Pharmaceutical spec powder sifters
Operator friendly gyratory sifter increases output rates and health and safety compliance in pharmaceutical manufacturing
By: Russell Finex Inc
At one plant, the company produces a range of pharma formulation products. To ensure only high-quality products are manufactured, the pharmaceutical powders are screened at the granulation stage to remove contamination. During contract manufacturing, the company processes various pharmaceutical products for different customers, so it is imperative to have a screening machine versatile enough to handle the properties of numerous powders, being quick and easy to strip down and clean.
Previously, Windlas Biotech was using a traditional rotary sifter at this stage of the process. This machine was noisy and unhygienic, and had low throughput rates, meaning the company was struggling to meet the demands of its customers. After analysing capacity requirements, necessary hygiene levels and budget, it was decided the Russell Eco Separator® was the ideal solution for this application. Raju Lokhande, General Manager at Windlas Biotech said, "We chose to consult Russell Finex for a high-performance separation solution due to the company's vast experience within the pharmaceutical industry and its reputation for providing equipment to meet specific customer requirements."
As an adaptable and accurate solution, the Russell Eco Separator® is designed to meet the needs of modern-day pharmaceutical processing and sieving of powders. Providing up to five fractions of powder in one operation, ensuring that the product is sieved at the highest quality in order to meet requirements, this is an innovative solution which enables peace of mind for customers. It is also designed with minimal contact parts, reducing production downtime and allowing for easy cleaning.
