Melt extruder is the new mixer extrusion range that builds on the proven Umang technology and its benefits. Similar design of the twin screws, extrusion die and cutting mechanism in the process and validation, so that there is no difference to the extrusion process. This unique design of segmented twin screws, mixing attachments and cutting makes the not only a perfect hot melt extrusion granulator but also an ideal machine for performing one stop operations.
The outstanding feature of the Melt extruder range is the the twin screw segmented barrel and twin screw feeders attached to it for uniform and continuous product feeding. Connections, cabling and supplies are completely integrated, covered and sealed so the outside of the machine is smooth and very easy to clean. Our system Melt extruder is a result of high level of engineering expertise and product technology knowledge, quick product changeover increases productivity and cost effectiveness.
The Melt extruder capacity ranges from few 100 gms. to 150 kgs. / hr. featuring through the wall design and movable head, allowing operation with platform and dust-free discharging via a linked mill directly into an IBC. The Melt extruder can be stand-alone or linked to a Cone Mill or Multi Mill to form an integrated system.
With its special versions of the twin-screw extruder suitable for the production of pharmaceutical compounds, Umang is one of the pioneers in the development of Pharmaceutical Hot Melt Extrusion. In this continuous production process, polymers are mixed with binding materials, carrier materials and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API’s). This innovative, flexibly applicable process has recently become increasingly important.

The Umang Pharmaceutech Test Station is located in Vasai, THane, conveniently located very close to Mumbai airport, only forty five minutes from Mumbai International Airport. The Test Station's purpose is to assist our Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical Industry customers with feasibility testing of their products on our equipment, and to be a partner with them in the process development as they move forward from the Research and Development stages to clinical production, and eventually into full-scale Manufacturing.
The station combines decades of design and development know-how in the pharmaceutical industry with the very latest in processing equipment to provide you with a unique opportunity for feasibility, development, and small-scale manufacturing of pharmaceutical products.
Your needs are critical and individual. The UMANG Pharmaceutical Test Station has been designed to meet those needs.
Our expertise in formulation development extends to the development of all conventional dosage forms. Our strategic alliances broaden the scope to consider many Novel Drug Delivery Systems (NDDS), including transdermal & liposomal delivery systems. We consider multiple approaches to improve the bioavailability of drugs. We have expertise in improving delivery of poorly soluble/ permeable drugs and the capability to screen potentially innovative drugs based on pharmacokinetic properties. We possess pelletization, drug-layering, particle-coating and other technologies to achieve extended release profiles for tablets or capsules.
Our analytical development services include assay and RS method development and validation, dissolution method development and validation, stability studies as per ICH guidelines, polymorphic form characterization (DSC/TGA/XRD/Microscopy), cleaning validation studies and HPLC to UPLC method conversions.
Can we encapsulate drugs by Hot Melt Twin Screw Extrusion ?
Yes around 60 C - 80 C the wax / polymer melts.
Do we need a Twin Screw Extruder or a single screw extrusion can deliver the same product quality?
Single screw gives a lesser product performance than a twin screw extrusion.
Will the twin screw extruder contaminate my powder ?
No, the extrusion chamber is on hinges completely dismantlable and cleanable.
Are the screws of segmented design?
Yes the screws can be arranged in a design best suited for the customer products, the segmented screw is completely configurable.
drying/coating as per product / process needs.
Can a Spheronizer be coupled with a twin screw extruder to give hot melt pellets ?
Yes , a jacketed spheronizer.
Is the Extruder and powder feeder controlled by a inverter?
Does the machine have vent ?
Will the process heat up my material excessively?
Just for a flash time.
Do you offer wash down for SS designs ?
