Pilot scale Roll Compactor is mainly used in R&D facility for the pilot batches.
Basically it consists on main structure which is made from steel SS 304 tube and separate instrument panel box. All main drive related assemblies are covered in to main structure. Complete machine is mounting on Castor wheel.
The new LAB Roll compactor machine is used for dry granulation of pharmaceutical ingredients in pharmaceutical, food as well as chemical industries for densification and granulation of powder. The dry compaction of the powder between two rollers on high pressure for increased bulk density, making granules, dust free processing and reducing packing size.

The material in form of powder passes through the two counter rotating rolls of roller compactor under very high pressure. As the volume decreases through the region of maximum pressure, the material is formed into a solid compact sheet or flakes of ingredients. These flakes or compact sheet of ingredients are reduced in size to obtain the desired grain size. The machine takes extra care to prevent the generation of fine during this process.
