Enhancing Efficiency and Productivity in Oral Solid Dosage Lines


The pharmaceutical industry has witnessed significant advancements in manufacturing processes and technologies, particularly in the production of oral solid dosage forms. As manufacturers strive to improve efficiency and productivity, the choice of consumable supplies becomes crucial. In this article, we will explore the various types of consumables used in oral solid dosage line along with their application and how they can enhance manufacturing processes in the pharmaceutical industry.

Some of Consumable Supplies in OSD lines:

Bellows: Bellows are flexible, accordion-like components typically made of materials like silicone or rubber. Bellows are commonly used in oral solid dosage lines to facilitate precise and controlled filling of medication into capsules or tablets. By creating a vacuum, the bellows enable accurate dosing and minimize air entrainment, ensuring consistent drug delivery and maintaining product integrity throughout the manufacturing process.

Dust cups: Dust cups are designed to capture and collect excess dust particles generated during the manufacturing process, ensuring product cleanliness and integrity. B and D tools, on the other hand, are specialized equipment used for tasks such as tablet compression and tooling changeovers, ensuring efficient and accurate production of oral solid dosage forms. These tools play a crucial role in maintaining quality and productivity in pharmaceutical manufacturing lines.

Inflatable Seals: These seals, typically made of flexible materials like silicone or rubber, provide airtight and secure closures in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. By inflating and creating a tight seal, they prevent contamination and ensure product integrity during tablet compression, filling, and packaging operations. Inflatable seals enable efficient and reliable production while maintaining high quality and regulatory compliance in oral solid dosage manufacturing.

Tubing: TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) tubing are commonly used in oral solid dosage lines. These flexible and durable materials provide excellent chemical resistance, allowing for the safe transfer of pharmaceutical ingredients and products. TPE tubing are designed to meet the stringent requirements of pharmaceutical applications, ensuring the integrity and quality of the oral solid dosage manufacturing process.

Silicone Hoses: Silicone hoses are commonly used in oral solid dosage lines due to their excellent compatibility with pharmaceutical products. These hoses offer high temperature resistance, flexibility, and durability, making them ideal for conveying tablets, capsules, and granules. They maintain product integrity, prevent cross-contamination, and meet stringent hygiene requirements. Silicone hoses also exhibit good chemical resistance and are easy to clean, ensuring the safety and quality of oral solid dosage manufacturing processes.

Sieves & Screen: Sieves and screens are vital components in oral solid dosage lines. They are used to separate and classify particles, ensuring uniformity in size and eliminating any impurities. These devices play a crucial role in maintaining product quality, enhancing process efficiency, and meeting regulatory standards in pharmaceutical manufacturing.

O-rings and Gaskets: O-rings and Gaskets are crucial components in oral solid dosage lines, ensuring proper sealing and containment of pharmaceutical products. These specialized rubber or elastomeric seals are used in equipment such as tablet presses, capsule filling machines, and packaging lines. They provide a barrier against moisture, air, and contaminants, maintaining the integrity and quality of the dosage forms. They play a vital role in ensuring the safety, efficacy, and shelf life of oral solid dosage production lines.

Diaphragms: Diaphragms play a crucial role in oral solid dosage lines. These thin, flexible barriers are placed within the equipment to regulate the flow of powders and granules during the manufacturing process. Diaphragms ensure uniform distribution and accurate dosing of the materials, preventing cross-contamination and maintaining product quality. They serve as key components in various equipment, such as tablet presses, capsule filling machines, and powder filling systems, enabling efficient and precise production of oral solid dosage forms.
