Doubling Your Tablet Coating Productivity
Thomas Processing built the foundation for the Accela-Cota PRO with the introduction of the original Accela-Cota system in 1968. Today, Thomas’s Accela-Cota PRO is evidence of our passion for building on the tradition of innovation.
One of Accela-Cota PRO’s game-changing differentiators is its cylindrical (C) drum. Traditional coaters rely on a biconical (B) drum designs. When you compare it with the Accela-Cota PRO’s B drum, the C drum design matches the same 60-inch diameter but provides a 35% higher capacity with a 700-liter capacity drum.
Thomas’s Accela-Cota PRO process improvements boost the performance of every batch you coat, every day.
We looked at the original Accela-Cota system and our FLEX line of coaters and put their best features into the Accela-Cota PRO, finding innovative ways to make the most of the interior space to increase productivity.
The cylindrical drum provides a much larger perforated area, which translates to increased airflow across the tablets. Traditional systems are often designed with a 4,000-cfm air handling system, but our Accela-Cota PRO with the cylindrical drum is provided with a 7,000-cfm air handling system.
The increased perforated area allows us to increase the typical number of spray guns with the Thomas Spray Bar. The drum design also incorporates our Helical Baffles, which provide optimized mixing. With all these design features, we can achieve a higher spray rate, which equals shorter batch times across the board.
Based on real-world batch data and our Thermodynamic Analysis of Aqueous Coating (TAAC) model, we predicted the average batch times for a traditional batch coater and how it compares to standard coating machines, giving you accurate, time-saving results.
With the following calculations,
We predict the following results that add up to a 75% increase in productivity:
