Contained pilot granulation system

May 20, 2011

GEA Pharma Systems ? Aeromatic-Fielder? has launched a complete production plant that takes the process from dispensed raw materials to finished tablet.

GEA Pharma Systems – Aeromatic-Fielder™ has launched a complete production plant that takes the process from dispensed raw materials to finished tablet. The system clearly demonstrates the flexibility that can be achieved throughout the process – including high shear granulation, pelletization and blending, etc. – in a totally contained environment. It illustrates how GEA Pharma Systems’ inspired technology can be selected to form a total solution tailored to suit each user’s specific requirements, whether through integration or split valve technology.

The system is aimed at producers of small quantities of highly potent compounds. The intelligent contained handling systems inherent in the GEA Pharma pilot plant allow it to be flexible, efficient, clean and safe without the need for expensive, bulky and difficult to clean isolator systems. Furthermore the level of containment avoids the need for costly and uncomfortable airsuits, allowing the users to focus on the product, creating faster and more secure results.

At the heart of the production plant are PharmaConnect®, and Flexstream™. PharmaConnect® is GEA’s innovative, modular granulation and blending system offering an unbeatable range of process types and capacities; FlexStream™ is the world leading process technology for spray granulation and pellet coating, delivering unbeatable benefits in terms of greater productivity, lower running costs and a robust and scaleable process.
