Home Case studies Sifting pharmaceutical powders

High performance separation of pharmaceutical powders

Particle separation of pharmaceutical powders is achieved with the installation of a high performance separator ensuring product quality and throughput rates

Windlas Biotech Limited (more commonly known as Windlas Biotech) is a well-known researcher and manufacturer of high-therapeutic value drugs for the global pharmaceutical market.  Now with 18 years of experience, in a recent effort to optimize its size separation of pharmaceutical powders at high capacity, the company approached global sieving and filtration specialist Russell Finex for a new innovative round separator.

To ensure particle separation for removal of contamination, the pharmaceutical powders are screened at the granulation stage to separate fine powder from coarse powder. Windlas Biotech first used a traditional rotary sifter for this process. However, this machine delivered powders at a low throughput rate, and was too noisy. This, in turn, affected the rate at which the company could meet customer demand. In order to meet the necessary capacity and hygiene levels, the Russell Eco Separator® was found as the ideal solution to suit Windlas Biotech’s needs.

As an adaptable and accurate solution, the Russell Eco Separator® is designed to meet the needs of modern-day pharmaceutical processing and sieving of powders.  Providing up to five fractions of powder in one operation, ensuring that the product is sieved at the highest quality in order to meet requirements, this is an innovative solution which enables peace of mind for customers. It is also designed with minimal contact parts, reducing production downtime and allowing for easy cleaning.
