Pelletisers / Preformers
For Multi-Material high output tabletting
High specification tables in any material
BIPEL has manufactured Pelletisers / Preformers for over 30 years. Design refinements have created a machine which will produce the highest specification tables from most materials. If a material will compact and hold under pressure it will tablet using BIPEL Pelletiser.
Horizontal action creates high output.
BIPEL Pelletisers / Preformers use a horizontal pressing action which means formed tablets fall by gravity into an off-take system reducing the off loading time and maximizing output.
Huge range of tablet shapes and sizes
BIPEL Pelletisers/ Preformers can produce round tablets from 10mm to 120mm diameter. When fitted with suitable dies; cube, lozenges, cylinders and many other shapes can be formed including tablets with a centre hole. Dependant upon the material being processed, logos and trade names can be impressed on the tablets.
Close Tolerance Tablet weight
For most tablet production it is important that tablet weight are consistent. In most cases BIPEL Pelletiser volumetric control system gives a shot weight tolerance of +/- 1%. If a greater degree of accuracy is required or the material is unsuited to volumetric control, special equipment is interfaced so material can be does gravimetrically.
Consistent Tablet Density
Even Compaction throughout the thickness of a tablet is required to ensure lamination does not occur on tablet ejection.
The controls of the BIPEL Pelletiser / Preformers allow the tablet die to “float free” as pressure is applied. The forces exerted during the pressing phase are equalised (as in double acting press) and the material is evenly compacted throughout.
BIPEL Pelletisers / Preformers are constructed so the leading edge of both fixed and moving punches sweep the full length of the die at each stroke. This helps clear away powder and prevents the “caking up” of material which leads to jamming and breakage.
Powerful PLC control
BIPEL Pelletisers / Preformers are controlled by a PLC housed in a dustproof enclosure. The electronic position sensing system works via a transparent window to allow the integrity of the enclosure to be maintained. This powerful PLC system enables a range of special sequences to be set to cater for the special processing required by some materials.
BIPEL Pelletisers / Preformers are in daily use in many industries
