Gabler Hot Melt Extruders
Available from AC Compacting LLC
We offer a complet line of Gabler Hot Melt extruders from research to high capacity production machines. Unlike a typical low pressure/low temperature extruder commonly used in the Pharma Industry to extrude a formulation, the Hot Wax Melt extruders do not use screens and are dual shaft machines (not single shaft). The pressures developed in the encased extrusion barrel are much higher than screen extruders and they are capable of being heated and cooled to the appropriate temperatures required by the product. Additionally you can add several different materials at the front end of the extruder, including liquids, so that the extruder can act as a mixer thus eliminating the mixer that is required with the screen type extruders.
The shafts are made up of sections of varying pitch and flutes so that you can place the correct section where it is needed. In other words the machine is configured to meet the process not the process having to be compromised because of the machine.
Gabler Hot Wax Melt extruders are referred to as the "DE Series," starting with the DE-40, the smallest of the DE Series, with a capacity of20-100 kg/hr; followed by the DE-100 that ranges from 100 to 300 kg/hr; and finally, the largest machine, the DE-120 that can handle up to a maximum of 1,500 kg/hr but more typically can process from 300 to 1000 kg/hr.
