Specialized vibrating grader increases productivity and product quality for pharmaceutical filler manufacturer
Maintaining product quality and strict FDA hygiene guidelines can be accomplished by incorporating industrial separation equipment into the production of pharmaceutical formulations. One certain manufacturer produces a pharmaceutical filler known as an oxygen therapeutic (OT). OT is a powder product utilized to improve the oxygen content in blood and is added to a variety of pharmaceutical formulations such as medications, creams and ointments. In the manufacturing process, it is crucial in separating the OT product into various particle sizes which are accurate and repeatable. After working diligently with Russell Finex and successfully performing machine trials, the company was fitted with a customized Finex Separator™ fitted with the Russell Gated Outlet™ to handle the separation of the pharmaceutical powder in to four different particle size fractions. Also, this unit ensured an increase in productivity and product quality to meet each end-customer’s exact specifications. The Finex Separator™ is a revolutionary vibrator separator that can grade wet or dry materials up to five fractions in a single operation. In addition, the Russell Gated Outlet™ contains a pneumatically regulated outlet which directs the powder flow away from the separator oversize outlets to ensure that the product is screened efficiently. Russell Finex is global leader in solving complex screening and separating difficulties for the pharmaceutical industry.
