Jona, Switzerland: – Dry granulation expert Gerteis will return to America’s high prestige INTERPHEX 2016 expo in New York for the ninth year in succession to showcase its cost-effective roller compaction solutions.

The Gerteis display at booth 1952 will feature live demonstrations of its latest generation Mini Pactor®, as well as an American debut for its Mini Polygran® Plus machine, that also combines R&D with small scale continuous production capabilities, both using constant ribbon measurement with no uncompacted fines.

Both machines will be running constantly throughout the show with individual customer demonstrations available.

Faster roller compaction solutions

President and CEO, Paul Gerteis, will lead the company’s team at INTERPHEX and will be on stand for all three days of the show.

Mr. Gerteis commented: “There’s a good reason why we keep returning to INTERPHEX and this because this is a key show for the US pharmaceutical industry and also a great platform for us to connect with our core client base of CRO and CMO scientists and technical decision makers searching for faster and more reliable roller compaction and dry granulation solutions.”

“Our clients look for effective containment, advanced roller compactor technology, reliable continuous manufacturing capabilities and leading edge application knowledge’ all of which we can deliver,” said Mr. Gerteis.

Bespoke designs

The Gerteis display will also feature video presentations of its key granulation and dry granulation ranges, including the recently introduced Macro-Pactor® with new bespoke design.
The new HMI package and PLC-based redesign also features on the latest model of the Mini-Polygran® Plus and upgraded Mini-Pactor.

The Gerteis display will also include representation from UK-based ChargePoint Technology Ltd., whose patented split butterfly valves and containers form key elements of the total containment roller compactor solution.
