A tablet deduster is a type of pharmaceutical production equipment used to remove excess powder or dust from tablets. It is an important step in the tablet manufacturing process, as it helps to ensure that the tablets are clean, smooth, and free from any loose particles or debris.
This equipment consists of a hopper or a feed system that delivers tablets to a rotating drum or a vibratory tray. As the tablets move through the drum or tray, they are subjected to various forces, such as vibration, airflow, and/or brushing, which helps to remove the excess powder or dust from their surface.
Tablet dedusters can come in various sizes and configurations, ranging from small bench-top models to larger, high-capacity units suitable for large-scale pharmaceutical production. They are made of stainless steel or other materials that are easy to clean and meet the stringent hygiene requirements of pharmaceutical manufacturing.
