    L.B. Bohle brings further innovations to ACHEMA 2024 in Frankfurt

    Ennigerloh, Germany: – World-respected builder of advanced systems for pharma production, L.B. Bohle, will showcase further design advances at the upcoming ACHEMA 2024 pharmaceutical engineering and process industries expo in Frankfurt-am-Main.

    Among other innovations, L.B. Bohle will exhibit latest versions of its BFC 5 Laboratory Coater, BRC 25 Dry Granulator and BTS 200 Sieving Machine; all now part of the distinctively styled ‘New Generation’ range that has won multiple design awards for the company.

    Award winning

    L.B. Bohle will once again be found at Stand A71 in Hall 3.0 at the Messe Frankfurt showground, alongside strategic partner KORSCH AG, as part of the Pharmaceutical, Packaging and Storage exhibition zone. The stand display will focus on innovations, advances in machine design and continuous manufacturing technology.

    The three new machines on show follow in the footsteps of the BFC 400 tablet coater, BRC 100 dry granulator and unique QbCon® 1 truly continuous wet granulator and dryer, which were previously launched at ACHEMA and that all went on to gain German Design Awards. The latter two machines return as stand exhibits, accompanied by the LM 40 Laboratory Mixer.

    Continuous Manufacturing

    With the QbCon® 1, Bohle will show the world’s only machine for truly continuous wet granulation and fluidized bed drying. QbCon® 1 offers ideal conditions, especially for the entry into continuous tablet production, as it delivers valid results very quickly.

    Truly continuous drying and granulation is achieved with very short and reproducible residence times in the dryer and stable granule quality in terms of moisture and particle size. QbCon® 1 is space-saving and suitable for throughputs as low as 0.5 kg per hour.

    No more oiling

    With the new BRC 25 dry granulator, L.B. Bohle also meets the increasing demands for continuous processes. The modern electromechanical drive eliminates need for lubrication and oil changes. Further, compressibility is no longer affected by oil viscosity, and energy consumption is reduced with no need for oil cooling during the process.

    The BRC can be disassembled and reassembled in under ten minutes. The screen can also be changed quickly, making it possible to switch from conical sieve to oscillating sieve in a very short time. The BRC 25 and BRC 100 are also equipped with fast and effective wash in place (WIP) cleaning.

    Flexible tablet coating

    With the BFC 5, L.B. Bohle presents its new laboratory coater. Based on the existing stand-alone machine, operation, accessibility, cleaning and flexibility have been optimized.

    A new modular nozzle arm for up to four nozzles, depending on the application, makes for flexibility and excellent coating results.

    The laboratory coater can be operated with a total of three different drum sizes to promote easier scale-ups. As standard, the coater is equipped with two drums that allow batch sizes of 2 to 6 liters or 5 to 13 liters, respectively. The smaller drum allows batch sizes of 0.5 – 3 liters when using a divider plate.

    Small core coating 

    A new slotted mini drum for tests and very small batches of 150 to 350 grams offers even more flexibility, now making it possible to coat small size cores, down to 1.5 millimeters in diameter.

    This makes the drum an effective and profitable addition, particularly in product development and for cost-intensive active ingredients or formulations.

    For the first time, L.B. Bohle will also present the technically optimized and redesigned BTS 200, which is used to calibrate the particle size of dry or wet products. The new flexible system features improved ease of operation, optimized CIP cleaning and reduced product loss thanks to improved blade geometry.

    The L.B. Bohle team led by Executive Directors Tim Remmert and Thorsten Wesselmann will once again use ACHEMA 2024 as an opportunity to meet prospects and customers to discuss new topics in pharmaceutical production and current and new projects.
