An Innovative Continuous Tablet Coating System
Thomas Processing’s FLEX-CTC Continuous Tablet Coater extends our film coating technology from the typical batch process to a fast and efficient continuous process. Featuring 22 spray nozzles and our proven Accela-Cota® technology in a 24-inch diameter (610 mm) fully perforated drum, Thomas’s FLEX-CTC achieves the same high performance demonstrated in our batch coaters but in much less time. Our FLEX-CTC also offers the industry’s leading product volume flexibility of 100-1,500+ kg/hr. Complete system automation is available with our industry-leading Thomas COMPU-COAT® control software to provide total process control, repeatability, and validation documentation.

Along with innovation, we are committed to helping our clients find the highest return on their investment with our expert solutions. When you partner you with us, your investment extends beyond the system of machines and controls—you also benefit from our experience and proficiency in tablet coating systems.
Thomas’s FLEX-CTC is equipped with an automatic in-feed to introduce tablets to the bed on a gentle, steady basis. Its weight belt interface permits tablet loading automation with our COMPU-COAT controls. The FLEX-CTC’s zero waste gun sequencing system ensures zero product loss during start-up and shutdown. Its long, shallow bed (5-6 inches) and 22 spray nozzles translate into an increased number of passes through the spray zone for every tablet, ensuring excellent tablet uniformity. Its low residence time and shallow tablet bed means minimal tablet erosion and minimal heat exposure to assure complete access and cleanability.
