The five-day event for products and technologies for the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries will take place once again at Messe Frankfurt, Germany.



Munters | Hall 5.1, Booth C61

Munters are the global leaders in energy efficient air treatment solutions and work with a range of industries, one of the biggest being pharmaceuticals. Many pharmaceutical products are sensitive to excess humidity -powders, tablets, capsules and diagnostic strips can often lose quality and shelf life when they come into contact with moisture in the air. Munters can provide custom-designed air dehumidification solutions for all these areas of pharmaceutical production, whether in silos, production facilities, warehouses or transport, air humidity and temperature can be consistently and precisely controlled. The solutions can improve hygiene conditions and provide considerable energy and cost savings.

Coperion K-Tron Pharma Feeder

Coperion K-Tron Pharma Feeder

Coperion K-Tron | Hall 5.0 Stand D34

At Achema, Coperion K-Tron presents the next generation of its highly accurate pharmaceutical loss- in-weight feeders. The new K3-PH line of feeders has been specifically designed to meet the growing demands of continuous processing in the pharmaceutical industry. The new feeder design features a modular concept complete with a drastically reduced overall footprint thanks to a new, smaller D4 platform scale incorporating the patented and highly accurate Smart Force Transducer (SFT) weighing technology. The modular quick change design allows the easy exchange of feeder types and sizes as well as hoppers or agitators using the same scale and drive for fast adaptation to new processes and formulations while also ensuring easy cleaning and maintenance. The new design is ideal for multi- feeder clustering in a variety of continuous processes as well as traditional batch processes.

The new modular design includes several innovative modifications. The quick change feeder bowl, agitator and screw combination which can be quickly decoupled from the feeder drive provide for easy and fast changeover and cleaning of the feeder. By opening two clamps the feeder bowl can be released and replaced by a clean one for running a new product. The three available Coperion K-Tron feeder types QT20, QT35 and QS60, both twin and single screw, can be used with the same scale and drive combination. The redesign of the scale from a round design to a trapezoid design facilitates an optimised multi-feeder arrangement with a much smaller footprint.

GEA | Hall 4.0 Stand F46

Under the umbrella theme of “Making Science Work,” GEA will be highlighting its innovative technology and equipment for environmental protection, pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications at ACHEMA.

Not only is ACHEMA the perfect platform for GEA to showcase some of the company’s industrial process engineering expertise, we like to think that, with our integrated solutions, our various test facilities and an unparalleled history of successful installations and experience, we can support your process or provide the inspiration you need to meet your objectives. We supply the added value and the deep-rooted knowledge that counts.

Discover our comprehensive portfolio of innovations, get “hands on” with our products and take part in live continuous pharmaceutical processing demonstrations and, best of all, meet our experts; they’ll be happy to walk you through our process lines and demonstrations and answer any questions you might have about our products and services.

We’ll be showcasing products such as the NiSoX-VALVE, the Mobile Minor, state-of-the-art separation solutions and, for your continued success, GEA Service. Plus, don't miss our future-thinking conference presentation on "Continuous Processing and Industry 4.0."

Furthermore, on 12 June at 11:00, we’ll be holding a joint press conference with other key suppliers to the pharmaceutical sector to announce a number of industry collaborations that will help to facilitate the uptake of continuous manufacturing technology in the drug production sector.

We look forward to welcoming you to Stand F46 in Hall 4.0 and showing you how GEA is making science work.
