Noduliser - Definition and Operation
Nodulisation, also referred to as marumerisation, is a versatile and efficient process that transforms extruded products into small, rounded, or spherical granules. This technique serves as a fundamental method for pelletising various products in pharmaceutical formulations and numerous other industries.
The noduliser, also known as a spherifier, comprises a rotating friction disc situated at the base of a cylindrical container. The extrudate, in the form of threads, is deposited onto the disc as it rotates at high speed. The threads break upon impact with the groove pattern on the disc and, propelled by centrifugal force, collide with the container wall, forming spherical micro-granules through the spinning effect.
