  • Stainless steel perforated drum: 350ml, 1/2/5/10 liters set-up
  • Monitoring and control of all critical parameters
  • Easy filling, discharging and sampling
  • Water and organic solvents
  • Nitrogen recirculation system for oxygen sensitive materials, environmental requirements or drying of high quantities organic solvents
  • DC motor with variable drive speed (3-40rpm)
  • Easy drum changes (no tools required)
  • Critical process data such as temperatures, pressures and speeds are handled by the control unit
  • Unit can be used for pre-clinical and clinical applications

ProCepT’s modular design allows us to provide full flexibility towards integrating the equipment in your laboratory. Various set-ups or even customized designs are possible. The Excel Control system and fanbox can be combined with other ProCepT process modules (such as Pan Coater, Spray Dryer or Granulator) to save lab space and total investment costs. Extra processes can easily be added at a later point in time for a phased investment.
