PharmaConnect® - blender, granulator
Available from GEA Process Engineering Inc
...the fast way to CONNECT your product development
The PharmaConnect® ‘plug and play’ approach enables a number of diverse process modules from GEA Pharma companies to be docked to ONE control module.
The primary processes are based around Aeromatic-Fielder’s PMA™ High Shear Granulator technology, providing the user with the ability to process batches from 100g up to 25kg and over.
A range of standard bowl sizes are available to handle batch quantities of:
1 and 3 litres for development scale, the optimal choice for the first steps in recipe and process development using very small quantities of active material
5, 10, and 15 litres, an intermediate scale for continuation of product development
30 and 60 litre for pilot scale production
However, the modular format of PharmaConnect® allows special modules to be used for customer’s specific needs. For example non-standard capacities, different shapes, or even different materials such as glass.
In addition to the typical high shear granulation process, Aeromatic-Fielder is also offering
PharmaConnect® modules for its NICA™ Extruder and Spheronizer pelletizing system and for its TRV high speed blender. Further modules for other GEA pharma products will be available in the future.
