More details

EVO – Evolution made by SCHLICK.
New ABC nozzle unit with hygienic design

  • No product build-up thanks to the SCHLICK Anti-Bearding Cap (ABC)
  • Improved process safety with the same spray quality
  • Optimised design for easiest cleaning and maintenance (assembly/disassembly by hand) 
  • The hose connectors are fully integrated into the spray unit
  • GMP design: Simple construction (7 individual parts + 4 O rings)
  • The spray quality is identical to that delivered by our tried-and-trusted 930 S35 model
  • Cleaning needle to standard; available with liquid return system
  • Perfect up- and downscaling for perfect production processes

The new EVO model in the ABC range

‘Simplify and optimise’ is SCHLICK’s motto when developing its solutions. For the S35 range with ABC-Technology®, the abbreviation EVO represents a powerful idea: the integrated connector. SCHLICK has fully integrated the hose connectors into the spray unit. It’s an idea that pays off for tablet coating in particular.

The new design has done more than just simplify handling and eliminate the additional costs of fittings: it has also significantly reduced the nozzle’s weight and the space it requires. At the same time, SCHLICK’s ABC air cap and spray quality remain completely unaltered. This has been investigated and confirmed using laser optics at the SCHLICK Test & Research Centre. There is also a White Paper guaranteeing identical results for the S35 range.

 

The nozzle unit with its built-in connectors is fabricated from a solid block of stainless steel. This has brought its weight and size down by 30%. The practical benefits of this are reduced turbulence, lower heating times and minimised condensation when used for coating applications. Meanwhile, the product is now easier to clean and maintain as there are no parts to remove.

Standard bore holes for liquid operation are available with 0.5 / 0.8 / 1.0 / 1.2 / 1.5 / 1.8 / 2.0 / 2.2 mm.
Alternative bore hole diameters are available on request. The nozzles are also available with and without liquid return system.

Materials: FDA compliant 1.4404 (AISI 316L) materials, surface quality: Ra < 0.8. Other materials available on request.

Benefits of the EVO model at a glance

Identical results – a white paper guarantees identical results from both S35 ranges.

Optimised processes – processing risks due to the use of incompatible adaptors are eliminated.

Easier to clean – cleaning is easier as no fittings need to be removed.

Less turbulence – turbulence in the coater is further reduced – and the thermodynamics of the process improved.

No additional certification – additional certification of materials and fitting seals is no longer required.

Easier handling – no additional tools are required for assembly/dismantling.

Improved flow profile – optimised flow profile with gentle transitions and no edges.

Less condensation – the risk of condensation forming is reduced to a minimum, especially with forced air circulation.

Shorter downtimes – the spray unit heating time is reduced.

Guaranteed identical spray quality

The spray quality is identical to that delivered by our tried-and-trusted 930 S35 model. This has been investigated and confirmed using laser optics at the SCHLICK Test & Research Centre. There is also a White Paper guaranteeing identical results for the S35 range. The two models are within tolerances of ± 2% in terms of liquid flow, flow of the atomisation medium, spray angle, droplet size, droplet speed and droplet size distribution.

    Use of anti-bearding cap nozzles in fluidised bed systems

    Blocked spray nozzles are a widespread problem in fluidised bed systems in which very fine or tacky products are processed. By using ABC nozzles, the pharmaceutical excipient manufacturer DMV Fonterra Excipients has succeeded in avoiding unplanned downtimes. Düsen-Schlick Anti-bearding cap technology (ABC nozzles) is well-established in the field of tablet coatings.

    More operational safety in tablet coating

    In the pharmaceutical industry, flat spray two-substance nozzles are used in coating drums for the coating of pharmaceutical products. If possible, the coating process should not be interrupted for economical reasons. In addition to the geometry of the coater, the drying air and the spraying liquid, the nozzles play a particularly important role in this process. A new nozzle with an antibearding cap (ABC-Technology®) meets the requirement for operating security and improved handling during coating.

    New coating arm for tablet coater

    In tablet production, coating processes require a lot of manual operation and experience: The spray arms and nozzles that are used have to be constantly checked, and the spraying process variables require careful adjustment. A new nozzle and spray arm concept now allows you to achieve considerably more efficient processes.

  • Process Engineering & Optimisation:

    Perfect atomisation without bearding

    Anti-bearding air cap ensures that droplets are well distributed, and that coating and moistening are homogenous. The type of nozzle used for coating and moistening determines the process result. Normally, flat spray two-substance nozzles are used for this process. A new, robust air cap withstands even the most adverse operating conditions and thus ensures a clean spraying process with the ideal drop size.
