Roller Compaction – Pharmaceutical

Alexanderwerk Inc. offers the WP Pharma roller compaction series, designed to meet the highest requirements and standards of the pharmaceutical industry, for both production and research and development. Our Pharma roller compactors are offered in either a benchtop or stand-alone design.

The modular design can be almost completely disassembled without the need for special tools. The cantilever roll design allows for easy changeover and cleaning. To ensure a compact design, the machine series has a very low overall height. On the 120 series, the controls are fully integrated into the machine frame. On the larger 150 and 200 models, the control systems are separate. The 120 and 200 series are fully capable of meeting OEB 5 levels, when equipped with an Isolator and automatic WIP system.
