Drum coating

Solutions for coating tablets and capsules.

Drum coating is the oldest method for coating and refining pharmaceutical substances. It is particularly suited for encasing large, non-fluidizable particles such as tablets, capsules or very large pellets.

Whether your product needs to be protected from environmental influences, you need to color-code your tablets, visually improve them or want to modify the release of the active substance in a specific way, or whether you want to mask an unpleasant taste or make it easier to take your product: With this method, very different requirements can be met. However you prefer it.

The aspects mentioned under "Fluidized bed coating" largely apply to this process as well. There are only a few differences in the way the film coating material is applied. The spray equipment and a homogeneous, thorough mixing through gentle, controlled movement of the product are decisive for achieving the most even distribution of the coating material possible. The time-proven solution for refining your tablets, capsules and pellets.

Sugar coating

Sugar Coating

The classic solution for surface refining

Sugar coating means encasing a core in a sugary substance. This method is primarily used in the food processing industry. However, the pharmaceutical industry also still sugar-coats some tablets to mask the taste or improve the shelf life of a product, depending on the specific requirements.

For sugar coating we use pan coaters that are also used for film coating. A highly concentrated sugar solution, which gradually coats the product cores, is fed using a distribution rake. Feeding is periodically interrupted to allow the sugar mass to be further distributed by friction and to dry. After drying, new solution is added. The process is repeated until a stable layer of the desired thickness has formed around the core. Therefore, processing times with this method are rather long. The classic solution for coating and refining your products.

Film coating

Film coating

The efficient solution for surface refining

In contrast to sugar coating, the product core is coated with a continuous thin layer in film coating. The advantage of this process variant is the comparatively short processing time. For a higher processing efficiency.

Film coating is as effective as fluidized bed coating because, here too, large volumes of processing air are available. And the mixing baffles assist in ensuring an optimal mixing of the tablets or capsules to be varnished. V-jets ensure the even application of the film coating material onto the product bed.
