Ecublens, Switzerland: – Dec Group (Dec) is returning to Brazil’s increasingly influential FCE Pharma trade show in São Paulo with a full range of powder transfer and processing solutions with a focus on high containment.

Dec will exhibit from Booth H113 at the São Paulo Expo Center, where displays will showcase its expanding range of technologies and capabilities in designing and delivering fully integrated high containment manufacturing solutions.

Jet-milling leadership

Specific applications highlighted will include micronizing solutions, based on Dec’s industry-leading MC DecJet® jet-milling technology, with the new MC DecJet® 30 spiral jet mill.

The Dec stand will also display PTS Powder Transfer System® in action with live demonstrations of powder conveying, often applied for safe reactor charging under the exclusion of oxygen and safely ensure clean and safe powder transfer between processes.

Dec’s Director of Micronization and High Containment Isolation Solutions, Andrew Lemaire, will conduct ‘guided tours’ of the Dec display over the three days of the show.

Focus on DPI

Mr. Lemaire said focus on handling highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs) is particularly significant for the rapidly expanding Latin American pharma manufacturing sector and its emphasis on dry-powder inhalation (DPI) devices that deliver medication direct to the lungs in treatment of respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD.

“The powdered substances used for this purpose need to have a strict Particle Size Distribution (PSD) in the range of 1-5 microns to ensure that the drug constituent part is deposited deep into the lungs and the peripheral airways and that poses particular challenges in powder handling dosing and processing,” said Andrew Lemaire.

Sterile solutions

“Dec Group has recently completed several projects in this field and can now offer our customers a comprehensive contained/sterile solution for the handling and processing of potent powders used for DPIs,” said Mr. Lemaire.

“At FCE Pharma we will show a complete range of solutions that start from incoming materials handling, to fully contained micronization, blending and inhaler filling, using our newly-developed and patented generation of jet mills, the MC DecJet® series,” he explained.
