Romaco Kilian KTP 590X single-sided rotary press is equipped with three compression rollers for the production of bi-layer and effervescent tablets.
The KTP 590X is a model in the successful KTP-X series from Romaco Kilian. This extremely versatile single-sided rotary press can be used to manufacture both mono-layer and bi-layer tablet formats. Bi-layer tablets can be compressed at any time on the version with three compression rollers. The tablet press is equipped for this purpose with two standard fill shoe modules, which distribute the powder uniformly in the die. Thanks to the optimised paddle design, even poorly flowing or sticky powders can be processed efficiently and compressed homogeneously. With its three separate compression stations, the Kilian KTP 590X is equally suited for manufacturing effervescent tablets. The powder is tamped initially to prevent air pockets and capping. It is then pre-compressed and finally converted into finished tablets in the main compression unit. The dwell time is significantly longer owing to the use of Kilian 28/41 tooling, meaning harder tablets can be made. All in all, the Romaco Kilian KTP 590X single-sided rotary press boasts a maximum output of up to 510,000 tablets per hour, even in bi-layer mode.
