Loading Powder in Pharmaceutical Applications

 

Loading powder into machines can be a complicated and troublesome process.

 

The biggest issue is nearly always containment. How do you ensure that no powder is leaked or lost during the transfer?

 

A common problem occurs during the loading of tablet presses, granulators, high-shear mixer, capsule filling machines etc. Often these are loaded from IBCs in the room above the process room. The difficult part is ensuring the powder transfers from the IBC to the machine without any mishaps.  There are a number of ways to achieve a solution including utilising a rotary valve for controlling the flow of powder, or an interlock system between feed chute and IBC outlet.

An alternative problem maybe loading a machine that is on the same floor as the IBC.  How do you transfer the powder from the IBC, into the machine, without spilling or losing powder? In this scenario vacuum transfer is an excellent method of overcoming this problem.
