MAAG Hot-melt extrusion pumps & micro pelletizing systems

With the advanced technologies by MAAG, a new era has begun when it comes to making high quality solid dosage forms for pharmaceutical and food applications. MAAG’s technologies produce homogenous, consistent micro pellet sizes, ensure continuous manufacturing in simplified processes, avoids the creation of dust during the process and require no grinding! The complete PFS range complies with pharma and food directives!
To produce homogenous, consistent micro pellets ≥ 0.3 mm for Food & Pharma

The use of hot-melt extrusion & micro pelletizing

Hot-melt extrusion (HME) has been revealed as a successful technology for a large spectrum of applications in the pharmaceutical industry, with proven robustness for numerous drug delivery systems.

Some of the most well-known applications are for taste-masking of drugs, solubility enhancement of poorly water-soluble compounds, controlled, extended, sustained and targeted drug delivery.
The innovative pelletizing technology results in particles of uniform shape and size for optimal direct further processing.

The MAAG extrex® PFS gear pump is dedicated to hot-melt extrusion processes requiring high discharge pressure characteristics, constant volumetric throughput, gentle conveying and narrow temperature ranges. The extrex® PFS is compatible with all extruders and reactor vessels.
