Solving Vitamin C Issues


Tablet: Round, flat bevel

Tooling Type: D Type

Press type: Fette P2020

 A Vitamin C tablet was sticking to teflon inserts, resulting in the tools needing to be cleaned every hour. This was a huge amount of press downtime. The customer’s goal was 2 hours of uninterrupted production time.

Solution: I Holland reviewed the product and due to its hydrophilic, sticky nature and the abrasiveness of the product, a trial of PharmaCote ECxtra and CX was conducted.

Success: PharmaCote CX performed very well and surpassed the 2 hour target by far with no sticking issues!
