The Driaconti-T pharma Lab operates on the same principal as the company’s continuous production unit and represents the company’s response to requests from potential customers for smaller continuous coating equipment for scale up and lab testing. The perforated drum of the unit is divided into three chambers. One third of the entire film coating is applied in each chamber at the same time. Once an application is finished, all mini batches are moved by flaps to the next chamber, discharging the contents of the last chamber into a discharge container. This process allows to infinitely expose the contents of the drum to the spray media. Charging of the first chamber is accomplished by means of a loading hopper. The machine can be operated in a cycled continuous mode resulting in high quality coated products but can also be used as a batch process by activating the transport flaps only at the end of the process.
