One Pot Processors (AIC POT) offer a choice of mixing, granulation and drying options integrated into one processing vessel.
A single pot processor is a high shear mixer granulator that is also equipped with drying technologies. Thus, single pot processing is the production of granules using a wet granulation process in which dry mixing, liquid addition, wet granulation, drying and sizing of granules is done in one machine.
Requirements for solvent recovery system are lower for single pot processors compared with Fluid Bed Dryers.
Swinging bowl options during vacuum drying results in an improvement of the granule characteristics and a reduction in drying time.
Easy and efficient cleaning (CIP).
By integrating granulating and drying capabilities into a single unit, capital investment and good manufacturing practice (GMP) floor space is lower than other alternatives.
The number of material handling step is decreased, thus reducing the number of operators.
