UPPL micro pelleting expertise has been developed through matching the unique requirements of our client base during our production of several hundred extrusion systems provided for pharmaceutical and agricultural applications. It is typical that the smaller the extrudates required below 500 microns are the more difficult it is to maintain low sheer, high capacity, and continued extruder operation without blinding. UPPL has overcome these difficulties with our unique Micro Pellet die designs available for our Cone, Radial and Die Roller extrusion systems.
Micro pelletization is a great innovation step how to make smaller pellets with higher drug loadings. Micro Pelletization is a round pellet for moist granulates and extruded products. With suitable additives, pellets can be made into tablets or used to fill capsules. The round shape is ideal for uniform coating. Pellets are good for automatic dosing.
