AQUARIUS G-K is a newly developed high speed removable turret double sided rotary tablet press. This press was designed for high volume output for the Nutraceutical and Pharmaceutical industries. Features include turret interchangeability as a standard, also the press can be arranged with bilayer mode. It is easily converted with a module and kit design. All of this is built with Kikusui's rugged, reliable and compact design that has been our standard for many years.
It has B (BB, D) type keyed upper punch sockets, 10 ton pre & main compression rollers, and 11kW electric motor. The speed of the turret is 20~80 rpm yielding a throughout capacity for a 55 (67, 45) station press of 132,000 (160,800, 108,000) to 528,000 (643,200, 432,000) tablets per hour. The machine dimensions are approx.W1,200mm×D1,200mm×H1,850mm.
The external finish is stainless steel. The powder/tablet contact parts are arranged from Stainless Steel 316L with electro-polishing.
Also it provides turret changeability as standard; this feature serves to reduce product changeover time, as well as to increase the presses flexibility by allowing the use of B and D tooling on the same press.
