  • When Powders Fail To Flow

    There are many traditional measurement methods for characterizing the “flowability” of powders: angle of repose, flow cup, tap test. Practitioners know that the information may not be useful some of the time, but experience helps to separate the meaningful test results from those that may be suspect.

Pharmaceutical Powder Blending Equipment

Pharmaceutical Powder Blending Equipment

Dry powder blending of pharmaceuticals is simplified with bin blending that reduces blend times and requires no between batch cleanup. Since products contact only the bin, the benefits of total product containment, immediate product changeover and zero blender cleaning are realized. Pharmaceutical bin blending also eliminates airborne and cross-contamination, product segregation and spillage risks.
