Model FCS Series Advanced Film Coating Machines are widely used in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, herbal, chemical, food and confectionary industries. This machine features high quality, advanced design and is manufactured in conformance to the cGMP standard. United Pharmatek's film coating machines are ideal equipment for coating tablets, pills, capsules or candies with organic film, water-soluble film, slow and controlled release film, and sugar film. We have state-of-the-art technology to solve issues arising from difficult to coat products. They are high-efficiency, energy saving, and easy to clean, with minimal waste material. Tablet coating machines work on the simple principle of applying the coating solution through a set of spray guns on a group of tablets inside the coating pan in a bed that may move horizontally or vertically. A concurrent flow of heated air helps to evaporate and dry the coating solution. The coating is equally distributed to the tablets through the rotation of the pan. The rotating motion causes the tablets to tumble within the pan. Coating solution is applied to the rotating tablet bed by spraying it in atomized form, which provides a faster and more even distribution. Spraying nozzles are positioned inside the drum to evenly coat the tablets as they are tumbling inside
All of the operations of the film coating machines, including expansion of PLC modules, setting and control of hot air temperature, and adjustment of drum speed, are controlled by SIEMENS HMI (Human Machine Interface) with SIEMENS Color Touch Screen Panel. The operating panel is a fully enclosed, light touch film interface, which does not influence the cleaning of the main machine. This ensures reliable operating, stable performance and conforming to the requirement of cGMP. Model FCS is made with high quality SIEMENS electrical components.
Within the fully perforated coating pan movement, the tablets form a bed which is preheated at the desired temperature through the heater of the inlet air. During the heating process, the heat exchanger removes the air producing a vacuum; once the set temperature has been reached, the injection of the coating solution suspension begins and the tablet coating process will start until all the tablets have a uniformed coating. Upon completing the desired weight gain from the coating solution, the injection is stopped and the cooling step takes place.
