The "bigger brother" of the Spherisator S is the Spherisator M. It was developed to be a compact and easy to use desktop unit, but also to be able to produce smaller samples, sufficient that you can do piloting and process tests. The robustness and the vast amount of options available, right up to continuous production options, make this device a complete all-rounder in Microspheres and Microcapsule development and production.
Modularity was already built into the design, so that the control unit can be used with many different drip casting units. Even the use of the drip casting inside a glove box is no problem, or why not using the option door for the drip casting and its exhaust connection? Most applications that would need expensive glove boxes can so be performed right on your laboratory table.
With the control touchscreen the unit can be operated easily, by software options even clinical trials can be processed on this wonderful device.
The drip casting unit can be chosen to fit right to the materials to be worked on. From simple room temperature units as in this photo up to heatable units with temperatures up to 1200°C everything is possible. With one control unit several drip casting units can be operated. Just plug in the unit you want to use and it is configured automatically.
With the options multi-nozzle plates Microspheres and Microcapsules can be produced in bigger quantities. The only thing necessary for scaling up is to exchange the plate - and voilà! Up to 10 L/h production is possible. Auxiliary equipment includes tanks up to 100 L, flow reactors for continuous production, even a laboratory cooling tower can be installed for the use with wax or metal melts.
Every Spherisator M comes with the capabilities to produce Microspheres (granulation/matrix encapsulation) or Microcapsules (core-shell-encapsulation). The robust structure with industrial standards and easy-to-clean design makes it even possible to operate the unit in laboratory or pilot facilities.
For the different fields of application there are two different material qualities available. The stainless steel housing can be obtained in a brushed/grinded and electropolished version. After selection the surface quality and the voltage, the drip casting unit is selected to fit your materials. Currently available are:
Control M, brushed/grinded, 400V/50Hz or 200/220V 50/60Hz (3L/PE, 16A)
Control M, electropolished, 400V/50Hz or 200/220V 50/60Hz (3L/PE, 16A)
The following options are selectable:
non heated/heated up to 150°C/up to 300°C/up to 500°C/up to 1200°C
without door (non heated only)/transparent door (max. 60°C)/stainless steel door with windows
A vast selection of nozzles, multi-nozzle plates, tanks, reaction containers, flow reactors, cooling towers etc. are selectable.
