The Fitzpatrick Company leads the industry in manufacturing process equipment for pharmaceutical companies. Where solid dosage form requirements predominate, our equipment is instrumental in conditioning powders prior to encapsulation and/or tableting. Fitzpatrick machines process a wide variety of powders, ranging from heat sensitive antibiotics to over-the-counter products such as antacid formulations which require bulk processing capability.
Size reduction equipment is utilized to produce a free-flowing granular product, and to micronize powders before further processing. Fitzpatrick granulators are an integral part of the production process and are used to produce predictable particle size distributions and consistent product properties.
Roll compaction equipment increases powder densities and produces free-flowing granules for high speed tableting and encapsulation. The Fitzpatrick compactors are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry both for primary and secondary processing in saving shipping and storage costs, product recovery, dust control and energy saving. In many cases dispersion and solution times are also improved in both intermediate and final products.
Fitzpatrick machines are designed to be quickly dismantled and cleaned in order to meet sanitary and cGMP requirements. Accurate and repeatable results make this equipment ideal for the most critical pharmaceutical applications, thanks to its WIP/CIP design and the Product Containment System (PCS).
