Committed to improving the performance and profitability of their customers’ powder processing operations, they continually invest in customer-driven innovative solutions and provide long-term support via their highly technical customer service and spare parts network.
Introducing the newest model in the roller compaction range – LCS – Lab Compaction System, a scalable benchtop, high performance model for R&D and trial batch production. With capacities ranging from 10g to 6 kg/hr, the new LCS is ideal for proof-of-concept work or for smallest volume production. Manufactured with Fitzpatrick’s high-precision, twin feed screw system, the LCS processes powders using the same mechanism as larger production-scale systems. This capability produces a compact that is comparable to that produced on full-sized models, which ensures your development projects can progress to production with confidence. The available 20 kN/cm roll pressure is equivalent to productionscale systems and matches the requirement for most pharmaceutical blends, so the results you achieve are a true reflection of a powder’s suitability for dry granulation.
