Twin-screw extruders for medical devices

The GMP (good manufacturing practices) twin-screw extruder series is designed for medical device and pharmaceutical applications. The extruder features precisely designed and machined hardware and controls to meet FDA validation requirements. Screws, barrels, and other parts that contact processed materials are manufactured from metals that are not reactive, additive, or absorptive with the product. Screws and barrels are available in modular or one-piece designs as dictated by the intended usage and required cleaning standards.

The extruders include sanitary ground and polished stainless steel parts for easy cleaning; quick-release couplings for cooling and heating components; paints approved by the Food and Drug Administration, gear oil, and lubricants; calibration/documentation of controls, thermocouples, transducers, and indicators; and validated programmable logic controls and computer-based controls.
