Powtech Review

Just around the corner of Leistritz headquarters in Nuremberg the Powtech Trade fair took place from September 26 to 28, 2017. Not only did our team present the range of products and services from the pharmaceutical extrusion sector, it also exhibited the new ZSE 12 HP-PH twin screw extruder.

Sophisticated features make it a perfect R&D machine. Additionally, it has all characteristics of a production machine which facilitates scale-up. Here are the some key aspects:

The machine is a mobile plug&play solution. You just connect it to the water and power supply and it is ready for operation. Besides its mobile design this machine also comes with a unique and innovative C profile for the barrels. With this it satisfies the demand for easy cleanability and (dis-)assembly by fulfilling the following tasks: On the one hand, it ensures that the hinged barrels are tight. On the other hand, all relevant media connections for heating and cooling of the processing unit are integrated there. Special attention was given to the heating/cooling. Eight separate zones can be heated and cooled due to the barrel design. The temperature can be exactly set and kept steady, allowing only minimum heat exchange between the neighboring zones. A further highlight is a powerful drive. The high torque of 20 Nm ensures a stable operation in various process conditions and the scale-up to the next machine size. After all, the geometrical characteristics of the ZSE 12 HP-PH comply with the larger ZSE HP-PH machines.

The ZSE 12 HP-PH is available for trials in the new ISO 8 certified cleanroom laboratory in Nuremberg.
