The unit is developed by Bosch subsidiary Hüttlin GmbH
Bosch Packaging Technology will introduce the new granulation unit, GranuLean at Achema 2015 to be held in Germany from June 15 to 19, 2015.
Developed by the Bosch subsidiary Hüttlin GmbH, it combines the process steps of mixing, granulating and drying for the manufacturing of pharmaceutical granules.
"The name GranuLean stands for a lean and compact machine, which can be easily integrated into production rooms and focuses on the basic requirements of pharmaceutical producers. By concentrating on the essential basic functions within fixed dimensions, we have developed an especially efficient granulation solution," said Mr Fritz-Martin Scholz, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology.
The GranuLean for instance saves valuable production room with its 6 meters length and 3.4 meters height. The new development is available for three different batch sizes and is based on Hüttlin's long-standing process technology experience.
As opposed to tailor-made granulation lines, the most important functions of GranuLean are installed by default. "The high level of standardization now enables us to fulfill customer demands for a complete and quickly available system at the accustomed high quality," said Mr Scholz.
