Customized pharmaceutical powder handling system at PSL

PSL high containment isolator and Russell Compact Sieve combine to provide innovative screening solution for pharmaceutical manufacturer

Powder Systems Limited (PSL) hold a wealth of experience engineering containment processes, supplying high-quality customized process equipment to worldwide pharmaceutical, chemical, and laboratory industries. When a leading pharmaceutical producer sought a customized pharmaceutical screener, PSL combined expertise with Russell Finex, global leaders in separation technology, to provide a customized solution.

PSL Contained Pharmaceutical Screener Russell FinexA contained screening solution was required to enable the customer to manufacture potent compounds to CGMP standards. PSL combined its own high containment isolator with the Russell Compact Sieve, providing a unique, safe, usable solution to safely sieve hazardous material, capable of processing compounds with an occupational exposure limit of less than 1.0μg/m3.

PSL’s isolator has a half-body suit which allows unrestricted access to the interior of the chamber, whilst ensuring the operator remains safely clear of direct contact with the product. Due to its compact design, the Russell Compact Sieve® was the smart choice for installation inside the isolator. This pharmaceutical screener provides accurate, high capacity screening at less than half the size of traditional industrial sieves, accurately removing all contamination. A customized version was manufactured on this occasion, with the sieve motor needing to be outside of the isolator, for explosion risk purposes. This was therefore placed in a control cabinet with a plate separating the motor from the sieve.
