• Tablet Coating Pan Manufacturers & Suppliers


Coating is one of the key processes in pharmaceutical manufacturing and it involves coating film or sugar on medicines depending on the requirements and protocol. The major coating processes are sugar coating and film coating. Sugar coating is a pretty old method of coating bulk tablets with sugar. On the other hand, film coating is a process that involves coating medicines with a single spray polymer. Tablet Coating Pan provide solution for coating onto tablets after compression process.

We offer conventional coating pan which is also known as small tablet coater. Conventional coating machine is not just in the pharmaceutical industry, but also in food, confectionary and other industries. All contact parts of this machine are built with AISI 316/304 while the non-contact parts are made of AISI 304. The machine is designed with a fabricated structure and stainless steel enclosure. This kind of structure makes the machine easy to clean and operate. It is also mounted on an anti-vibration pad for almost nil vibration which eliminates the need of investing heavily in a separate foundational structure. It has an easy to replace polishing pan and coating pans of other sizes can be fitted to fulfill other requirements.

Working Principle of Coating Pan

The coating round pot in the machine is rotated on variable speeds and the coating material is sprayed by the spraying system provided in the machine. The spraying process is always in line with the technological requirements and protocols in place. The coating round pot rotates and the hot air blower system of the machine supplies hot air at the same time. As a result the surface of medicines gets dried with an even coating.

Design and Construction of Tablet Coating Pan

PAN: The Coating Pan is Semi Ellipsoidal size pan with a circular mouth for charging & discharging of tablets, Pan mounted at an inclination of 45 degrees to the horizontal.

DRIVE ASSEMBLY: The tablet coating pan consists of a suitable 3 Phase, 440 V, 1440 RPM TEFC motor with suitable worm reduction gear box and cone pulley arrangement to give three speed output.

HOT AIR BLOWER: The tablet coating pan unit is provided with a hot air blower consisting of suitable 3 Phase 440 V, 2880 RPM TEFC electric motor & centrifugal blower with damper delivering required CFM. The air is heated by means of suitable electric heater to give air at 30 to 90 degrees Heater with thermostat control and flexible hose pipe.  

CONTROL PANEL: Unit provided with suitable control panel with starters and push button to actuate the drive and for blower The circuits consists of MCCBs, relays and contractors in series Ample overload protection is provided by the MCCB and the relay Wires coming out of the connections are numbered for easy recognition.

MOUNTING: The motor and gear box is mounted inside sturdy MS frame and the pan mounted on the Gearing housing fitted in the stand. Blower mounted by the side of the stand or placed in remote location if required.

FINISH: All joints argon Arc welded and all SS Parts polished to suitable finished required of pharmaceutical equipment MS parts painted to smooth finish.
