When a UK based,pharmaceutical manufacturer wanted to increase capacity at their tablet manufacturing andpackaging centre they asked Hosokawa to develop a GMP design, multifunctional, dispensary booth.
To support R&D work for the blending of DPI (dry-powder inhaler) formulations, Hosokawa Micron has developed the Mini Cyclomix lab mixer. Based on the proven Cyclomix high shear blending technology the Mini Cyclomix incorporates may key features that add real benefits for use in the development of pharmaceutical powders.
Hosokawa is now offering customers the opportunity, atdesign stage, to accurately check, how the placement of objects, equipment andoperatives in their downflow booth may affect airflow patterns and containmentall important to the achievement of critical OELs. Using the latest computerizedairflow dynamics simulation software, that displays 3D flow animations,Hosokawa engineers are able to develop individual downflow booth designs thatensure workplace protection from potentially harmful dusts and vapors is thebest it can be. This leading edge airflow dynamics modelling packagecomplements Hosokawa existing ergonomic modelling to combine to deliver themost appropriate downflow booth solution to meet the customer’s needs andworking practices.
Hosokawa Polymer Systems displayed numerous granulators and recycling systems at the NPE 2015 International Plastics Showcase in Orlando, Florida, but Hosokawa’s real show stopper was the new dedusting system which cannot only economically dedust granulated materials at up to 10,000 pounds per hour with ultra-high efficiency, but also can perform complicated separation such as PVC/TPO reinforced roofing, DVD covers with paper and other difficult tasks. Hosokawa’s team met with over 400 customers during the five day long trade event, many of which had serious requirements to find new solutions to clean their recycled materials.
The Mikro ACM® Air Classifying Mill, the first milling system to incorporate an internal classifier, was invented by Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems in 1962. The Mikro ACM® Air Classifying Mill is an air swept mechanical impact mill with a dynamic air classifier designed to grind an extensive range of materials down to a D98 of 20 microns. The company recognized the growing demand for fine size reduction systems that could produce narrow particle size distributions that were required in many chemical, pharmaceutical, food and mineral applications. Over the last 60 years, Hosokawa’s has continued the ACM development to achieve enhanced performance and utility. The ACM has evolved into one of the world’s most efficient and high performance milling systems.
Engineers at Hosokawa have recently completed manufactureof the widest Downflow Booth they have made, to date. Spanning 11m wide, theDownflow Booth was designed and manufactured using Hosokawa modular DownflowBooth concept which delivers construction affordability alongside almostlimitless size capability.
Hosokawa is hosting a free, in-house demonstration focusing on milling and material handling for chemical, food, pharmaceutical & mineral applications. The event will be held on October 14 & October 15 (offered twice for convenience) at Hosokawa’s Summit, New Jersey facility.
Hosokawa’s Mikro Pulverizer® Hammer Mill and Mikro ACM® Air Classifying Mills are some of the most widely used milling systems around the world. During the “Fall Milling & Material Handling Expo”, guests will have the opportunity to participate in live milling demonstration featuring these devices, among other ancillary equipment such as feeders, pneumatic conveyors & dust collectors. The expo is being hosted by Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems, Coperion K-Tron & Sly, Inc.
Efficiently drying powdered materials is an important and often misunderstood step in many processing applications. There are numerous factors to be considered in drying applications, such as desired product results, raw material characteristics, energy consumption and evaporation rates. If all these factors are not carefully evaluated, your drying step could be a weak link in production.
Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems will host a free in-house seminar on Laboratory Size Reduction, Particle Processing & Material Analysis on Wednesday, April 2 & Thursday, April 3, 2014 in Summit, New Jersey. This one day event is being offered twice for scheduling flexibility. This event will include demonstrations and seminars on milling and processing equipment from Hosokawa and low rate micro-ingredient feeders from Coperion K-Tron.
