New all-in-one milling solution for HPAPIs, APIs & Fine Chemical Powders Processing
Beynost, France:– Research-based powder compression and tableting specialists MEDELPHARM S.A.S. announced that it had added the revolutionary Canadian-built Quadro F10 Fine Grind all-in-one milling machine to its range of powder compaction offerings.
The Quadro F10 Fine Grind will now become available to customers in France and French-speaking territories.
The F10 Fine Grind provides a fully integrated and stand-alone solution for active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and fine chemical powder processing that delivers ultra-accurate particle size control, high containment and near 100 per cent yield efficiency, making it an ideal solution for HPAPIs, APIs and fine chemical processing facilities worldwide.
Based on innovative two-stage size reduction technology, the F10 consistently delivers an extremely tight particle size distribution bell curve, meeting narrow particle size distribution demands for processors. The F10 also offers best-in-class cGMP high-containment sanitary features, speed adjustment capabilities and a portable format.
The F10 Fine Grind offers significant advantages in particle size distribution milling control for d90 targets in the 20-60 μm range. The innovative-designed milling housing with dual milling chambers and independently controlled feeder enhances powder incorporation rate adjustability, resulting in very narrowly focused powder distribution curve spans, reducing out-of-spec product waste. The F10 Fine Grind system provides a wide RPM milling range to shift target particle distributions accurately up or down, particularly important when milling multiple powders with varying characteristics. Additionally, the F10 Fine Grind offers adjustable airflow control, enabling greater milling stability and product quality.
Product containment and minimization of operator exposure are becoming increasingly crucial for fine chemicals, API and HPAPI powder processors worldwide. Previously, achieving safe high containment levels has often been expensive, with additional equipment required. The F10 Fine Grind is designed to fully contain all products in the processing and receiving sections of the machine to 1 μg/m3 levels, enabling pharmaceutical processors to achieve desired containment levels with minimal additional capital investment. Further containment features include safety-interlocked purged seals, fully contained product collector, a tightly sealed milling housing, and optional wash-in-place (WIP) capabilities. The F10 is also available in an XP version, and with ATEX certification.
A further benefit of F10 Fine Grind technology is its ability to provide nearly 100 per cent yield efficiency in most production applications. This extremely high rate of product recovery greatly reduces associated costs from product waste and reporting excess losses to governing bodies.
