The Caleva Spheronizer 380

The Spheronizer 380 is a floor standing production Spheronizer that can be customized to your requirements. This model is designed for large scale experimental use and small quantity batch production. It is small enough to be moved on the fitted castors yet sturdy enough to be considered as production equipment. It is designed to work as companion equipment with the Caleva 40 gear extruder or Caleva 35 screen extruder.

The Spheronizer 380 is a robust, mobile and very practically sized small production machine that is also often used for larger scale development trials as well as smaller scale production.

The front panel has all the main controls. The spheronizer disc is driven by an AC motor with an inverter. Disc speed is controlled by an analog potentiometer with digital speed display in RPM. There is also an optional PLC control available allowing up to 10 preset disc speeds. The machine uses an electronic timer with push button controls or a PLC to set spheronization time and product discharge. The automatic mode allows user-defined processing times, and an Manual/Auto changeover switch is provided to allow the user to override the automatic timer control, if necessary. The optional PLC controls allows the user to set time points as well as set the speed of the spheronizer at specific time points.

The spheronizer 380 is supplied with a spheronizing disc with 6mm square pitch cross hatch as standard. Other types of discs are available.

The operator is protected from all moving parts by safety interlocks and is designed in accordance with GMP guidelines.

The Spheronizer 380 is one of a comprehensive range of extruders and Spheronizers offered by Caleva.
