Title
(EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR DRYING SOFTGELS WITH HYDROPHILIC FILLS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES POUR SÉCHER DES CAPSULES À ENVELOPPE MOLLE AVEC DES CHARGES HYDROPHILES
Abstract
(EN)
Provided herein are systems, methods, and processes for drying a softgel having a hydrophilic fill material and one or more active ingredients. After forming the hydrophilic softgel, for example, the softgel is dried by sequentially passing the softgel through a series of specific drying conditions, in which the first drying condition has a low temperature and low dew point. In certain examples, controlled airflow is also used to dry the softgels. By using the systems, methods, and processes, the total time to dry the hydrophilic softgel can be beneficially reduced from several days to about 24 hours without causing shriveling of the softgel.

L'invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés et des procédés de séchage d'une capsule à enveloppe molle ayant une charge hydrophile et un ou plusieurs principes actifs. Après formation de la capsule à enveloppe molle hydrophile, par exemple, celle-ci est séchée par passage séquentiel dans une série de conditions de séchage spécifiques, la première condition de séchage ayant une température basse et un point de rosée bas. Dans certains exemples, un flux d'air régulé est également utilisé pour sécher les capsules à enveloppe molle. A l'aide des systèmes, des procédés et des processus, le temps total pour sécher la capsule à enveloppe molle hydrophile peut être avantageusement réduit de plusieurs jours à environ 24 heures sans que la capsule à enveloppe molle se ratatine.
