Rotary Press KTP 590X

Featuring three separate compression stations for effervescent products, the technology is particularly ideal for pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals

The KTP 590X was designed by Romaco Kilian with three separate compression stations for effervescent products. The powder is first of all tamped to prevent air pockets, then pre-compressed and finally converted into finished effervescent tablets in the main compression unit. The dwell time is significantly longer owing to the use of 28/41 tooling, meaning less risk of capping and the option of harder tablets. The KTP 590X can also be fitted with two standard fill shoe modules at any time and used to manufacture bi-layer formats. The new fill shoe generation processes even poorly flowing or sticky powders extremely efficiently. Thanks to the optimised paddle design, the powder is uniformly distributed in the die and homogeneously compressed. All in all, the Kilian KTP 590X boasts a maximum output of up to 510,000 tablets per hour.

KTP 590X rotary press

The KTP 590X rotary press is the newest model in Romaco Kilian’s KTP series. With its three design features “Cool, Fast & Clean”, the technology is particularly ideal for pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. “Cool” stands for process temperatures of less than 30°C, which is an advantage when processing temperature sensitive vitamins or medications. “Fast” denotes the optimised retooling and cleaning times which enable fast product changes. “Clean” refers to the hygienic design, which improves both product quality and process reliability. The compaction, retooling and service areas are strictly separate for this reason. The patented bellows protect the tablets from contamination with lubricants during compression.
