12-13, 2019. This “hands-on” seminar starts with the basics and explains why twin screw extrusion is a preferred manufacturing method to manufacture consistent, repeatable products.

In addition to Leistritz staff, outside experts from industry and academia will contribute to the program. Some of the topics will include:

  • Twin screw extrusion theory and design
  • Comparison of co-rotating and counterrotating twin screw extruder technologies
  • How to specify, stage, disassemble, clean, reassemble and design screws
  • Downstream systems: pelletizing, tubes, filaments, films, molding, foamed, co-extruded parts and unique shape extrusion
  • Die design, rheological characterization and computer modelling
  • Single screw extrusion theory and designUpstream equipment designs for feeding, material handling and containment
  • Staging of unit operations in an extrusion system to facilitate a continuous process
  • Scale-up of the extrusion process – R&D, pilot scale and production
  • Cleaning and maintenance of extrusion equipment in a cGMP environment
  • Equipment and process validation practices and documentation
  • Advantages of continuous extrusion as compared to batch processes
  • Mixing techniques for poorly soluble and heat/shear sensitive API’s
  • New emerging extrusion technologies, i.e. supercritical foaming and co-extrusion
