BEA Technologies MAGNEXFLO is 2021 Pharma Awards winner
Milan, Italy: – The innovative MAGNEXFLO high capacity filter system developed by filtration specialist BEA Technologies (BEA) has been nominated by Pharma Manufacturing magazine as one of its 2021 Pharma Innovation Awards winners.
The Awards celebrate the 20 products and technologies selected by Pharma Manufacturing’s editors and industry reviewers as having made the most significant equipment and technology contributions during the year.
MAGNEXFLO: advanced automatic filtration systems
BEA developed MAGNEXFLO high capacity automatic filtration technology as a solution for clarifying particularly demanding or viscous substances in the chemicals and pharmaceutical industries and for products that cannot be heated. It combines high filtration efficiency with advanced automation in a highly modular and flexible system that can be tailored to specific application with lower processing times and total costs of ownership compared to conventional filter systems or cross-flow plant capacity.
Significantly, it can achieve complete clarification without affecting the properties of gelatins and active ingredients, due to specifically designed filter elements and represents an ideal solution for many difficult to clarify products.
The heart of the system is provided by the generously dimensioned MAGNEX filter element, with a pleated multi-layer polypropylene and other filter media construction that makes it exceptionally effective, with capacity to retain a huge quantity of contaminants, including colloidal particles and long service life compared with classic filter elements, as well as being easily regenerable.
Direct benefits include:
- Lower cost compared to typical existing filters or cross-flow plant with same throughput capacity
- Reduced operational costs
- Direct filtration without need for recirculation
- Filtration effected without any heating of the product
Automatic versions of the MAGNEXFLO platform constantly monitor all process phases with software that continually measures and displays hourly flow rates, pressures and temperatures. Flush, CIP, and regeneration phases are preconfigured to optimize operational safety and minimize consumption of water, chemical solutions and energy.
MAGNEXFLO filtration platforms are available in different versions:
- Fully automatic (PLC controlled) with intuitive dedicated user interface
- Semi-automatic for lower cost implementation
- Fully manual for smaller and less expensive installations
