Nano bead mill by Frewitt for API production optimizatin case study
One of the world's leading providers and manufacturers of healthcare solutions B. BRAUN Medical SA, located in Switzerland, has purchased a nano bead mill FLEXMILL-LAB NW machine from Frewitt.
The company was looking for a high-performance, easy-to-use and easy-to-clean nano mill, capable of processing very small amounts of API in the pre-formulation phase, as well as larger volumes for preclinical testing.
The result of the preliminary tests convinced the manufacturer in the performance and flexibility of the nano bead mill FlexMill-Lab NW. A unique design optimizes the use of energy, allowing grinding at a low speed and constant temperature. As a result, this machine can process very sensitive products without degradation.
Five, scalable, milling chambers are available and are easily installed in seconds on the nano bead mill head: 15 and 50ml in batch mode, and 100, 250 and 500ml in recirculation mode. In addition, the motor platform of the equipment allows 5 additional, distinct, dry milling processes to be carried out in no time at all: oscillating mill, rotary sifter, conical mill, hammer mill and pin mill; depending on the required particle size, i.e. ranging from several hundred microns to a few microns.
