Twin-screw extruder ideal for medical/pharmaceutical applications

Leistritz’s newly designed GMP twin-screw extruder features precisely designed/machined hardware and controls to meet FDA validation requirements. Screws, barrels and other parts that contact the processed materials are manufactured from metallurgies that are not reactive, additive or absorptive with the product. Screw and barrels are available in modular or one-piece designs as dictated by the intended usage and required cleaning standards.

The GMP twin-screw extruder is typically used for compounding/devolatilization for medical devices, wet granulations, dissolvable films and other solid dosage forms. Machines are available with co-rotating and/or counter-rotating screws with diameters ranging from 18 to 50 mm.
