Pharmaceutical powder sieving

Russell Compact Airswept Sieve™ improves dust containment and reduces contamination risk with a fully enclosed process when sieving pharmaceutical powders.

When screening pharmaceutical powders, there are multiple factors to consider. Namely, the quality and consistency of pharmaceutical powders must be assured, and the risk of contamination needs to be minimized in order to comply with health and safety standards in the pharmaceutical industry. When manufacturing powders it is vital for the operator to be protected from harmful dust or fumes, whilst also protecting the product from potential contamination.

In this demonstration video, extremely fine pharmaceutical powder is screened using the Russell Compact Airswept Sieve™. The product is fed into the sieve through a conveying line, before it is screened using a fine sieve mesh, where the good product is then dispensed into a bag via a discharge unit.

Combining Russell Finex’s advanced technology with industry standard conveying lines, the Russell Compact Airswept Sieve™ is well suited to applications such as screening pharmaceutical powders when compared with standard vacuum conveying sieves, ideal for pneumatic conveying and check screening material in one operation. This is largely due to its method of screening which moves powder through the sieve pneumatically, a screening method faster than gravity-fed systems.

Not only does the Russell Compact Airswept Sieve™ ensure that powders can be check-screened in a dust free operation, minimizing the risk of product inhalation by operators but the unit is also quick and easy to dismantle and clean, reducing downtime for operators. Moreover, its compact design allows for it to fit into any storage location or in any stage of your conveying process. There are a range of specifications available to suit all applications, including mirror polished and crevice free (down to 0.1Ra).
