Reduction Engineering Scheer introduced a new line of fully pharmaceutical-grade strand pelletizers, which are used in applications where pharmaceutical drugs are mixed with active ingredients in an extruder. Reduction Engineering sees increased demand from the pharmaceutical industry for these pelletizer systems and has entered the market.
The pharma-grade pelletizers are targeted for applications that must meet strict regulations in terms of materials of construction, cleanability and regulatory compliance and documentation, according to John Sly, Sales Manager for Reduction Engineering.
Pelletizers for these compounding processes are carefully designed and micro-polished so they have no hang-up points, which reduce the potential for contamination. The stainless steel pelletizer system is polished to a specific finish for a complete, meticulous cleaning.
The pharma-grade pelletizer is similar in design and construction to Reduction Engineering’s SGS 25 E4 and Bullet Series line, which is known for its user friendliness, fast turnarounds and high efficiency. It is available in four sizes with 1-, 2-, 4-, and 6-in. cutting widths. The pelletizer is commercially available and has been sold to both OEMs and compounders in the U.S.
