06.03.2017 Continuous loss-in-weight feeders at Eli Lilly

Coperion K-Tron, Sewell, NJ, played a key role as part of the supply team for Eli Lilly who won this year’s prestigious ISPE FOYA (Facility of the Year Awards) in two important categories: Facility of the Future and Process Innovation. Coperion K-Tron provided the continuous loss-in-weight feeders and materials handling equipment for each of the Lilly facilities and worked closely with the Lilly team in the integration and design of the feeder system.
As part of the supply team of Eli Lilly, Coperion K-Tron provided feeding and materials handling solutions for the continuous process. A Coperion K-Tron pharmaceutical feeder is used to feed each component of the direct compression blend. The superior accuracy, coupled with an innovative control system, makes the gravimetric feeder a critical component to the continuous direct compression process. Specially engineered designs for ease of access and cleanability, as well as integrated control platforms were also important attributes of the continuous feeding systems at Lilly.
