LB Bohle, the most innovative technology company in the design and implementation of machines and processes for the production of pharmaceutical solids, will return to the prestigious INTERPHEX pharma expo in New York to showcase significant advances in solid-dose manufacturing.

LB Bohle LLC will be exhibiting in booth 1101 at the Javits Center in New York City and will be showcasing two state-of-the-art machines.

QbCon 1: Unique truly continuous granulator and dryer

The QbCon® 1 is the ideal entry-level system for Continuous Manufacturing (CM), with a truly continuous wet granulator and fluid bed dryer for R&D, ensuring improved product quality while increasing flexibility and operator safety. In addition, the use of process analytics reduces resource consumption and shortens development times.

Unlike competing systems, QbCon 1 provides a permanent, truly continuous process without the formation of sub-batches and blocked filters.

Used BFC 50 on special offer

At INTERPHEX, the LB Bohle team will present a used BFC 50 TriPan with short delivery time and reduced price. This 2016 model is in perfect condition, with only about 150 hours on it, and is also prepared for high containment. Full factory warranty included.

The BFC 50 TriPan tablet coater is a flexible coating system that can operate with three pans.

Batch sizes from seven to 75 litres can be achieved by using different pans. The Bohle BFC coaters guarantee first-class product processing and excellent economic efficiency.

Continuous manufacturing technologies and comprehensive product portfolio

In addition to these two machine highlights, the Bohle team will present the latest information on its evolving technologies for continuous manufacturing.

They will also provide information on the company’s comprehensive product portfolio for weighing, dry and wet granulation, sifting and milling, tablet coating and product handling using augmented reality technologies and 3D models.

Development centre for trials and process optimisation

The Bohle team will also promote the work of the state-of-the-art US Service Center in Warminster, PA, where customers can test or optimise all steps in the tablet manufacturing process.

The centre provides pharmaceutical, chemical and nutraceutical professionals with an enhanced environment for testing and technical training, process development and optimisation, and hands-on seminars.

It is equipped with a wide range of machines, including a BRC dry granulation system, a QbCon 1 twin-screw granulation and truly continuous drying system, BFC 5 and BTC 100 lab and tablet coaters, a BTS 200 conical sieve, a BTM 150 hammer mill, LM 40 and PM 400 mixers, and a semi-automatic IBC cleaning system.
