Higher Weight Sensitivity, Extended Dwell Time Air Compensator the unique driving force behind GEA tablet presses The Air Compensator has a prosaic name; however, it’s any- • the displacement of the compression roller results in longer thing but ordinary. At the very core of GEA innovation, it’s what dwell times (up to 300%), better de-aeration, less hardness makes our tablet presses different, and better. It makes them and capping issues and much higher outputs; on some special and it’s why pharmaceutical companies all over the world press models, the main compression dwell time can be set...

No other presses in the world have this technology. The Air Compensator improves product output, overcomes compression issues and facilitates the pressing of small tablets. It makes the impossible possible. The superior process control improves tablet quality by continuously controlling both tablet weight and tablet hardness — optimizing dissolution and bioavailability — as opposed to only weight in a conventional system. Offering weight control at precompression, extended dwell times for complex formulations, higher yields, cost savings and faster setup, the Air Compensator enables you to...

It is not possible to re-calibrate the primary tablet weight control loop without affecting tablet thickness or hardness. Displacement controlled system: To address any issues regarding accuracy and repeatability, GEA adopted a different tablet weight control principle for rotary presses, based on • measurement of “thickness variations under fixed compression force” instead of “force variations under fixed thickness” • measurement during pre-compression instead of main compression. The most important characteristic of this principle is the linear relationship between what is measured...
