Explanation:
Spheronizer is apparently an English neologism. A direct translation would be Verkugeler or Verkugler.

spheronizer


Explanation:
spheronizer
A generic name (not a brand name) for a pharmaceutical production machine for the process of spheronization, one type of which is described in the following:
>>>Spheronizer R 250 T -- Application / process:
The machine transforms the rope-like extrudate (spaghettis) into spheres (pellets).
A precisely grooved rotating spheronisation disc on the bottom of the barrel causes the particles to move outwards to the wall of the barrel. The rolling motion on the sidewall works the particles into spheres. Dust particles are binded into the pellets.
Overpressure in the gap between disc and barrel avoids dust accretion.
During spheronisation the disc rotates above the decharging window in the barrel sidewall. For discharging the spheronisation disc has to be moved by hand to the lower position. The pellets are thrown out of the discharging window into the decharging canal by centrifugal forces. -- <<<
