Product Description


Spheronization is a batch process. Extrudates are charged to the spheronizer and falls on the spinning plate. During the first contact of the cylindrical granules with the friction plate, the extrudates are cut into segments with a length ranging from 1 to 1.2 times their diameter. These segments then collide with the bowl wall and they are thrown back to the inside of the friction plate. Centrifugal force sends the material to the outside of the disc. The action of the material being moved causes the extrudate to be broken down into pieces of approximately equal length related to the diameter of the extrudate. These cylindrical segments are gradually rounded by the collisions with the bowl wall and the plate and each other. The ongoing action of particles colliding with the wall and being thrown back to the inside of the plate creates a “twisting rope movement” of product along the bowl wall. The continuous collision of the particles with the wall and with the friction plate gradually converts the cylindrical segments into spheres, provided that the extrudates are plastic (pliable) enough to allow the deformation without being destroyed or sticking together. It is essential that this rope movement is present for an optimal Spheronization. When the particles have reached the desired level of sphericity, they are then discharged from the spheronizer.
