SIFT-N-BLEND™(PATENT PENDING)facilitates screening of materials in the blender itself while blending;eliminating the need to pre-screen any materials,even the ones with hard lumps.With proper screen selection& speed,more uniform& physically stable blends may be obtained.The semi-tubular screen is mounted onto the blender shell trunnion& rotates along with the shell in the same direction,while a paddle,which replaces the intensifier bar of a standard blender,turns in the opposite direction to the rotation of the screen.A variable frequency drive controls the speed of the paddle.While the shell is turning, the semi-tubular screen picks up the powder& the paddle pushes it through the screen.
a.Elimination of separate pre-screening of raw materials, with reduction in processing time & improvement in dust control
b.Light weight& easy assembly
c.Screen, paddle& mounting tubes are all made 316 SS
d.Interchangeable screens of different mesh sizes may be used depending on the application
e.Effective at lower speeds than intensifier bars
f.Possible to obtain more uniform& segregation-resistant blends because of the shearing action when the materials are passed through the screen,which may coat the finer API particles over the excipient particles
g.Easy to clean components.
h. Available on any existing blender,all sizes,scales& geometries with current intensifier bar drive.
GlobePharma’s blenders are available with Sift-N-Blend on V-Shells,bins& double-cones.
