MAY 31, 2018

Ecublens, Switzerland: – Dec Group, will return to the ACHEMA 2018 expo in Frankfurt to showcase latest additions to its proprietary Powder Transfer System, PTS , that provide new solutions to the challenges of small volume dosing.

The Dec stand, once again at Booth D8 in Hall 5.0 at Frankfurt Messe, will showcase FLexPTS as the latest addition to its range of powder dosing solutions.

Precision dosing for pressure reactors

FlexPTS is designed for small-volume dosing in 100 mg – 10 g range and is particularly suitable for the continuous feeding of micro reactors under pressure. The system enables continuous dosing at an adjustable dosing speed of 0.3 secs to a few seconds while maintaining high precision. The device is versatile and takes up very little space and hence can be easily integrated into existing processes.

FlexPTS completes a range of dosing options offered by Dec, which also includes µPTS for less than 1mg doses, Powderflex for continuous conveying and dosing and DosiValve used in combination with PTS.

Live demonstrations

The Dec display at ACHEMA will also include DCS Liquid for filling and emptying drums with toxic liquids, MC DecJet new generation micronizing device and PTS Powder Transfer System with CIP (clean in place) feature.

For the first time at ACHEMA, the Dec stand will host live presentations showing different key aspects of the manufacturing process, including high containment and aseptic manufacturing, process integration, powder blending and micronization technology.

Safer powder handling

The overall theme of demonstrations will be to show the various ways in which Dec can provide highly contained process equipment and complete arrangements from the receipt of the raw material to the packaging solution including safe links between the different powder handling processes.

“We are very pleased to be returning to this very important exhibition for our industry,” said Gabriela Mikhaiel, in charge of the Dec Group Marketing.

“ACHEMA is an important event in our overall mission to promote safer and more efficient powder handling for the pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing industries – a great platform to reach the expert process engineers and decision makers who value advanced technology and solutions,” said Ms. Mikhaiel.

“Much has happened since the previous ACHEMA in 2015 and we have a great deal that is new to show and to talk about,” she added.
